Lilly’s House Is a Playground

Lilly’s House Is a Playground


-So I was talking to
my parents recently. I know. And they were asking to come
visit me in L.A., okay? And I don’t know about you, but
that immediately gave me PTSD to when I use to
live at home, because, like, you know
when you lived at home, you got a ton of questions like,
“Lilly, did you eat today?” “No, Mom. I’m just withering
away from starvation.” Here’s another one. “Lilly, it’s 9:00 p.m.
Keep it down.” I couldn’t even sneeze
past 9:00. I mean, up until I was
25 years old, I had to ask my parents’
permission to paint my room, okay? And they always said “no.” That’s why, at 25, I moved out. Yes, I know what
you’re thinking — I lived at home until I was 25. And I know that probably
makes me sound like a socially weird nerd,
but I wasn’t, okay? I was a normal adult
who spent all my time making YouTube videos
by myself, thank you. [ Cheers and applause ] But, you know, to be honest,
it’s actually a little unusual for me to be living on my own. You see, usually
in Indian culture, you live at home
until you get married. It’s — Yeah, it’s
the ultimate escape room. Something I was always told when
I lived with my parents was, “When you have your own house,
you can do whatever you want.” All right? You know what I mean? So if I wanted to pierce my nose or get a puppy or get a tattoo, it was always, “When you have
your own house…” Well, guess what.
I got my own house. [ Cheers and applause ] Now my bra’s all weird. Great. When I was finally free of
my parents’ house rules, I went through a little bit of
a rebellious stage, if I am honest. Like, the day I moved into
my own place, I turned my stairs into a slide. And, one day, I thought
it would be so much fun to turn my hot tub
into a ball pit. Because what better
way to prove you’re an adult who can live alone than
turning your house into a literal playground? Am I right? Yeah. And spoiler alert —
the ball pit was a disaster. Absolute disaster. I mean, there are still
balls everywhere — on the roof, all over my yard. I’m finding balls in places where I didn’t even know
balls could fit. Okay? I once paid —
This is a true story. I once paid $1,000
to have my drain unclogged because there were balls
stuffed in it. Yeah. It’s the only time
I’ve paid someone to remove balls from my house. [ Cheers and applause ] But, aside from that,
I don’t pay for much, okay? Like cleaning.
I don’t make it easy on myself. I would rather hand-wash
200 dishes myself than use a dishwasher. Actually, I straight up
refuse my dishwasher, because, growing up,
the dishwasher was seen as something only
privileged people use, you know? My parents taught me that
the dishwasher is for one thing only —
storing bags of chips. Speaking of which,
living alone is the best way to remember every horror movie
you’ve ever seen. Am I right? Okay? I’m suddenly super-aware of
how many scenes start with a woman alone,
hand-washing dishes. and I am like… Despite all that, though,
I feel like I’m still way too trusting of strangers. Like, a murderer could
show up at my door holding a bloody knife,
but if he says he’s from Postmates and
it’s dinnertime, I am going to let him in. I like, “Yeah, come in. Just set the food down over
there by those zip ties. Yeah, sorry.” And I have a security system,
but here’s the thing — sometimes, I worry that
the serial killer outside my window — they
might not know that I have
a security system, okay? So I’ll just walk around to
different windows and pretend I’m typing into
keypads that don’t exist, okay? I straight up walk around my
house just like, “Beep-beep-ba-deep-beep-beep. Yeah. Oh, yeah,
this room is super-secure, just in case
you’re watching outside.” And the attachment I have to
everything in my house makes it so much more stressful
when people come over. Like, when my parents visit
and they criticize any aspect of my house, it’s
like they’re criticizing me. Last time they visited, I
literally yelled the words, “Stop! My house can hear you!” And then Alexa was like,
“Oh, I don’t mind.” Ultimately, I’m really glad
I got my own place, okay? And I just want to be
serious for a second. I think it’s so important to have some independence
as an adult. You know, I think like — parents, you need to
let your kids live alone, especially Indian parents, eh? I know some of you
have grown kids, and you’re like,
“Oh, well, my kids are useless.” You made us that way. Let your kids — Yes.
[ Cheers and applause ] Did you hear that? It’s every parent
scolding me right now. No. You’ve got to let kids
figure things out on their own. I mean, even if they
end up completely destroying their plumbing with
ball-pit balls, they’ll be fine. Okay? Because the truth is —
if you live with your parents until your wedding day
and then immediately move in with your spouse,
you’ll never get a chance to become your own person. But, also, maybe
you don’t even need a spouse. [ Cheers and applause ] Yeah. That’s what
all single people say. I remember my parents
always saying, “You can get a dog
when you get married.” And my only thought to that was,
“Why would I want two dogs?”

