When Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, Samantha Bee was one of the top choices to carry on the show’s tradition of political satire. Not, of course, for Comedy Central, who went with questionable tweeter Trevor Noah. But Bee has publicly admitted that she didn’t want the job and preferred to start something new that was her own.
And so we have Full Frontal. Like its host, FF is sharp and funny and unafraid. And while Noah is still figuring out how to run TDS, Bee has hit the ground running.
Now, in order to watch this show, you are also going to need to hit the ground running.
Episodes 1 – 9 have already aired in the US, so we’re going to start broadcasting from episode 10.
Luckily, those first nine episodes are available on SBS On Demand right now.
Starting from 26 April, new episodes will be fast tracked from the US at 8pm (AEST) on SBS 2. After they air, those episodes will be available on SBS On Demand.
In case you need more convincing, this is a list of the show’s greatest moments up to this point.
And while you’re having the time of your life, don’t forget who told you about it: The Guide.
