Samantha Bee rose to fame
as a correspondent on
“The Daily Show with
Jon Stewart,” where she
became the longest-serving regular correspondent.
After 12 years, Bee left to
start her own show, “Full Frontal with
Samantha Bee.” But the funnies didn’t stop there. In the throes
of the 2016 presidential election, Bee’s full-throated feminist take
on the news and jokes-per-minute blitzkrieg style almost belied
her polite Canadian roots. As we look at exemplary artists among
our neighbors to the north this season, Bee stands out as someone
who can share what makes America great, earning her spot on
the Time 100 list. Nov. 10,
7:30 p.m. Tickets $35–$55.
