Career

On The Daily Show, Bee has demonstrated an ability to coax people into caricaturing themselves — particularly in segments like "Kill Drill", on hunters and fossil-fuel executives claiming to be environmentalists; "They So Horny", on the dearth of Asian men in U.S. pornography; "Tropical Repression", on Ed Heeney, a Florida politician running his campaign based on opposition to gays and lesbians; "The Undecided", an over-the-top look at the infamous undecided voters leading up to the 2004 U.S. presidential elections; and "Samantha Bee's So You Want To Be A..." report series, which humorously caricatures the way in which one can easily obtain a certain job, like becoming a 527 group.

Bee in popular culture

In December 2005, on The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly used a clip of Bee from The Daily Show as an example of "The War on Christmas," presenting it as having aired recently. The clip (a parody community events calendar) featured Bee mentioning how Christmas was the only religious holiday that's also a federal holiday in the United States, with O'Reilly quipping about "Secular Central...excuse me, Comedy Central". Jon Stewart discussed this on the air, claiming he couldn't recall doing that piece. Jon invited Bee out, and unlike the clip aired on Factor, Bee was visibly several months pregnant. Bee joked you could tell the footage O'Reilly aired was a year old (it originally aired in 2004) because she had slightly different highlights in her hair.
