Ashley Nicole Black, Senior Writer and Correspondent

Dec 12 2015

Ashley Nicole Black is a senior writer and correspondent on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. She dropped out of a PhD program at Northwestern University to study comedy at The Second City. Thank God it worked out.

In 2017, Ashley took home an Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Special for Full Frontal With Samantha Bee Presents Not The White House Correspondents’ Dinner. She also had the distinction of serving as Grand Marshal for Full Frontal's First Annual Halloween Office Dog Parade, featuring exactly two dogs.

In 2016, she met Cory Booker and it was the only good thing that happened that year.
