Samantha Bee's show tonight will tackle the challenges of gun violence
Will the OT watch?

quote:

Samantha Bee is getting ready to tackle one of modern culture’s most serious topics — with comedy.

On Wednesday, her “Full Frontal” program on TBS will focus entirely on the challenges of gun violence in America. “Full Frontal Wants To Take Your Guns” will air Wed. May 12 at 10:30 p.m. eastern. The opening segment will feature appearances by Regina King, Ilana Glazer and Representative Gabrielle Gifford, among others.

The comedian believes the program will help make a daunting problem seem like something that anyone can try to fight. “It’s completely overwhelming. “The moment you start down one avenue to talk about guns, you’re talking about ten different problems A lot of them seem completely intractable,” says Bee during a short interview Monday. “It’s like contemplating the cosmos.”

But her effort will be a lot more humorous than that sort of endeavor. “I will say this: We somehow have taken this very difficult, horrific issue and made a half hour TV show that is really extremely funny and doesn’t feel completely tragic from end to end,” says Bee. “This is a very, very funny special and I think that comes from a place where we feel really overwhelmed.”

“Full Frontal” typically addresses several topics across its thirty-minute running time, but on occasion the show will delve into something the staff finds impossible to ignore. “Every once in a while, an issue will emerge that requires us to dive a little more deeply,” says Bee. “We don’t have that much TV real estate, so we like to use it as judiciously as possible. This felt like a really smart use of our time.”

This show still exists?

Goes to show you that there's always a market for dumbasses that watch trash.

Crazy how if you take out suicides the problem completely changes, but no one wants to address what it really is.

No. She would have to be funny for it to be comedy.

I can't even get through one of her commercials without changing the channel. I can't imagine sitting through an entire episode.

re: Samantha Bee's show tonight will tackle the challenges of gun violence
Samantha bee is EXACTLY the type of person Thomas sowell refers to in his magnificent magnum opus “the vision of the anointed”

Samantha bee does not argue in good faith. Her show starts off with the premise that the side she opposes is on a lower moral plane than her side. She doesn’t believe in conversation. She believes in laughing at what others have to say who don’t think like she does

Comedy and politics should never mix.

She's providing great evidence of why women are too emotional for politics.

I really miss the time when comedians actually performed comedy instead of being political-advocates

I see commercials for her show, which is why I've never watched it.

She seems irritating and void of humor.

re: Samantha Bee's show tonight will tackle the challenges of gun violence
yeahhhhh, gonna pass on this one

It didn't show up as much on the Daily Show but her humor is just painfully unfunny to me
