The Indians are making a name for themselves in different parts of the world and the latest is the YouTube and social media star Lilly Singh, who has been tapped to host her own late-night TV show, which will make her the first woman of Indian origin to get such a high-profile gig.
The Indian-Canadian comedian will be taking over Carson Daly’s 1:30 am a slot on NBC, making her one of the very few women hosts of a late-night talk show on a broadcast network, a coterie which includes Samantha Bee and Busy Philipps.
It’s official. Ya girl is getting her own @nbc late night show… A Little Late with Lilly Singh. Thank you so much for being here. I am truly so grateful. ❤️

Singh made the official announcement while appearing on another late night show, specifically The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
The show, called A Little Late with Lilly Singh, will see her hold celebrity interviews, as well as feature pre-taped comedy skits, and other “signature elements”. The show will begin airing from September of this year.
