Salon Talks: Cast of Samantha Bee


Correspondents from the Emmy Award-winning political satire show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” open up to Salon about writing comedy in the Trump era. “It’s still a massive challenge,” Amy Hoggart said. “Often the stories are so horrific it’s harder to get jokes, but it’s never impossible.”

Writer and correspondent Ashley Nicole Black added, “There is no groove with this president. We can rewrite a show three times because oh he fired the Secretary of State, oh this happened, oh now Jared said this. The groove is over for comedians.”

Watch the interview above to learn more about the making of the show and a special episode of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” where the group travels to Puerto Rico. Tune in for SalonTV's live shows, "Salon Talks" and "Salon Stage", daily at noon ET / 9 a.m. PT and 4 p.m. ET / 1 p.m. PT, streaming live on Salon, Facebook and Periscope.
