Samantha Bee brought Full Frontal home during the coronavirus pandemic, filming a new episode of the late night show in the forest behind her house.
“I’m in the woods right now, both metaphorically and literally,” said Bee to open the show. “To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, I am now filming the series with a minimal and reliable team of my husband and forest creatures.”
“As surreal as it sounds, the coronavirus pandemic has changed the way most of us live our lives,” said Bee. “With millions of people isolated and hundreds of thousands infected, now is the time to put our differences aside and come together.” She added, showing a clip of spring breakers in Florida, “Well, don’t meet like these idiots.”
Bee also discussed the impact on people’s economy and jobs, the cancellation of concerts and music festivals, and the shortage of COVID-19 tests. “I don’t know if you’ve heard of it, but these tests are quite difficult to obtain at the moment,” she said. “You have to be like 25% famous to get tested. It’s the new Twitter check. “
In the episode, Bee also interviewed an emergency surgeon about what it’s like to be on the frontline of the coronavirus pandemic and broadcast a segment with correspondent Amy Hoggart where she interviewed a fur group at a convention earlier this year.
