Watch your bestseller-list ass, Chelsea Handler. For years, Samantha Bee has been giving brain boners as Most Senior Correspondent on “The Daily Show” and now Canada’s finest import has published her first book, a collection of autobiographical essays titled I Know I Am, But What Are You?.
From saucy recaps of her Barbie dolls’ sex lives to the bittersweet tale of meeting husband, fellow “Daily Show” correspondent Jason Jones, while performing a Sailor Moon musical for children, Bee’s book will have you snorting milk out of your nose (or else something is seriously wrong with you). And because she is awesome, Bee poses on her own book cover in a bumblebee costume. But don’t worry, boys, in the author photo on the back cover she is nude.
Bee agreed to chat with The Frisky, so I called her up armed with list of questions. In part one of our interview, we talked about the expected — being a woman in comedy, her book, and “The Daily Show,” of course. What I did not expect was that she would start our interview by telling me about her vagina. Keep reading »
Poor men. They have it so hard! As Samantha Bee
pointed out in Wednesday’s “Daily Show” skit, they only run 485 of the Fortune 500 companies and three branches of government. How’d this happen, babycakes? Let’s find out … and remember, it’s satire

I love Serena Williams
. And I love her even more after watching this clip of her on “The Daily Show
” last night, where she teaches Jon Stewart how to dance if he wants to pick up the ladies. (Scoot forward to :45.) She also reveals that she and Venus often have dance-offs. Glad to see the whole U.S. Open line judge incident
hasn’t stuck with her. [The Daily Beast

There was a huge gay rights
march in Washington, D.C. this weekend
and “The Daily Show”
had its best man on the case. John Oliver hit the streets to talk with rainbow-wearing folks about their nefarious aims—equal rights, fair treatment, dangerous things like that. Brace yourself, folks, because they’re here, they’re queer, and they have a gay agenda

Is Jon Stewart going to take over for Walter Cronkite? Not exactly, but they now share a title. A Time Magazine poll revealed that Jon is now America’s Most Trusted Newscaster. He won 44 percent of the vote, coming in at first or second place in every state except Vermont. Brian Williams came in second, followed by Charlie Gibson. Katie Couric was dead last. But there’s something a little odd about this poll… Keep reading »
Happy Day Without A Gay! Jon Stewart made his feeling about gay rights and gay marriage known on last night’s “Daily Show,” where he tore guest Mike Huckabee a new one. Nicely, of course. Clip above! Keep reading »
Last night Emmy’s were a snooze fest, but there were some real winners we want to sleep with! First, Jon Stewart, the Daily Hotness alum who hosts “The Daily Show”, won a statuette for Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series. Stewart makes us sweat his sexy, suit wearin’ style and then gets us giggly with his silly side. The second stud with a statue, “Survivor”’s Jeff Probst, winner of the Outstanding Host for a Reality Program, makes being marooned on deserted island look GOOD. Something tells us, if we ever got a hold of the raw footage of that show, we’d have proof that perfectly bronzed Probst doesn’t have any tan lines. The third winner of the night, Jeremy Piven, aka Ari Gold from “Entourage”, has been making us want to seal the deal since his film roles in the early ’90s. He won last night for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, but we’d like to make him our main man…or at least part of the hottest ménage in Hollywood. So while these three winners have never been in anything together, we ladies of The Frisky would like to offer to be their first joint creative project. [Buzz Sugar] Keep reading »
The Daily Show did a segment on abstinence-only education and suggested a fun activity for those holding onto their chastity. Dry-humping! Oh and our new favorite word for our vag since va-jay-jay is so 2007? Shame-cave! [Feministing] Keep reading »
How could anyone resist the mouth on Stephen Colbert or Jon Stewart or Conan Oâ€™Brien? Between the suits, the wit, the perfect hair, and the geek chic, sometimes we just want to watch the handsome hosts on mute in slow motion. And it looks like theyâ€™re in on our dirty little secret. In true form, theyâ€™ve managed to even outdo themselves! Like a pack of superheroes, the three combined forces last night on all of their programs. Thatâ€™s right 3 for the price of 1! The too-hot-to-handle trio have had a hilarious back and forth feud on-air over the past week. In Colbertâ€™s cocky form, he claimed he was responsible for Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabeeâ€™s success. Conan then countered claiming he created Colbert. Then, through a vintage tape of the Jon Stewart Show, which had the stud back in early 90â€™s duds, Colbert came on The Daily Show to argue that Jon was in fact the god who created them all. (Weâ€™d be happy to kneel at his alter!) But nothing seemed to settle it, and Conan was ready to wrestle.
Monday night, the argument culminated on Conan in one of the funniest fight scenes of all time. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert snapped up to Conan like Jets from West Side Story, they knucked it up Three Stooges style, and then they danced. We still can get the picture of the three of them showing off their smooth moves on one screen out of our heads! Sigh, sweet dreams are made of late night talk show hosts. Keep reading »
