Samantha Bee said a tearful goodbye from The Daily Show earlier this month as she moves to TBS to host her own late-night talk show. The longest-serving correspondent in Daily Show history just released the first, very funny teaser trailer for her new show.
In the clip, she regards a wall of framed portraits of the many (very white, very male) talk show hosts in what seems to be a gallery, wondering to herself what it is that seems to be missing. Bee drives the joke home when her musing is interrupted by a waiter carrying a platter of sausages, before she dismisses him, saying “Actually, you know what? I think I’m kind of done with sausages,” along with a little nod to her fellow former Daily Show co-worker John Oliver in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment.
It all ends with her reminding her audience emphatically that “I am female as fuck,” in perhaps the best introduction of any of the new slate of hosts currently taking their place in the new era.
