Biography

Samantha Bee gained international recognition for her recurring role as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" (1996-), baring the distinction of being the first "Daily Show" correspondent of foreign citizenship. She was also featured in numerous films and TV series, most notably Woody Allen's "Whatever Works" (2008) and Jonathan Ames' HBO comic crime series "Bored To Death" (2009-2011). Bee also held another unique Daily Show distinction: she was the only correspondent on the program to be married to another correspondent, Jason Jones.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Sex with my first boyfriend was a little bit like learning how to put in a tampon, but only half as enjoyable!" -- from Bee's book I Know I Am, But What Are You?

.

"I was playing with my dollies at the time -- getting them ready for bed, putting their hair in pin curls -- when [my mother] tossed [a book] at me. It was this little red book. It wasn't a scientific book. It was just a book that described every sex act imaginable. And I was an avid reader so I opened up the book and I started reading and man, I had questions." -- from NPR, June 2, 2010

.

"It's really nice that they hired Jason because that makes it a lot easier on me because we have adult time together. Being at work is kind of like being on a date minus the S-E-X." -- from NPR, June 2, 2010

.

"I've spoken to a lot of lapsed Catholics since I wrote the book and we all had a crush on Jesus. I mean, he was really designed that way for young girls to find him sexy and attractive. ... I can instantly recall the guy who played Jesus in Jesus of Nazareth -- I mean, that was a really important part of it for me. I wouldn't have been interested in it at all if he hadn't had dazzling blue eyes and wonderful silky hair. I mean, would any of us?" -- from NPR, June 2, 2010

.

"The people I really feel sorry for are all the writers out there who wrote these outrageous comedic romps about a grossly unqualified person who goes on to become a Vice Presidential candidate in a hotly contested presidential race. With hilarious results. They must be so bummed." -- from The Onion A/V Club, Oct. 21, 2008
