Hallelujah! At long last, we’re finally getting a real life, actual, female woman on late night– and if this promo is any indication, all those talk show dudes won’t know what hit ’em.
Well it’s about time. Former Daily Show correspondent and all around funny person Samantha Bee is getting her own late night show on TBS– and we’ve now got our first clip of the new talk show! Though no premiere date has been announced at this time (nor has an official title), that isn’t going to stop us from getting excited. Check out the hilarious sneak peek to see how exactly Samantha plans to shake up the “sausage” heavy late night landscape!
Samantha Bee’s Late Night Show: Promo
In a first promo for her new talk show, Samantha Bee pokes fun at the severe lack of women in the late night landscape. Champagne flute in hand, she stops to observe an “art exhibit,” consisting of the headshots of all the current late night hosts.
Can you guess what they all have in common?
“When I look at each piece individually I like it,” she says, as she stares curiously at the various faces on the wall. “But when I take a step back I feel like something’s missing,” she adds, before a cater waiter approaches right on cue.
“Sausage?” he asks her.
‘Done With Sausages’
“I have no idea what that one is,” he adds as we are shown a picture of James Corden.
Taking in all the options, Samantha ultimately chooses none of the above. “You know what?” she says. “I think I’m kinda done with sausages.”
Us too, girl!
Are you excited to see a woman on late night?
