Sarah Cooper, Gifted Comic Causing Trump’s TikTok Meltdown, Gets Netflix Special Directed By Natasha Lyonne, Produced by Maya Rudolph


Sarah Cooper is the gifted actress/comic who’s sent Donald Trump into a tizzy over TikTok. Her impressions of him on TikTok– she lip synchs his ludicrous speeches and comments– has made Trump try to ban the online app from existence in the United States.

Now Cooper– who guest hosted Jimmy Kimmel’s show last night brilliantly — is getting a Netflix special. And what an A list team! Natasha Lyonne is directing, Maya Rudolph is exec producing.

Press release says: “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine, a variety special full of vignettes dealing with issues of politics, race, gender, class, and other light subjects. Sarah will be joined by a fantastic array of special guests who will participate in short interviews, sketches and more shenanigans. Everything’s Fine will premiere globally in Fall 2020.”

Now we need a special for Maria DeCotis, who simultaneous to Cooper took off like a rocket doing lip synchs of Andrew Cuomo.

How lucky we are to have these two funny ladies giving some comic relief in a terrible time!
