“We needed a correspondent. We looked in all the usual places: your liquor stores, your betting parlors, your methadone clinics,” Stewart said. “Obviously Google Maps was in its nascent stages. We took a wrong turn. We ended up in Canada and we found this just delightful, incredibly funny person, Sam Bee.”
Stewart then played a collection of some of Bee’s best segments from her almost 12 years on the show. She covered the Republican National Convention in 2004, asking one delegate, “Have you had a hot Carl since you’ve been here?”
Bee also did a story about Medicare coverage for certain sexual devices. During the segment from March 2014, Bee managed to get one a penis pump stuck on her cheek.
“Some ‘Daily Show’ trivia,” Stewart said. “Of all our correspondents, Sam is only the third correspondent to ever get her face stuck in a penis pump.”
Stewart ended the segment by bringing a tearful Bee out onto the stage. Though hard to hear, he seems to tell her, “You’re the best.”
Bee and her husband have another upcoming TBS project, a family comedy starring Jones that will debut in the fourth quarter of this year. That 10-episode order also stars Natalie Zea (“Justified”), Ashley Gerasimovich (“Louie”) and Liam Carroll (“The Neighbors”).
