I am a huge Jon Stewart fan. Like many, I was sad to see him leave The Daily Show, especially with the material that was to come. So you can imagine how excited I was when he came back for a comedy bit on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I ate it up. I really mis that dude. Then they did a segment like the good ol’days. Double the excitement!
Many are writing that he’s retired. But he’s not. He’s a producer on the Late Show, and he’s working on another show. And he’s probably working on a lot of other stuff, not just animals.
Still, until the return of our fake news messiah, many of us were left with a void. Stephen is doing a great job on The Late Show. Trevor is doing very well taking over from Jon, but it’s not the same. It’s lacking a certain je-ne-sais-quoi (It’s lacking Jon Stewart…). I know this is unfair. I love Trevor Noah. He’s a great comic.
But. However. That void, for me, has been filled, at least once a week, by Samantha Bee and her show Full Frontal. I’ve been in love with her ever since I first saw her on The Daily Show as a correspondent where she killed every single time. And now she’s killing with her own show.
It’s only one night a week, unfortunately, and most of it is freely available on her website and Youtube channel. Check it out for yourselves and share your thoughts!
“But what about John Oliver, Chris?” – Yes, John Oliver and his team are doing an incredible job. Those in-depth pieces are masterful.
I just want to say: Thank you Samantha Bee for being a bawse!
