Samantha Bee is really raking ‘em in this fall.

The Canadian comedic actress will be honoured this December with the 2011 Crystal Award for International Achievement by the Toronto chapter of Women in Film and Television.

The nod comes on the heels of Bee’s being named Comedy Person of the Year at the 2011 Canadian Comedy Awards in October.

The actress is best known as the Most Senior Correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. This fall, she’s also had a recurring role on HBO’s Bored to Death alongside Jason Schwartzman and Zach Galifianakis.

The International Achievement Award is presented annually to a Canadian woman with an outstanding body of work in screen-based media.

The Crystal Awards take place Dec. 5 at The Ritz Carleton in Toronto.
