WHEN:


Meet America’s Canadian sweetheart, the only female comic to host her own network late-night show. Bee, a Canadian who learned her craft as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, has become a sharp political commentator with a ribald voice that never loses its charm or its funny.

Bee will be in conversation with Shelley Correll, Professor of Sociology and Professor, by courtesy, of Organizational Behavior at Stanford's Graduate School of Business. Correll is also the Barbara D. Feinberg Director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research.

In the throes of the 2016 presidential election, Samantha Bee emerged as the clarion voice of American political satire. Her full-throated feminist take on the news and jokes-per-minute blitzkrieg style almost betray her polite Canadian roots. But as we look at exemplary artists among our neighbors to the north this season, she stands out to us as someone to offer some perspective about what makes America great.
