For author-comedian Sarah Cooper, the pandemic has not been so awful. In simple fact, by making the greatest of a awful situation — in this situation, opening a TikTok account even though sheltering in location and lip syncing to the typically-weird ramblings of Donald Trump to underscore their absurdity — she has turn into an outlet for a nation that has frequently located by itself asking whilst looking at a Trump presser: “Is this real, what I’m viewing?”
Now, in addition to the millions of on the web followers she has amassed because March, Cooper — a Jamaican American who the moment labored at Google — has landed a Netflix comedy exclusive.
Titled “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fantastic,” the writer and producer Natasha Lyonne is set to direct the production, and it will be govt produced by the comedian-actor Maya Rudolph (who will herself be more and more fast paced, reprising her part on “Saturday Evening Live” as Senator Kamala Harris).
It is just the newest — and most significant — feather in the cap for Cooper, who lives in New York with a computer software engineer partner whom she has kiddingly explained as managing out of patience with her Trump schtick. He “has to hear Donald Trump’s voice around and in excess of once again,” as she informed Vanity Honest this summer months. “I imagine he’s possibly heading to jump out the window at some level.”

According to that VF job interview, Cooper’s other Tv ambitions consist of composing a show about an overly self-confident manager who “fucks up all more than the spot and continue to in some way fails up.”
It is not clear if this Netflix distinctive scratches that itch, but no question a lot of Trump detractors — and some supporters — will be trying to keep an eye out to see what it does attribute. Netflix is not sharing many particulars, but it suggests the output will be a range exclusive whose a variety of vignettes offer “with issues of politics, race, gender, course, and other mild subjects.”
Her monologue underneath hilariously skewers her former employer, by the way. “People generally inquire me if it was entertaining to work at Google, and it was enjoyment. I knew I was owning fun due to the fact they held telling me how substantially exciting I really should have each quarter, or else I would be fired.”
