Get ready to laugh! YouTube sensation Miranda Sings is hitting Netflix with her new show, ‘Haters Back Off!’ But before you tune into her brand new series, there’s some things you need to know about the funny woman!
Miranda Sings’, 29, new show Haters Back Off debuted on Netflix on Oct. 14, and we couldn’t be more excited to watch! Seriously, this girl cracks us up every time with her off-pitch singing and slap-stick humor! But before you Netflix and chill, we’ve got five fast facts you have to know about the one-woman act.
1. Miranda is actually the comedic alter ego of actress Colleen Ballinger Evans.
Say what?! Miranda Sings is not this funny girl’s real name; it’s actually the alter ego of comedian and actress Colleen Ballinger! Miranda is the loud, energetic, lipstick-wearing oddball character that Colleen came up with to star in her YouTube videos. Miranda likes to think of herself as a “five threat” — a singer, actress, dancer, model, and magician. The only problem is she sings off-key; she goes over the top with her acting; she has no rhythm, and her magic tricks always seem to fail. SO funny!
2. She’s a YouTube sensation!
Miranda might not be your typical Internet-famous model or make up artist, but the Internet loves her! She already has six million subscribers on YouTube, and her channel has clocked in more than 830 million views. That’s insane!
3. Miranda coined the phrase “haters back off” on her YouTube series.
Before there was a Netflix show about it, Miranda frequently used the catchphrase “haters back off” when responding to negative comments people left on her social media accounts and videos. Miranda’s haters might keep coming, but in the end, she’s getting the last laugh. Bye haters!
4. In addition to her YouTube videos, she also performs one-woman live comedy acts.
Miranda isn’t only a character behind a small screen. Since 2009, the YouTube sensation has hit the road to perform as a one-woman live act around the world! In the past, she’s appeared at shows in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Toronto, Amsterdam, London and more! Talk about a world traveller. Her acts usually feature her transforming from Colleen into her alter ego to teach audiences how to sing and act.
5. Miranda has a pretty huge fan.
In addition to her millions of followers on YouTube and social media, Miranda has one major fan: Jerry Seinfeld! That’s right; you read it correctly! Jerry Seinfeld loves Miranda Sings! After Jerry was introduced to her act by his teen daughter, the most influential comedian ever invited Miranda to his improv web show Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. He’s also sang her praises in various interviews. “She’s a very special character. It’s a rich character, and it definitely can grow into a different container,” Jerry said in an interview with Vulture.
