Best-selling author and viral Tik-Tok star Sarah Cooper, known for her lip-sync impressions of President Donald Trump, has scored her first comedy special on Netflix.

Everything's Fine will feature Cooper and a variety of guests in vignettes and sketches discussing issues of politics, race, gender, class and more. "And I couldn't have done it without all your support, THANK YOU SO MUCH", she wrote.

Cooper's viral videos, usually featured on TikTok, is reportedly the reason why Trump wants to ban the online platform.

Cooper will collaborate on the special with Natasha Lyonne, who is directing; and Maya Rudolph, who's executive producer on the project.

The 40-something Jamaican-born comedian calls Trump her "head writer", and has gained over two million Twitter followers as well as celebrity fans such as former president Barack Obama, comedians Steve Martin and Jerry Seinfeld, and "Hamilton" creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
