Finalist in YouTube Comedian

About Miranda Sings

Miranda Sings, from comedian Colleen Ballinger Evans, is the obnoxious and somehow endearing parody of a YouTube star. Staunchly religiously conservative, racist, homophobic, and delightfully unaware, the character of Miranda is a cross of Lea Michele’s character on Glee and the woman from the viral “Can’t Hug Every Cat" autotuned video. In 2015, Miranda’s book Self-Help became a bestseller, she was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, and she appeared on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which she promoted on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. As TV Guide puts it, Miranda was “created to satirize the very type of YouTube fame she’s managed to cultivate."
