For its latest big get, Netflix has snagged Sarah Cooper, the comedian who has perfected mocking President Donald Trump using his own words (via Variety). The company will start streaming Sarah Cooper: Everything's Fine this fall. Netflix says the special will feature an array of guests taking part in short interviews and sketches led by Cooper. It will touch on topics like race, gender, class "and other light subjects."

Helping Cooper bring the special to life is a talented crew that includes Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black, Russian Doll) and Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6, Vader Immortal). Lyonne will direct, with Rudolph serving as one of the executive producers on the special.
By this point, you've probably seen Cooper's "How to medical," a TikTok video where she pokes fun at the White House briefing where President Trump suggested doctors could use disinfectants to treat COVID-19. The video has 22.4 million views and 174 thousand retweets on Twitter.
Cooper also has a connection to the world of tech. Before becoming a comedian, she worked as a design manager at Google, assisting the Docs, Sheets and Slides teams. Her time at the search giant inspired 100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings, a satire about how to be successful at team meetings.
