                            'A Little Late with Lilly Singh': Release date, format, host, trailer, news and everything else about the Canadian comedian's talk show

Lilly Singh, Canadian comedian, YouTube star, television host and actress, best known by her stage name IISuperwomanII is making history as the first and to date the only bisexual woman of color – or woman, period - on late-night network television.  

The 30-year-old with a YouTube subscriber base of over 14 million, started off on the social media network by posting satirical short videos about her personal life, which is enriched by Punjabi culture, being an immigrant and a woman, primarily to combat depression and other mental health issues. However, people all over the world started relating to her content, and she started looking to YouTube for her full-time revenue, eventually making better-produced videos with the help of her team, and they range from parody music videos, vlogs, and sketches, for which she often collaborated with other YouTubers and celebrities from traditional media like tv shows and movies.  

Release date: 

‘Little Late with Lilly Singh’ is scheduled to premiere on NBC on September 16, 2019.  



 

Format:

‘Little Late with Lilly Singh’ is replacing ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’ and it almost certain that she will not try to emulate her predecessor’s work, considering the new host’s penchant for being unique. Like most talk shows we will definitely see Singh delivering monologues about current topics before interacting with celebrity guests and engaging in fun activities with them. 

However, if she will lean more towards politics and the state of the country like Seth Meyers, whose ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ would right before ‘Little Late,’ or more towards fun and games like Jimmy Fallon, whose ‘Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ airs before ‘Late Night,’ or somewhere in between remains to be seen.  

Host:

Singh, whose fandom is as big as the population of a small country, will have a lot of eyes watching her when she takes off as the host of ‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh.’ She is shattering the glass ceiling for many immigrants, people of color, queer people and women by becoming joining the boys’ club that is late-night TV. 

While announcing the show on 'Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon'’ in March, Singh had said, “an Indian-Canadian woman with her own late-night show? Now that is a dream come true. I’m thrilled to bring it to life on NBC, and I hope my parents consider this to be as exciting as a grandchild.” 



 

Showrunners/writers:

Executive produced by Singh and her business partner Polly Auritt, who is also the head of development for Singh's studio Unicorn Island Productions, 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh,' features a writers' room that has a ratio that favors women and people of color. The writing staff includes Marina Cockenberg, who has worked on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', Jen Burton, who wrote for 'Alternatino with Arturo Castro,' a sketch-show about the life of a millennial Latino, and Atlanta-based comedian Jonathan Giles.

Where to watch:

After the show premieres on September 16, you can watch 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh' during 1:35 a.m. ET/PT time slot every weekday. 

News:

A primetime special for the show, 'A Little Late with Lilly Singh: The Primetime Special', will be broadcast by the NBC two days after the show's premiere. According to Deadline, the special will air September 18 after the two-hour finale of 'America’s Got Talent'. Singh will be interacting with audience members and looking to engage fans with plenty of sketches, games and interviews during the hour-long special.
