Samantha Bee is a former correspondent for The Daily Show.
As of 2006, Bee is currently the only female correspondent on The Daily Show, although the show has had several others since its inception. She was The Daily Show’s first non-U.S. citizen correspondent.
Bee is married to fellow Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones, lives in Manhattan, and frequently visits Canada, and has indicated her intention to work toward U.S. citizenship. In late 2005, Jones became a freelance Daily Show correspondent while Bee reduced her workload due to her pregnancy. In January 2006, the couple welcomed their first child, Piper Bee-Jones.
She returned to The Daily Show, to raucous applause from the audience when Stewart summoned her, in March 2006.
