Sarah Cooper who lip syncs to Trump lands Netflix comedy special amid soaring career success

Comedian Sarah Cooper, who became a TikTok sensation with satirical videos of President Donald Trump, will appear in her own variety special on Netflix, the streaming service announced on Wednesday.

‘It’s true!’ Cooper, 42, tweeted Wednesday. ‘I’m getting a Netflix special! And I couldn’t have done it without all your support, THANK YOU SO MUCH.’ 

Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine will feature vignettes on politics, race, gender, class, ‘and other light subjects,’ Netflix said in a statement.  

Set to air in the fall, the special also will feature guests taking part in interviews and sketches. Cooper became popular in April after she began posting short videos on social media app TikTok of herself lip syncing to remarks by Trump.

Her ‘How to medical’ video, set to Trump’s widely criticized comments suggesting UV light and disinfectant might be able to fight the novel coronavirus, has been viewed more than 22 million times on TikTok.

The special will appear on the streaming service this autumn.

Cooper will collaborate on the special with Natasha Lyonne, who is directing; and Maya Rudolph, who’s executive producer on the project.

She previously went viral with a Medium piece called 10 Tricks to Appear Smart During Meetings, parlaying the success into a book titled 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings: How to Get By Without Even Trying. Cooper has also penned the book How to be Successful Without Hurting Men’s Feelings.

She appeared as a guest host of late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday.  Amid her swift rise to fame, Cooper has also made appearances on The Tonight Show and Ellen.

Cooper began her career by performing stand-up comedy while working at companies including Google and Yahoo.
