Her main channel, IISuperwomanII — a moniker she frequently uses online — has over 2 billion views and over 12 million subscribers; her second channel, SuperwomanVlogs, has over 2.2 million subscribers. She began hosting the late-night talk show A Little Late with Lilly Singh in 2019.

Early Life

Lilly Saini Singh was born on September 26, 1988, in Scarborough, Toronto, and raised there. Her parents, Malwinder and Sukhwinder, who immigrated to Canada from the Punjab, gave her and her older sister, Tina, a traditional Sikh upbringing. Singh was an extrovert as a child, revealing in a 2016 interview with AOL that she “used to be that annoying kid at parties who would be at the center of a circle to get everyone’s attention.” She wanted to be a Power Ranger or a rapper when she was younger, but her parents encouraged her to pursue a psychology degree at Toronto’s York University with the goal of becoming a counselor.

YouTube: ‘IISuperwomanII’ vs. Depression

Singh began posting YouTube videos in 2010, while still a student, to combat depression brought on in part by her lack of interest in a traditional career.

“I was coming out of a really difficult time period, and I wanted a way to cheer myself up while also cheering other people up,” she told Buzzfeed. “From a business standpoint, when I discovered YouTube, I noticed that there were no South Asian females doing it, so I thought it was a fantastic opportunity,” she says. Her therapy became making other people laugh.

Her first video only received 70 views. Success has come gradually. “Every video and every tweet has been counted,” she told Marie Claire. “My ascent was slow. I took the stairs instead of the escalator.”

Singh has complete control over her output as a YouTuber. She creates, scripts, stars in, shoots, and edits all of her own comedy videos. Singh began to play multiple characters in full make-up and costume as her comic sketches grew in ambition. “How Girls Get Ready,” “Shit Punjabi Mothers Say,” and “The Difference Between Brown and White Girls” are among her most popular videos.

Singh’s parents wanted her to pursue a master’s degree after graduating from York University, but she persuaded them to let her put her studies on hold for a year to see if she could make a living from YouTube. “So I just really, really hustled that year,” Singh told AOL. She made as many videos as she could — and has never looked back; by 2013, she had amassed a sizable fan base comprised primarily of teenage girls of South Asian descent living in western countries such as the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. By 2014, she was working with other popular YouTubers like FouseyTube and Connor Franta. She relocated to Los Angeles the following year.

She emphasizes in interviews that her success has come at a cost. “When I was younger, I had this fairy tale that you could be a healthy, balanced person and still achieve your goals,” she told Vogue. “That was not always the case. On a typical day, I’ll spend 90% of my waking hours working on Superwoman. I’m a total workaholic. “Superwoman is my hobby.”

‘How to Be a Bawse: a Guide to Conquering Life’

In 2015, Singh turned her YouTube content into a stage act — a mix of singing, rapping, dancing, comedy, and motivational speeches aimed at a teen and pre-teen audience — and embarked on a 31-date world tour, visiting India, Australia, Dubai, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The following year, she released her first feature film, A Trip to Unicorn Island, a behind-the-scenes documentary of the tour, on the subscription-only YouTube Red channel. She also made appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and The Today Show in 2016.

Her first book, How to Be a Bawse: a Guide to Conquering Life, was a New York Times bestseller when it was released in March 2017. According to Marie Claire magazine, “Bawse” is “like a boss, but so epic I had to change the spelling.” “It’s someone who exudes confidence, turns heads, effectively communicates, and hustles relentlessly.”

Singh has also made a name for himself in Hollywood, voicing the unicorns Misty and Bubbles in Ice Age: Collision Course and appearing in Bad Moms alongside Mila Kunis and Jada Pinkett Smith.

In HBO’s adaptation of Fahrenheit 451, she played Raven, a tabloid blogger.

Singh was ranked first in the entertainment category on Forbes magazine’s 2017 Top Influencers List. She was named UNICEF’s Global Goodwill Ambassador in July of that year. Michelle Obama has endorsed her #GirlLove social-media initiative to end girl-on-girl violence.

‘A Little Late with Lilly Singh’

She began hosting the late-night talk show A Little Late with Lilly Singh in 2019. The show was renewed for a second season in May 2020.
