Carly Fleischmann

YouTube Personality

In January 2018, Carly Fleischmann swapped spots with Stephen Colbert, becoming the first nonverbal person with autism to guest-host The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Fleischmann, who has used a computer to communicate since she was ten years old, isn’t new to the interviewer seat: she hosts her own YouTube series, “Speechless with Carly Fleischmann,” in which she has interviewed celebrities including Channing Tatum and James Van Der Beek, all with the assistance of her computer, which voices the text she inputs. At 22-years-old, Fleischmann has achieved more than many of us could only dream — yet her aspirations don’t stop here. One day, she’d like to host her own talk show, with guests like Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres and Brad Pitt at the top of her list.
