Samantha Bee teases upcoming late-night TBS show: 'I am female as f--k'
Former Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee is getting her own late-night gig: a new series on TBS. The comedian pokes fun at the genre’s lack of lady talent in this new teaser for the show, unveiled at Turner’s Upfront presentation in New York City on Wednesday.
In the clip, Bee faces a wall of current hosts like Jimmy Fallon, James Corden, and Jimmy Kimmel and notices something missing. As a waiter offers her a variety of cased meat—he’s heard really good things about the English banger (a reference to John Oliver)—Bee announces she’s “done with sausages.”
Bee is also working on a scripted TBS comedy with her husband, fellow Daily Show alum Jason Jones, called The Detour. Bee told EW all about the upcoming series in a recent interview, available here.
