Samantha Bee, World Leader
Just when you think that things couldn’t get much better for Samantha Bee, Fortune Magazine names her one of the World’s 50 Great Leaders.
Her weekly show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee—now in its second season on TBS—has garnered near universal praise, recently picking up a Primetime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Writer for a Variety Series. In late 2016 she was named Ad Week’s Creator of the Year.
And now she’s joined the ranks of Pope Francis, Ava DuVernay, Justin Trudeau and other luminaries that are—according to Fortune—offering hope, bringing people together and building bridges in an increasingly polarized world.
Bee demonstrated all these qualities when she invited conservative commentator Glenn Beck to the show late last year. Watch Bee and Beck become "strange bedfellows" in this clip.
Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on TBS.
