For writer-comedian Sarah Cooper, the pandemic has not been so terrible. In fact, making the most of a delightful situation – in this case – opening a TikTok account while lodging in the country and synchronizing your lips with Donald Trump’s often bizarre idiots to underline their absurdity – it’s made an outlet for a country that has often found itself asking while looking at a Trump oppressor, “Is that true, what I’m seeing?”
Now, in addition to millions of online followers, she has amassed since March, Cooper – a Jamaican American who once worked at Google ̵1; has landed a Netflix special comedy.
Titled “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine”, writer and producer Natasha Lyonne is set to direct the production, and she will be executive produced by comedian-actress Maya Rudolph (who herself will be increasingly busy, running reviewed her role in “Saturday Night Live” as Senator Kamala Harris).
It’s just the last – and biggest – feather in the lid for Cooper, who lives in New York with a software engineer man whom she has described as kiddingly ending her patience with her Trump ball. He “must constantly hear the voice of Donald Trump,” as she told Vanity Fair this summer. “I think he will surely come out the window at some point.”
Cooper also recently signed with the WME talent agency, appeared on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon in June, and yesterday, even guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”.
According to that interview at VF, Cooper’s other television ambitions include writing a play about a highly confident boss who “cheats the whole country and still fails somehow.”
It’s not clear if this particular scratching Netflix scratch, but no doubt many of Trump’s destroyers – and some supporters – will take care to see what works. Netflix is not distributing many specifics, but says the product will be a special specific, whose various drawings deal “with issues of politics, race, gender, class and other light topics.”
Her monologue down, hilariously skewers her former employer, by the way. “People always ask me if it was a pleasure to work at Google, and that it was fun. I knew I was having fun because they kept telling me how much fun I should have each quarter, or else I would quit. “
