Is It Any Good?

Kids say (3 ):

Creative, witty and hilariously relatable, this channel is a breath of fresh air on a platform saturated with gaming videos and make-up tutorials. Lilly Singh sees the world and makes fun of it through her videos on her long-running YouTube channel that launched her into comedic fame. Much like the sketch comedy duo Key & Peele, Lilly's skits take aim at racism, stereotypes and misogyny, but through the lens and experience of a Desi woman, which makes her channel all the more unique and important. It's clear from her content that Lilly has used, and continues to use, comedy as a way to cope and process challenges and struggles in life. Her openness about her experience with depression and living up to the expectations of others may be relatable to teen fans and her ability to express herself through comedy offers inspiration to viewers looking for their own outlet of expression.

Like most comedians, Lilly sometimes uses edgy humor that includes sexual innuendos, jokes about sex and body parts, references to drinking, and light swearing (she strays away from harsher four-letter words). But Lilly is careful to never be too edgy as to alienate her teen fandom that spends a good amount of time on YouTube. For parents worried about more crude humor, there are videos that are more on the clean side, like music video parodies and silly skits with some of their favorite celebrities. This channel also offers content both teens and adults will love, opening the door to bond through talking about the videos they watch together.
