FULL FRONTAL WITH SA­MAN­THA BEE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WATCH ON PRESTO -

8PM, SBS2

De­spite 12 years on The Daily Show, Sa­man­tha Bee wasn’t con­sid­ered for the host­ing role af­ter Jon Ste­wart left. So she cre­ated her own Daily/Weekly-style show with a key dif­fer­ence: She doesn’t have a desk. Also she’s a woman, half her writ­ing staff are fe­male and a third are non-white. So it’s a com­edy news show that makes a virtue of its dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. Worth a look.
