Samantha Ruddy tells jokes, writes funny stuff, and has strong opinions on Mountain Dew iterations.

Until the show's cancellation in July of 2022, Samantha was a full-time digital producer and copywriter at Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Samantha's work at Full Frontal included writing straight to camera promos for Sam Bee, crafting funny copy for the show's social media accounts, and contributing to scripts for web series including the Emmy Award-nominated Beeing At Home.

Samantha has performed standup on both The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. She's also been heard on NPR and appeared in videos for Comedy Central and Marvel. She has performed at comedy festivals like New York Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, and Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Her debut comedy album, Logging Out, was named one of the best comedy albums of 2020 by NPR and is the reason Paste Magazine referred to her as a "joke machine."

Samantha is a skilled joke writer and her comedy is clever, disarming, and sly. Her writing can be read on Collegehumor, The Cut, and Reductress. She's been nominated for both Shorty and Queerty awards for her online presence. Follow her on Twitter @Samlymatters. You'll be glad you did. And she will too!
