Lilly Singh, who became a social media star with her YouTube videos, has been killin’ it on the internet since 2010, and there’s no stopping her. She has a book to her name – How to be a Bawse: A Guide to Conquering Life – and has been garnering positive reviews from around the globe. The Indian–Canadian influencer's impressions of her Punjabi parents have touched a chord with Indian as well as international audience.
Now our Superwoman is getting a talk show of her own! She is the first Indian woman to host a late-night show and her career graph is something that we all need to celebrate, as women and as Indians.
Lilly took to her Instagram and wrote, "Something BIG is coming. With the grace of god and support from my dog, I’m making the biggest announcement of my career tonight on @fallontonight with @jimmyfallon. I’m so nervous and excited. Ah ah ah!!!!! Stay tuned 🙏🏽❤️
Lilly will be the new queen of late-night comedy with her show A Little Late with Lilly Singh that will premier on NBC. She made the announcement on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon in a truly Superwoman fashion and shared the big news with all her 8.3 million Instagram followers with a kick-ass caption: "I can’t even believe I am writing this caption... What is happening? I NEED TO SIT DOWN... I’m THRILLED to announce that ya girl is getting her own @nbc late night show! And not only did I get to announce this dream come true on @fallontonight but @sethmeyers came out and surprised me as well! I’m so grateful and overwhelmed to be joining this incredible family... This has been SO long in the making and I’m so happy I can finally share this with you. Thank you, thank you, thank you... It’s time to make magic. It’s time to hustle harder than ever before. Blessings 🙏🏽"
We can't wait for her to tickle our funny bones with this new show. She got candid on Jimmy Fallon's show about her achievements, and at the same time generously expressed her gratitude to all her fellow comediennes: "A huge shout out to all the women who have been before me and are currently are in this space. Couldn't have done it without them paving the path..."
Lilly’s show will include comedy segments and she will also be interviewing guests. When Jimmy asked what the show was going to be like, Lilly said, "Kind of like my YouTube channel but now I will have more than three staff members." With her new show, Lilly Singh will be replacing Last Call host and former MTV VJ Carson Daly, who will be stepping down after 17 seasons. Her show is set to launch in September and will be executively produced by Singh herself, making her the only female to currently host a late-night talk show on one of the four big networks in the US. Wuhoo! How great is that?
A few weeks ago, our very own Superwoman took to her Instagram and came out as a bisexual, eliciting a warm wave of love and approval on social media. She wrote, "✅ Female ✅ Coloured ✅ Bisexual •••
Throughout my life these have proven to be obstacles from time to time. But now I’m fully embracing them as my superpowers. No matter how many “boxes” you check, I encourage you to do the same x ❤️💚💙"
One of the most successful YouTube stars, Lilly Singh has over 14 million subscribers on her channel, which she started in 2010. She has also appeared in films such as Gulaab Gang, Dr. Cabbie, F The Prom and Bad Moms.
