For writer and comedian Sarah Cooper, the pandemic was not so terrible. In fact, by capitalizing on a worst-case scenario – in this case, open up a TikTok account while hiding in place and lip-sync to Donald Trump’s bizarre routine chatter to emphasize innocence. their reason – she has become the outlet for a nation that often wonders when watching someone presses Trump: “Is this the truth, what am I seeing?”
Now, in addition to the millions of online followers she has accumulated since March, Cooper – a Jamaican-American who used to work at Google – has landed Netflix special comedy.
Titled “Sarah Cooper: Everything̵7;s Alright,” writer and producer Natasha Lyonne will direct the production, and it will be run by comic book actor Maya Rudolph (who will become increasingly busy. assumes his role in “Saturday Night Live” as Sen. Kamala Harris).
It was just the latest – and greatest – fur in the hat of Cooper, who lives in New York with her software engineer husband she jokingly describes as being impatient with her Trump wand. He’s “got to hear Donald Trump’s voice over and over again,” as she told Vanity Fair this summer. “I think he might jump out the window at some point.”
Cooper recently signed with the talent agency WME, appearing on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon in June and yesterday, even as a guest host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
According to that VF interview, Cooper’s other television ambitions included writing a show about an overconfident boss who “messed up everywhere and somehow still failed”.
It’s not clear if this particular Netflix will scratch that itch, but certainly many Trump detractors – and some supporters – will keep an eye on what it features. Netflix does not share many specifics, but they say the production will be very special with various vignettes covering “issues of politics, race, gender, class, and themes. Another gentle. “
By the way, her monologue hilariously skews her former master. “People are always asking me if it’s fun and not working at Google is already happy. I know I’m having fun because they are constantly telling me how much fun I should have every quarter, otherwise I’ll get fired. “
