Born into a dysfunctional family, Samantha was raised by her grandmother, who was a secretary at the Catholic school which Samantha went to during her childhood. Samantha also attended Humberside Collegiate Institute and York Memorial Collegiate Institute. Following her high school matriculation, Samantha enrolled at McGill University to study humanities, however, she wasn’t satisfied with the program, and soon after transferred to the University of Ottawa. There, Samantha started taking theatre classes and found out that her calling was acting, and as a result attended the George Brown Theatre School in Toronto.

Working as an actress in her early 20s, Samantha began auditioning for roles in Toronto, and when aged 26 she became a part of the “Sailor Moon” stage production, playing the titular role. She also became one of the founding members of the comedy-sketch group The Atomic Fireballs, which also helped her hone her comedy and acting skills. Her luck changed in 2003, when she was chosen as the first female correspondent for “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”, and for the next 12 years Samantha built a name for herself as a comedian, and reporter, having various segments in the show, including “Kill Drill”, “Samantha Bee’s So You Want To Bee A…”, and “NILFs”, among others, adding considerably to her net worth.

Samantha’s first notable role was the lead in the comedy film “Ham & Cheese” in 2004, starring next to Mike Beaver and Jason Jones, and then three years later, after a few minor roles in TV series, Samantha featured in the comedy adventure film “Underdog”, starring Peter Dinklage, Jason Lee and Amy Adams, while two years later she appeared in the rather successful romantic comedy “Whatever Works”, directed and written by Woody Allen, while the lead roles were given to Evan Rachel Wood, Larry David and Henry Cavill. In 2012 Samantha appeared in the short-lived comedy “Good God” with Jason Weinberg, John Ralsto, and April Mullen among other stars, while in 2013 she gave her voice to Stacy, a character from the animated comedy series “Bounty Hunters”, which also features Jason Jones, Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy as the lead stars, and has also been the voice of Mom in the animated series “Creative Galaxy” (2013-2017), all of which added a significant amount to her net worth.

From 2015 to 2016, Samantha was Geri in the comedy series “Game On”, and since 2016, Samantha has been the host of her own satirical show “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”, for which she won a Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special in 2017. Most recently she has been working on the animated film “Elliot the Littlest Reindeer”, in which she will give her voice to Hazel.

Samantha is also an accomplished author; so far she has released three books, including “I Know I Am, But What Are You?” In 2010, “Cracking Up” (2016), and most recently “The Simple Vegan Recipe Book” (2017), the sales of which have only increased her net worth, while she also contributed to Jon Stewart’s book with other Daily Show writers, “America (The Book): A Citizen’s Guide to Democracy Inaction”, published back in 2004.

When it comes to her personal life, Samantha has been married to Jason Jones since 2001; the couple has three children together.

After living for years in the USA, Samantha became a naturalized citizen in 2014, and now holds dual citizenship, Canadian and American.

1[on the 2016 U.S. Election] It's still hard on my soul for me to take Donald Trump seriously.I don't think I'll ever get used to it. As much as I'm embracing the circus atmosphere because it will be entertaining, as a voter I would still hope that we get an actual good person in there.
2[on working with her husband Jason Jones on television productions] We met each other working in a children's-theatre troupe and have continued to work together for almost twenty years. He's good at pushing comedy beyond my comfort zone, and I'm good at reining him in. Having children helps because they do not care about our work at all.
3[on adjusting to life in New York:] My apartment is the equivalent of one room in my Toronto home. Now I understand why New Yorkers are on the streets at all hours. People don't want to stay inside for fear they'll go crazy. I've also found television remotes to be an afterthought here. I don't even have to get up from the couch to change channels.
