Before hosting ‘Full Frontal’ on TBS, Samantha Bee was the longest-serving correspondent on ‘The Daily Show.’ And yet as she tells me in this week’s episode, Comedy Central didn’t even consider her as a possible successor to Jon Stewart when he stepped down four years ago. Bee opens up about that experience and a lot more, including her second ‘Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,’ why she’s so disappointed with ‘handsy’ Joe Biden and what it felt like to have the president of the United States call for her to be fired on Twitter.
