Samantha Bee Reacts to Vanity Fair's All-Male Comedy Cover
TV

The comedienne who will debut her new show 'Full Frontal' on TBS adds her own picture to the VF cover with an extra funny twist.

AceShowbiz - %cSamantha Bee% has a hilarious response to Vanity Fair which put only male comedians on the cover for their center piece "Why Late-Night Television Is Better than Ever" in the magazine's newest issue. The funnywoman takes matters into her own hands by photoshopping a picture of her shooting fire from her eyes on to the cover.

Bee says that the all-male cover was "good," but the new picture with her on it was "better." %cStephen Colbert%, %cConan O'Brien%, %cTrevor Noah%, %cJames Corden%, %cJimmy Kimmel%, %cJohn Oliver%, %cSeth Meyers%, %cLarry Wilmore%, %cJimmy Fallon%, and %cBill Maher% are featured in the photo that stirred debate.

"What's conspicuously missing from late-night, still, is women," David Kamp wrote the accompanying article. "How gobsmackingly insane is it that no TV network has had the common sense - and that's all we're talking about in 2015, not courage, bravery, or even decency - to hand over the reins of an existing late-night comedy program to a female person?"

Kamp noted female talents like %cChelsea Peretti%, %cMegan Amram%, and %cJen Kirkman%. The writer also mentioned that Bee had a new show "Full Frontal" on TBS and %cChelsea Handler% had her own on Netflix. He wrote, "Two female hosts plus the 10 men featured here is still a long way from a late-night that truly looks like America. But the next version of this story's opening picture will be that much brighter."
