Clever, clever, that Samantha Bee.

By way of teasing her entrée into the late-night TV scene, the “Daily Show” alum turned TBS anchor let fly with this grabby promo, in which she slyly flips the script on the typical objectification scenario — e.g., men ogling women, reducing them to their bathing-suit parts.

She also gets in some good zingers about her all-male cohort of current hosts, like Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and John Oliver, whom her costar in the spot saucily describes as an “English banger.”

No start date has been announced for Bee’s debut on the cable network, but this audacious little number bodes well for her solo act. Have a look below.
