About Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Hailed by The New Yorker as "America's new Comedian-in-Chief," host Samantha Bee took late night by storm with her bare-knuckled coverage of the 2016 Presidential election. Now the Full Frontal team is leading late-night's efforts to keep the new administration honest. Or make them honest. Or just laugh at their dishonesty.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee recently announced its first annual "Not the White House Correspondents' Dinner," which will take place on Saturday, April 29, in Washington, D.C. Bee will host the gala affair, welcoming journalists and non-irritating celebrities from around the world.

In addition to covering Washington politics, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee shines a spotlight on stories beyond the beltway, from untested rape kits in Georgia to abortion laws in Texas to diaper bills in California, as well as national tragedies such as the mass shooting in Orlando. Full Frontal also travels around the world to cover international stories, with segments from Jordan, Germany, Russia and Scotland.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The series is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.
