Lilly Singh (born 26 September ) is a Canadian actress, comedian and YouTube personality widely known as IISuperwomanII. Since beginning her.
She shared the clip on Facebook and watched it rack up 70 views. She believes in God, but adheres to no formal religion.
As she got more comfortable in front of the camera, she set about establishing her brand of self-deprecating observational comedy, which at first catered specifically to second-generation South Asian teens.
In between shooting skits and working a series of dead-end jobs, she learned how to light her videos, what kind of camera equipment to use, how to make graphics and sound effects—and she found most of this on YouTube how-to channels.
Within six months, she had more than a thousand subscribers.
Gradually, her funk lifted. BySingh had amassed several thousand subscribers, and other YouTubers took notice. A creator named Allen Buckle, who went by Fluffee Talks, reached out to Singh and asked her to meet at his home.
Buckle was a year-old comedian from Toronto who wore a black beanie and aggregated bizarro news stories from around the globe. At the time, he had aboutsubscribers.
She sat in his living room and sipped a glass of water. Sukhwinder struck a deal: Singh readily agreed and got to work formalizing her brand. She committed to a regular posting schedule and bought her first professional camera: Her popularity was spreading rapidly throughout the South Asian community.

Advertisers would negotiate with YouTube, then YouTube would typically take 45 per cent of the ad revenue and let creators pocket the rest. At first, the company selected which users would be able to monetize their accounts. Most people had to wait months or years before they were chosen, but Singh got an email from the YouTube brass after she posted her third video, a guide to help brown guys decode the behaviour of brown girls.
InYouTube enabled any user to activate advertising. Since then, the number of ad-supported YouTube channels has ballooned from roughly 10, to more than three million.
Advertisers pay a set rate for every thousand views. Seismic success is exceedingly rare. Many users—the hobbyists, whose views are in the thousands rather than the millions—might only earn a few hundred dollars a year. Most of them will never make a living off of YouTube, let alone experience the gilded life of Lilly Singh. Advertisers have figured out that online video is one of the best ways to tap into a younger demographic.
And while digital competitors like Facebook Live, Snapchat and Instagram are catching up, YouTube continues to dominate. Photograph by Getty Images The vast untapped revenue potential has spawned a cottage industry of YouTube professionals.
There are analysts, like Ching and her team at OpenSlate, who crunch YouTube viewership data to advise brands on where their money is best spent.
YouTube talent scouts watch hours of video per day, investigating which incipient stars are getting the most likes and comments, and grappling with other companies to see who can sign them first. Sarah Weichel, an independent manager who represents Singh and several varsity-level YouTubers, wanted to work with musicians when she came to Hollywood five years ago. Since then, The Collective shut down their music-management arm entirely to focus on digital talent.
A phalanx of digital ad sales firms have emerged to help brands maximize their reach. A firm that manages 2, channels amasses billions of views every month, which is a considerable bargaining chip when negotiating with brands. Many of these companies also negotiate sponsorship deals and branded video collaborations on top of the pre-roll advertising. Singh has always had a meticulous vision for her YouTube channel.
Inside the dizzying world of Lilly Singh, Toronto's accidental megastar
She spent years poring over analytics, figuring out which posts were going viral and which ones were flopping. She read every comment to see what fans were responding to.

Singh signed with Sarah Weichel at The Collective when the company was transitioning from a management agency to an ad sales firm.
Lilly Singh Goes to Hollywood
It was her first time overseas. Singh thought it was a prank. Every day, hundreds of fans line up at the gates, hoping to spot Khan, who often waves from the balcony like the queen. But it turned out to be his year-old daughter screaming for her.
Before Singh left Mannat, Khan gave her one of his monogrammed blazers. Khan made an appearance there, too. While he was revving up the crowd, Singh walked onstage behind him, and the audience lost it. As she realized how diverse her followers were, she began to distance herself from the South Asian—specific humour, focusing instead on issues that affect all teens.
We all fight with our parents. We all have relationships that fail. She dreamed of a Broadway-calibre spectacle, with elaborate costume changes, video projections and bhangra dancers.Stages of a Break Up
It would be a high-octane variety show, with Singh rapping, dancing and doing sketch comedy. Weichel shopped the tour to dozens of promoters, but none of them wanted to substantially invest. Then she realized that Singh could finance the tour the same way she did everything else: She and Singh conceived of a backstage documentary chronicling the creation of the tour.

When Singh toured Asia, Australia and Europe later that year, she sold out most of her dates. She has teamed up with Coca-Cola, creating promotional content on her channel.
