Samantha Bee Interview | Video

We Catch Up With The Daily Show's Queen Samantha Bee

Ever wonder if the people Samantha Bee interviews on The Daily Show knows she's joking? Just watch our interview with the show's "Most Senior Correspondent" to find out. Samantha, who is busy on the show, raising three kids, and now working with Dove's Close the Case on Care campaign, covered a whole range of topics, including what it's like working with Jon Stewart, if she'd like to see more women in the Obama administration, and whether she feels she's doing a service to the country by shining a light on America's political absurdities.

When asked what it's like to work with her husband, Jason Jones, Samantha said she was especially proud of the work he did in Iran in 2009 and wished it would have received more attention — which it just might. Jon Stewart announced this week that he is taking a hiatus from his show to direct a movie about Maziar Bahari, a journalist who was interviewed for the The Daily Show in Iran and then subsequently jailed.
