1. Is there anything this Scarborough, Ontario born and raised woman can not do? Lilly Singh, who is now 30 and from a traditional Punjabi family, was leading a fairly ordinary life, until in October 2010, she started a YouTube channel under the pseudonym "IISuperwomanII". She has explained that the name Superwoman was prompted by a childhood idea that she had an invisible "S" on her chest, making her believe she can do anything. Punjabi culture is frequently portrayed in her videos, which also contain satirical takes on everyday life and people's favorite complaints. Now, only 8 years later, she has just been announced to replace Carson Daly as the host of NBC's 1:35 a.m. talk show. The retitled "A Little Late with Lilly Singh" will launch in September, and as noted by NBC, will make her the only female to currently host a late-night talk show on one of the Big 4 networks.
