The best of Samantha Bee from the Daily Show (video)

A compilation of the best of Samantha Bee, from the Daily Show.
Samantha-BeeSamantha Bee has always been my favorite on the Daily Show.  Though I do have to say, I’ve never been a fan of John Oliver’s segments (or anyone else other than the relatively new guy, Aasif Mandvi, who totally cracks me up), but Oliver is amazing at the guest host during Stewart’s absence.

Which makes me wonder whether they’ve got him doing the wrong job as correspondent, or whether the writers truly do write the show (which wouldn’t explain who writes his role as correspondent).

    The following shocking news item is only slightly off-topic: “Russell Peters is Forbes’ third-highest earning comedian”
    “The Brampton, Ont., comedian is said to have pulled in $21 million US over the one-year period beginning June 2012, with Forbes’ earnings number being based on estimates of pretax gross income compiled with help from agents, lawyers and others in the industry.

    Jerry Seinfeld topped the list with $32 million US, followed by Las Vegas ventriloquist Terry Fator, who hauled in $24 million US. Rounding out the Top 10 were Jeff Dunham, Louis C.K., Kevin Hart,
    Larry the Cable Guy, George Lopez, Daniel Tosh, Gabriel Iglesias and Ron White.” http://www.cbc.ca/news/arts/story/2013/07/11/peters-russell-forbes-comedy-list.html

    Here he explains how to become a Canadian citizen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOm-15621bs

    John,

    Oliver has a writer’s credit as well as being on-air. Oliver is an excellent writer. Subscribe to The Bugle podcast, his long-running weekly effort with Andy Salzman, for terrific weekend fun.

    This “best of” isn’t very good at all. For instance, practically the entire “Cash Cow” sequences was brilliant and the only thing they put in was a teeny-tiny ending bit that makes no sense without the context.

    I still think one of her best segments is “news I’d like to f*&k”.

    As Canadians, Samantha and Jason bring an outsider’s view of American politics that shapes their delivery but also probably affects the writing. I wonder whether John Oliver’s success as host is from the writers bringing their A game and trying something new. It must be easy to get into a rut with a long-running host, knowing exactly what he likes and doesn’t like. Oliver also has years of shows to look at to gauge audience response, something John Stewart didn’t have when he was getting started.

    The Daily Show often takes a full-voiced stand on issues while the Washington press poodles say nothing, fearing “loss of access”.

    I can’t find the video, but Sam illustrates it as, “Oil is
    drilled. Some inevitably spills onto the ground, where it is consumed by
    animals, which then die and are buried, and millions of years later
    they turn into oil to be drilled… and the circle of life continues.”

    I like Bee better.

    Re: John Oliver: I also think he’s done a great job as guest host. A little uneven at first, and I think he’s still feeling his way on the ad-libs, but on the other hand he’s waaaaaay better than Jon Stewart was during his first six months to a year as host of TDS.

    As I said the other day, while I love Samantha Bee and think she’s hilarious (I’m surprised they didn’t include her ‘Circle of Life’ piece on oil drilling*), I believe Jessica Williams is the one to keep an eye on for future great things.

    She is hilarious! It took a while to catch on to Oliver, I think because of the accent, but I think he is brilliant and glad he got the chance to shine. He is very funny.

    I LOVE Samantha Bee! Her parody of what passes for a television reporter these days is dead-on and hilarious. I also think she and Jason Jones are a super-hot and hilarious power couples.
