Samantha Bee was born and raised in Toronto Canada and understands that, yes, it's very clean there. Having no appreciable skill set or professional aspirations, she turned to acting and found it compatible with her lazy lifestyle. She began her career by doing numerous commercial campaigns, as well as participating in the all-female sketch troupe The Atomic Fireballs. In 2003 she joined the cast of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" and now holds the title of Most Senior Correspondent, having systematically eliminated all those before her. In addition to her work on "The Daily Show," Bee can be seen opposite her husband Jason Jones in the feature film "CooperÂ’s Camera," in the upcoming feature "Motherhood," and has most recently filmed a tiny part in a Woody Allen film, which she is praying won't be cut.
Bee is the recipient of the 2005 Canadian Comedy Award for "Pretty Funny Female," but nobody ever thought to send her the statue.
When Bee is not working she enjoys photographing her children in foolish outfits and correcting spelling errors on menus.
Her "safe word" is "horseballs."
