How ‘Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine’ Landed Those Wild Celebrity Cameos

Time was of the essence if the first comedy special from Tik Tok phenom Sarah Cooper — whose short videos lip syncing to the president’s occasionally nonsensical speeches went viral earlier in 2020 — was going to make it to air before Election Day on Nov. 3.

But within hours of the comedian and author’s first call with executive producers Natasha Lyonne, Maya Rudolph and Danielle Renfrew Behrens and their production company, Animal, the women were texting ideas to each other; within a week they had sold the project that would become Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine. The special, Cooper’s first, officially debuts Oct. 27 on Netflix.

The surreal collection of sketches and cameos and, of course, Donald Trump impersonations starts out with Cooper playing a chipper morning news anchor but quickly devolves into strange, surreal madness — like 2020, essentially. Rudolph and Lyonne’s longtime collaborators — Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell and star Fred Armisen (who is also Lyonne’s partner), along with people like Winona Ryder, Helen Mirren and even Connie Chung filled out the cast and writing staff; Rudolph appears in the special as a deranged weather woman and Lyonne directs.
