About the Author

Randy Rainbow is a three-time Emmy-nominated comedian, actor, singer, writer, and satirist best known for his popular series of musical parodies and political spoofs, which have garnered him international acclaim. Randy tours the U.S. to sold-out audiences, and his viral comedy videos receive millions of views across all social media and digital platforms. He resides in New York City.


"I was already a big fan of Randy's commentary on American celebrity and culture. Always smart, always wickedly funny, with his tongue firmly planted in his cheek. I waited, as we all did, for his next target. Then he asked me to sing with him. His target, Donald Trump. Oh joy! I went to his apartment and met a shy, handsome young guy who just happens to have this enormous talent. It was a joyful two hours. I left his home with a huge smile and lots of swag. I wait patiently now, as we all do, for his next video that will make me laugh, make me feel not so alone in my thinking, make me wonder in awe at the audacious force of nature that is Randy Rainbow."
--Patti LuPone

"Discovering Randy is one of my happiest memories. I don't toss around the word 'genius' often, but there's no other word to describe him. After being in touch with each other, I'm thrilled to call him my friend. He's as nice as he is talented. Wow." --Carol Burnett

"Brilliant . . . as good as anyone writing lyrics today." --Stephen Sondheim

"I fall in love with Randy Rainbow a little bit more with each new video. Brilliant! And that voice!" --RuPaul

"Randy Rainbow is so damn important." --Lin Manuel Miranda

"A rollicking debut . . . packed with well-timed zingers . . . Rainbow's gift for striking a well-honed phrase will have readers cackling. Fans are sure to be heartened and tickled by this entertaining account." --Publishers Weekly

"Buoyant and campy throughout, Rainbow's revelations and lighthearted banter will entertain fans and newbies alike. A chatty autobiography brimming with heart and humor."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Filled with the kind of anecdotes that anyone raised on a steady diet of Sex and the City and Broadway musicals will eat up with a spoon, Rainbow's memoir is pure, indulgent fun. Fans of Rainbow (there are millions, and they include big-name celebs, presidential candidates, and Broadway superstars) will want this book immediately, as will anyone who enjoys a good, dishy celebrity memoir." --Booklist (starred)
