The Daily Show's Samantha Bee Brutally Parodies Star Wars To Promote Her New Talk Show Full Frontal!

| Filed under: Jon StewartTV NewsFilm FlickersFunnyStar WarsLate Night TV

Finally, a woman in late night!

Samantha Bee first made a name for herself as a standout comedian on The Daily Show, but now she's about to get her very own talk show and we couldn't be more excited.

Not only is she going to be bringing a female voice to a male-dominated industry, but she'll also be representing her nerds proudly!

To prove her geek cred, Jon Stewart's former costar's latest promo calls upon a classic Star Wars scene at the cantina… but things don't go quite as planned since she's not entirely sure how to operate as a sith lord. LOLz!

If Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is as random yet topical as this commercial, then we're sure it's going to be a success when it premieres on TBS this February.

Ch-ch-check out Samantha's Star Wars parody (above)!!!

He wasn't gone for long, and he's already back!

It was the end of an era back in August when Jon Stewart left the Daily Show desk after serving as host for an astounding 16 years.

And while correspondent Trevor Noah has done a commendable job leading the Comedy Central late night series, we were still a little curious as to where Jon was going to end up.

Well, that question was finally cleared up for us on Tuesday when it was reported that the 52-year-old would be taking his talents to HBO for a four-year development deal!

Apparently, the comedian will start out by creating short format videos for the premium cable network's digital services, but this could transition further into potential television or movie opportunities, should he want to take on such a challenge.

Jon is one of the most awarded producers in sketch and satire of all time, so we're beyond confident that his work with HBO is going to turn out just as fantastic!

That's right, it was the premiere of The Daily Show with a new host, and Noah wasn't too shabby for his first night on the air!

Throughout the show he made several references to Stewart calling him "political dad," even joking:

"I can only assume this is as strange for you as it is for me… Dad has left. Now it feels like the family has a new stepdad. And he's black. Which is not ideal."

Check Out Noah's opening from last night (below) and let us know what you think of the new host!
