"I would just like to add to the numbers and be there with all those great women. Add my little voice to the voices."

Samantha Bee doesn't want microphones or cameras--just a large bus (with her face on it) and her staff to add their voices to the Women's March on Washington this weekend. But it's not for Bee's TV show, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.

"I just want to enjoy the moment and be present," Bee during told Vulture. "I would just like to add to the numbers and be there with all those great women. Add my little voice to the voices."

Often called the "Only Woman in Late Night Television," Bee's voice is anything but "little." We'll never forget her scathing post-election recap, "The Morning After," where she speaks out against white women--a demographic that let her down this past presidential election.

In 2017, however, she's aiming for optimism: "Well, you have to accept it--it's reality," she told Vulture. "It's 2017. I'm just trying to look forward. Like, what's done is done. We can build on this. Actually, there's a small part of me germinating that's getting excited by how civic-minded I feel people are becoming. I actually do feel in some small way that people are waking up a little bit, and this could represent a really special and exciting time."

She continued: "We do need to think about where we can find moments of joy. You're trying to look for the things and the opportunities to do something that is silly. You try to look for something silly to hang on to, so you can have moments of lightness. It can't all be darkness."
