Top 25 Women of Influence 2017: Samantha Bee



Samantha Bee

Host, Full Frontal

When Toronto-native Samantha Bee’s news satire show, Full Frontal, premiered in February of 2016, a lot of the buzz surrounding it was focused on the fact that she was the only woman in late night. Now in its second season, the conversation has shifted to the quality of the content — which Samantha is admittedly grateful for. That content is dominated by passionate take-downs of President Trump and his policies (often with a creative slew of insults), and comprehensive coverage of stories traditionally seen as women’s issues, presented in a way that can make her entire audience, male and female, constructively angry.
