Save for the unfortunate cancellation of Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj, the rest of late night has gotten back to some semblance of production. A number of late night hosts have even ventured back into studio or will do so soon.
Well, actually, A Little Late with Lilly Singh has yet to do a remote version of her show on a regular basis like her other late night counterparts. Instead, she has just gotten the go-ahead over at NBC to do a two-part sketch special Sketchy Times with Lilly Singh where she will play every character and will be shot entirely at her home. Writers Sean O’Connor and Keisha Zollar will help Singh write these sketches and make for another intriguing foray into attempting to make comedy television during this pandemic.
Having Singh play every character is a clever workaround for social distancing purposes and will be the latest big time sketch comedy produced during this pandemic since the end of last season’s Saturday Night Live. To see what Singh attempts and subsequently pulls off from making an entire sketch comedy special from her home has us very intrigued.
There’s no premiere date as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted here at TCB.
