Throughout their 17 years of journey, Bee and Jones also worked together several times and supported each other in their professional work as well. Talking about their work experience together, the 48-year-old Full Frontal with Samantha Bee host said:

"Actually, we kind of like working together because it's really the only time that we're together without the baby, although we do have the baby here today, so I shouldn't say that. So, needless to say, there's a lot of making whoopee at work. We like to christen every room. Everyone just gets out of our way. They part like the Red Sea when they see us coming."

They both worked as a correspondent for the late-night talk The Daily Show. But they both quit the show in 2015 to create their own series. The couple together created a television series The Detour which premiered on TBS on April 11, 2016. Her husband, Jones starred in the series alongside Natalie Zea and Ashley Gerasimovich. 

Bee also performed in the series and here is  what her husband said in an interview about she being a part of the show:

"I’m so proud of her, she’s doing such a great job on the show. And she’s really enjoying it too, which is the best scenario,"

In another interview Jones said:

"It always amazes me that she did what she did for 12 years, which isn’t too dissimilar to what she’s doing now, and received basically no attention. And now, people can’t get enough."

Bee is indeed lucky to be blessed with such a supportive husband and beautiful family. The family of five currently reside in their house in Manhattan, New York.
