This lady is cuh-RA-zee! lol But in the best way and I love her.
Samantha Bee's first book, i know i am, but what are you?, is a twistedly funny memoir. It has the kind of half embarrassing and half hysterical stories that we tend to laugh like crazy over with family and close friends, but when asked by an outsider "what's so funny?", you reply "nothing" and keep it as an inside joke. The great thing about really funny comics like Samantha is that she shares these anecdotes, and  you just can't help but laugh harder for it. One of my favorites when she talks about her mom's visit with her to Woodstock. I won't ruin the story but dang that made me laugh :D

You can check out Samantha Bee on Comedy Central's The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (Monday through Thursday nights at 11pm/10c) where she holds the title of Most Senior Correspondent after having systematically eliminating all those before her.
