Lilly Singh Gets New Primetime Sketch Comedy Series at NBC!

Lilly Singh will be starring in a brand new two-part sketch series for NBC!

The YouTuber turned late night host’s new sketch comedy show, Sketchy Times with Lilly Singh, will be much like some of her YouTube videos, where she plays all of the characters in sketches.

Lilly will produce and film the episodes from home, with safety protocols in place and minimal crew.

“Ten years ago I started playing every character in my sketches because my friends were all ‘stop annoying us to be a part of your skits,’” Lilly said in a statement, via Variety. “With ‘Sketchy Times,’ I’m going to play every character because me, myself and I have been training for this moment.”

Each episode will feature a theme and even include some musical parodies as well, with the potential for more if the first two perform well.

“I’ve been preparing for this moment for the past ten years. This is the first step. Two-part series with @nbc and we’re talking Primetime baby! Produced by my company @unicornislandprod!” Lilly excitedly shared on Instagram.

“#SketchyTimes with Lilly Singh is my new sketch comedy show where I play every character. I’m very grateful to be able to create in.. well, some sketchy times. I think we all need a little laughter this year. 😊 And of course, as always, infinitely grateful to all of you for the support. Everyone I work with says the same thing: “your fans are incredible” and sis, I been knew. Let’s do this 💪🏽 #TeamSuperAllDay,” she added.

Earlier this year, it was announced that Lilly‘s late night NBC talk show, A Little Late With Lilly Singh, was renewed for a second season!
