Parents Need to Know

Like most talk shows, it has some sexual innuendo and crude references, but interviews often go deeper, addressing issues like racism and racial violence, and sexuality.

Is It Any Good?

The best part of the show are the bits that feature Singh playing different characters, which underscores her dramatic talent. There's a lot packed into each 30-minute episode, so if you like late-night fare, A Little Late with Lilly Singh might just offer you enough entertaining moments to keep you awake.
