Sarah Cooper -- known for her impressions of Donald on TikTok -- just landed a deal

For writer-comedian Sarah Cooper, the pandemic hasn’t been so terrible. In fact, by making the best of a terrible situation — in this case, opening a TikTok account earlier this year, and proceeding to lip sync to the often-bizarre ramblings of Donald — she has become an outlet for a country that has often found itself asking while watching a presser: “Is this real, what I’m seeing?”

Now, in addition to the millions of online followers she has amassed since March, Cooper — a Jamaican American who once worked at Google — has landed a comedy special.

Titled “Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine,” the writer and producer Natasha Lyonne is set to direct the production, and it will be executive produced by the comic-actor Maya Rudolph (who will herself be increasingly busy, reprising her role on “Saturday Night Live” as Senator Kamala Harris).

It’s just the latest — and biggest — feather in the cap of Cooper, who lives in New York with a husband whom she has kiddingly described as running out of patience with her schtick. He “has to hear Donald ’s voice over and over again,” as she told Vanity Fair this summer. “I think he’s probably going to jump out the window at some point.”

Cooper also recently signed with the talent agency WME, appeared on “The Tonight Show” with in June, and yesterday, even

the storied show.
