Terry Crews and Sam Bee's Full Frontal PSA explains why your male rape jokes suck

Explaining that even she needs to do better when addressing the issue of male sexual assault, Samantha Bee brought on a surprise guest to help out on last night’s Full Frontal.

 Samantha Bee tries to out-crazy the NRA's Dana Loesch on Full Frontal

After ripping America’s gun-lovin’, race-baitin’, late-night host-attackin’ gun lobby shills the National Rifle Association for—among other things all but guaranteed to leave a blood trail—using their army of relentless right-wing propagandists to “make a bunch of people in pussy hats look like Vietnam,” Samantha Bee…

On Full Frontal, Samantha Bee apologizes for her bad words, waits for the outrage over Trump's cruel actions

After calling Ivanka Trump (presidential daughter and, Samantha Bee was careful to point out, advisor) a “feckless cunt” for doing precisely nothing to curb her father and boss’ family-sundering immigration policies, Bee became the 24-hour cable news cycle’s newest shiny thing, to her regret.

Puerto Rico is a great place for Samantha Bee's comedy and outrage

Even Samantha Bee's Full Frontal team can't keep up with Trump's fat mouth in The Apology Race

Sam Bee examines evangelical responses to Trump, from quitting in protest to "Aryan death cult"

Samantha Bee dares Alabamians to prove "Yankee assholes" like her wrong by rejecting Roy Moore

Airing only once a week, Full Frontal With Samantha Bee has both the handicap and advantage of playing catch-up on the week’s events.

In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Samantha Bee offers men some advice—and a warning

Having only one show a week to take swings at the worst people in America usually means that Samantha Bee’s punches land with the accumulated force of a weekend spent seething at the latest asshole’s assholery.

Full Frontal With Samantha Bee returned on Wednesday, with America’s favorite Canadian late-night comedy host catching up on all she’d clearly not missed while she, one can only hope, slept the sleep of the just, somewhere far away from the Trump-despoiled landscape she regularly scours for injustice.

Samantha Bee is helping an anti-Nazi group make up for a lost federal grant

Fighting Nazis is very “in” right now, unless you’re the sort of asshole who would rather side with the Nazis, but it can be tough to fight Nazis when you’re an organization that works to counteract white supremacism and some asshole decides not to give you a federal grant you were promised. That’s exactly what…

Sam Bee profiles some shitty men and some inspirational women on Full Frontal

A weekly, half-hour late night political comedy show in the age of Trump has to find a strategy to plow through a week’s worth of alarmingly awful news, some of which inevitably drops right before air time.
