Late Night Girls Club: Samantha Bee & Amber Ruffin

Mar 19, 2021

12:00pm – 1:00pm CT

Samantha Bee (host and executive producer of the WGA nominated, Emmy Award-winning show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”) in conversation with Amber Ruffin (writer, executive producer and host of WGA Award-nominated series “The Amber Ruffin Show”). The two will discuss the trials and tribulations of covering politics in today’s unpredictable climate from a unique, comedic point of view. As the longest running correspondent on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” Bee eventually went out on her own in 2016 with “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.” The show continues to use political satire to entertain, educate, and empower viewers while keeping the government in check. Ruffin is also an Emmy and WGA Award-nominated writer and performer for “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” and was the first African American female to write for a late-night network talk show in the U.S.
