This Is Why Samantha Bee’s Upcoming Late Night Show Isn’t Actually Star Wars Themed


Samantha Bee — who just released a new promo for her upcoming TBS late night talk show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee — is, as seen in said promo, not particularly adept with a lightsaber.

(Though some diehard Star Wars fans would be quick to point out that the weapon she carries isn’t a real lightsaber, and perhaps she’d have been better off — as in, less of an accidental mass murderer — if she’d budgeted for more than a cheap knockoff.)

In the video, she’s surrounded by a hip, interplanetary crowd at a bar — which she suddenly begins destroying as she innocently tries to promote her television show. “I just want to do a comedy show, I don’t want to be a destroyer of worlds,” she whimpers.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will begin on February 16 on TBS — at which point people will surely still be talking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Watch the promo:
