Sara Cooper: Everything’s Fine


The Daily Show MEETS The Exorcism MEETS I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson MEETS Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Creator: Sarah Cooper, famed for her comedy career on TikTok, writes and stars. Executive produced by Natasha Lyonne and Maya Rudolph.

Platform: A Netflix TV Special

Premiere: October 22nd, 2020

Premise: Have a democratic sludge mud bath with Donald Trump lip-syncing maverick Sarah Cooper, as she thoroughly explores the pandemic panic and all the racial, social, and emotional fallout therein with a star-studded swinging good cast and a blisteringly honest portrait of the ennui we are now forced to live with and challenged to laugh at.

Dark humor, confusing exaggerations, and vivified public panic attacks abound. Yummy hum-drummy funny.

Sarah Cooper’s Rec-ipe for the Existential Dread of Election Days

You need:

-A crock pot

-An internalized horror stew of COVID-19, election, and general anxiety

-A need to work some trauma out

-No allergies to dark comedy


Fill the crockpot with your own horror stew and cook on low for five hours, stirring occasionally.

Turn on Sarah Cooper: Everything’s Fine and add each ingredient to your crockpot:

-One organic, overcommitted character actress

-Aubrey Plaza on QAnon QVC

-3 Tiny Playing Cards from a Close-Up Magic Parking Lot Show

-1/2 of a trailer for Jordan Peele’s new totally intense project Mar-a-Lago

-Fred Armisen in 7 different P.P.E. ensembles that would induce pride in Lady Gaga

-Winona Ryder as the death of our innocence in 2016

-Jane Lynch as EveryKaren

-an All-Spice 5 Day Apocalyptic Weather Forecast led by Maya Rudolph

-3+ Fire Tornadoes

-John Hamm as a pillow entrepreneur/vaccine developer

-Helen Mirren as a despicable piece of shit

Optional: Your own shamelessly cathartic emotional breakdown, alongside the juicy, gross, off-exactly-on-oh-no-please-stop-thank-you total breakdown Cooper herself serves.

Keep stirring, freeze and eat later. Servings continuously replenish themselves.

A REC means add to our MEET MEETS. Let’s glow together.
