The star-studded lineup of honorees includes Samantha Bee, John Leguizamo, Nick Kroll, Lilly Singh, Andrew Rannells, Hannah Einbinder, Pamela Adlon, Jaboukie Young-White, Robbie Praw, and Cazzie David.

Among the luminaries to be celebrated, Lilly Singh stands out as a trailblazer in the world of comedy. The entertainer will be honored with the inaugural Comedy Crossover Award, recognizing her remarkable journey from YouTube creator to TV host and now an accomplished actor.
