Lilly Singh spe­cial planned


A two-part prime-time spe­cial star­ring Lilly Singh will air on NBC and Global. Sketchy Times With Lilly Singh will see the Toronto-born co­me­dian per­form a range of sketches — a nod to her early work on YouTube, Dead­line re­ports. Singh plays ev­ery char­ac­ter in the sketches, which will sat­i­rize how we're ad­just­ing to the new nor­mal un­der COVID-19 and fea­ture mu­si­cal par­o­dies. It will be shot at Singh's home with min­i­mal crew and proper safety pro­to­cols en­forced. “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,'” Singh said. “With Sketchy Times, I'm go­ing to play ev­ery char­ac­ter be­cause me, my­self and I have been train­ing for this moment.” Singh cur­rently hosts the late-night show A Lit­tle Late with Lilly Singh. An air­date for the spe­cial has yet to be set.
