with Samantha Bee

Thursday, March 5, 2020
Sheraton Centre Toronto
11:30 am – 2:00 pm

She’s one of late night’s funniest voices! You don’t want to miss this rare opportunity to catch Canadian-born comedian SAMANTHA BEE in Toronto, while raising money to advance gender equality! Join us at The Exchange to have lunch and LOL with the Emmy-nominated host of Full Frontal.

Samantha says the things no one else does, because satire is her superpower. And there is much to be said and done when it comes to gender equality. Come see for yourself how she hovers fearlessly between comedy and activism!

You can be part of this unforgettable event if buy your tickets early! It’s also a great opportunity to network and share ideas on the roles we can play to advance gender equality in our own lives. Now is the time to spread the word, invite friends, partners, colleagues, mothers, and daughters … and get ready to be inspired!

Funds raised will go to the Canadian Women’s Foundation and support programs across the country that empower women and girls to move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence and leadership.


    Samantha Bee has quickly established herself as having one of the most unique and sharp comedic voices on television with her late-night show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

    Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Bee began her career performing as a member of the all-female sketch comedy troupe The Atomic Fireballs.

    In 2003, Bee joined Comedy Central’s The Daily Show. She departed The Daily Show in 2015 and holds the title for being the longest-serving regular Daily Show correspondent of all time (12 years).

    Since 2016, Bee has been receiving global recognition for her Emmy-nominated, late-night comedy series, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Full Frontal offers a unique satirical take on weekly news and explores other important stories that have been largely overlooked by more traditional media outlets.

    In a landscape of male late-night talk show hosts, critics have appreciated Bee’s “fiery and fierce” delivery (The New York Times) and have embraced Full Frontal as a “daring, innovative addition to the late-night slate” (Entertainment Weekly).  Full Frontal is in its third season.

    In 2018, Bee launched a production company, Swimsuit Competition, co-founded with “Full Frontal” producer Kristen Everman. Swimsuit Competition aims to create inclusive, narrative and documentary television.
