Samantha Bee Sets Out for March For Our Lives With 'Full Frontal' Tour Bus
Samantha Bee is taking another field trip, this time to Washington, D.C., to go make signs with teens attending the "March for Our Lives" event on Saturday.
On Wednesday TBS' Full Frontal host announced that her show was re-purposing the bus that it had used to travel to the Women's March in 2017 to attend the Saturday event in the U.S. capital. in a video promotion for the bus. "Please stop by our bus and say hi."
Bee promised a sign-making station and free cell phone chargers on the bus "so that your phones have enough juice to lead a movement." The host then joked, "Feel free to take whatever we left on the bus when we went to the Women's March: lightly used pussy hats, old pizza, two writers, take it." The host then asked teens to promise not to tell their parents that she had used the word "pussy."
Bee is only the latest late-night host to announce her plans to attend the anti-gun violence march on Saturday. Jimmy Fallon has announced that he and his family will be traveling to D.C. for the main event; The Opposition With Jordan Klepper will be airing a special episode from Rockville, Md. on the Thursday prior to the event and the second-season debut of The Jim Jefferies Show on Tuesday will feature in-the-field footage from the March for Our Lives in San Diego.
March for Our Lives events will be occurring in 847 places worldwide on Saturday, according to the march's official website, including in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. In addition to attending the March for Our Lives this month, on March 28 Bee will air a special filmed in Puerto Rico, prompted by the U.S. government's response to Hurricane Maria's effect on the U.S. territory.