  1. These fake commentors, notice how they say on every video "thats so relatable", like just saying it over and over people will buy into this garbage. Laughable method for coaxing toddlers.

  2. I think hand washing dishes for do many years between moving out of my parent's house and finally having a house with a dishwasher actually made it harder for me to do dishes with a dishwasher.

    Because you get in the habit of leaving dishes in the sink instead of putting them in the dishwasher. I mean emptying the dishwasher isn't that big a deal. But a sink full of dishes triggers my depression and anxiety…. And when you're in the habit of leaving dishes in the sink you don't think to just empty the dishwasher do you can start loading it again.

    And now that the dishwasher is dead and we're too poor to replace it I've gotten into the habit of washing my dishes as I make them. So I'll wash the dishes from the previous meal before making the next. And wash the dishes from dinner before bed…. And if possible I'll wash the dishes I'm using to cook while cooking… So if I use the cutting board or some bowls and stuff for prepping food I'll wash them while stuff is cooking.

    That way I never leave dishes in the sink to pile up for days… The roommates however go the soak the dishes route and will let dishes pile up in one side of the sink for days… Which sometimes means most of the bowls, spoons and forks end up in the sink…. So I keep the spoons I like hidden in the basement…. Like the weirdo I truly am.

  3. Lilly!!! You gotta bring wynnona earp cast, i have the feel u will get along + talk about LGTBQ+ community representacion on tv in a talk show would be funny and dope. Only hope for NO GUNS allowed on the room, just safety for the gays 😉

  4. When you can actually relate to everything Lilly mentioned in her monologue. Dang, I never really realized how amazing it feels to have my normal experiences represented on a show.

  5. Lilly You are so relate-able about having your own place.. .parents should let their Kids experience living alone before marriage..

  6. I am indian and i find her boring.. its fkking 2020 almost get out of the stereotypical mold. Her show is so cringe worthy in terms of looks, topics, narcissism. Thank god Hassan Minaj, Aziz ansari and other indian comedians made it before her.

  7. My kids are useless. You made us that way. Exactly. Like my mom complains that we don't do shit around the house but she never tells us to do anything. Like I can't cook because of my mom. If she had made me, I would know.

  8. If my parents see this they are gonna be like "yeah but Lily is mature enough and you are just a bachha" Yup never moving out:(

  9. The monologues are getting better each night! Keep it relatable to the audience! The connections are real even though I'm only watching your show online. 🙂

    Lots of love from KL, Malaysia.

  10. 0:18 No you don't look like you have missed any meal! lol
    You have put on so much weight! Am an old sub of yours and always knew you as the skinny Lilly.

  12. yay lilly, your getting better. please be more natural and proud of your heritage, thats what good about you. best of luck.

  13. I can just imagine what would happen if Russell Peters and you did a show together about your Indian heritage. It would be hilarious!!!!

  14. Lol Lily you're not socially awkward your just South Asian. My mom probably wouldn't let me go to Harvard because it's too far north and she couldn't visit me LOL.

  15. Lilly moved out when she was 27, low-key high-key this bothered me, LoL. Teamsuper OGs know vlog 384. And she had those tattoos before she moved out. Ahh I'm totally nitpicking, I know it's for the joke

  16. Let's be real though till you have a steady job after finishing school living on your owning LA is not practical or for most even feasible.

  17. YOU DRESS AWFUL!! HIRE A DECENT STYLIST!!!! the blue suit from today looks horrible!!! the color, the fit…everything is wrong!!!

  18. Hey Lilly. First off I am so happy you have your own show. As an Indian woman, I'm 23 and living in a rented room in a share house away from family. I moved out when I went to uni at 20. Despite some people thiking I am alone and uncapable of looking after myself I actually feel freakin free and alive. Independance has never felt sweeter and I thank my mum for supporting me with my independant choices. I am now graduated waiting to get a better job so I can get that own house without so called "marriage". Woots ! I keep encouraging other young women from cultural backgrounds to try it because it is the best gift you could give to yourself in your youth. And yeah, I agree with you. Love you superwoman.

  19. Lol. That's what I'm saying. Dont wait to be married to move out.

    Go out on your own. live by yourself. Treat yourself.

    Nothing wrong with still living with your parents till 25 as long as you trying to figure a way to become successful.

    Hell with moving out at 18 and broke, no credit score.

    Times have changed. This is not the 1900's anymore.
    All that Tradition has gone out the window

  20. India rejects italian born leader ( Who married an indian and is serving the country for more than 30 years ) but they want other countries to accept diversity and love it when indians became tv personalities or ceo's or politicians in anither country, why the double standards? lol

  21. Pretty much the same in Tunisia 😂😂🇹🇳 Also I would love to see you change your outfits, causal doesn't match your fun and loving personality ❤
