VIDEO: FULL FRONTAL's Samantha Bee Auditions For CATS!
TBS's Full Frontal host Samantha Bee admits on Wednesday night's show that she was surprised to see the trailer for the new CATS movie, because she sent in an audition tape.
Bee says that she is "a perfect fit for Cats the musical the movie." She goes on to say that she is a "mezzo soprano, 30 years of dance training...not what they teach you in school."
"There are so many horrors in this world right now it makes you ask the question, 'what is important?' and the answer is a movie about a bunch of trash cats competing for who gets to die," states Bee.
