ABOUT Randy Rainbow

Randy Rainbow is a two-time EMMY nominated American comedian, producer, actor, singer, writer and satirist best known for his popular YouTube series, The Randy Rainbow Show. His musical parodies and political spoofs have garnered him worldwide acclaim and two EMMY nominations for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series. His first viral video of 2020 was called "The Funniest Trump Roast Ever" by Funny or Die, and his subsequent viral parodies like "Social Distance" and "A Spoonful of Clorox" (described as "perfect" by John Legend) have been viewed by tens of millions. His fresh take on politics and current events has led to interviews and profiles by such venerable media outlets as The Washington Post (magazine cover story), The Hollywood Reporter, CNN, NPR, ABC News, OUT, People and Entertainment Weekly. Rainbow (yes, that's his real name) enjoys a star-studded fan base that regularly retweets and shares his work. Some notable admirers include Ryan Reynolds, Carol Burnett, Josh Gad, Debra Messing, Sharon Stone, Alan Menken, Don Lemon, George Takei, Mark Hamill, Hillary Clinton, Stephen Sondheim, Melissa McCarthy, Jane Lynch, Ana Navarro, Barry Manilow, Ben Stiller, Sarah Silverman, Julie Andrews, Rosie O'Donnell, Martin Short, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Steve Martin. Rainbow was recently featured as a guest lead opposite Molly Shannon on the fourth season of FX's comedy-drama series "Better Things." He has hosted and performed in numerous theatrical events for the Broadway, cabaret and LGBTQ communities, as well as for the TONY Awards. He starred in New York City Center's Encores production of "Call Me Madam" and headlined the New York Comedy Festival at the Beacon Theatre to a sold-out crowd. As The Washington Post noted, Randy Rainbow has found his own spotlight through the Internet, emerging as a viral sensation who dispenses musical-comedy salve for a divided nation.
