About Miranda Sings
Created by American comedian, actress, and singer Coleen Ballinger, Miranda
Sings is a satirical Internet character that was created in 2008. Ballinger acts in videos displaying the nerdy character
Miranda, as she attempts to tell jokes and sing. The humor of the character lies in her inability to carry a tune and the
fact that all of her jokes fall flat. Under the YouTube user name mirandasings08, she gives hilariously worthless "tutorials,"
attempts to sing, discusses current events that she usually doesn't quite understand, and calls out her haters. Miranda is
also a featured character on the YouTube channel, mirandavlogz. Currently, the two channels have received more than 100 million
views, with more than 900,000 subscribers.
The idea behind the character of Miranda stemmed from watching too many YouTube
videos where talentless, but egotistical singers belted out their tunes, thinking they would be the next big thing. In addition
to her Internet videos, Coleen Ballinger performs cabaret acts in character all throughout the U.S., London, Canada, and Australia.
Audiences can't get enough of her off-key singing and her faux voice lessons. Ballinger's character has also appeared in a
number of Internet interviews and web series, and she was also on an episode of the television series, Victorious.
2009, the cast of the hit musical Mamma Mia invited Ballinger's character Miranda to perform with them at the 2009 Broadway
Easter Bonnet competition. Later that year, Ballinger also released a Christmas EP titled "Christmas with Miranda Sings."
She has also made appearances at the Nightlife Awards, the CYT Directors' Choice Awards, the benefit concert "Broadway Memories"
at the Rose Center Theater, and she was one of the headliners for the Out of the Loop Fringe Festival in Addison, Texas.
reception to her character has been phenomenal. Initially gaining a fan base among musical theater and cabaret fans, she has
now found a surge of teenage fans who peruse her YouTube videos. Her cabaret acts have been met with high demand at venues
like the Birdland Jazz Club, the Town Hall, Best Buy Theater, Hotel Nikko, Ambassadors Theatre, and Leicester Square Theater,
and she played a number of sold out shows in Australia. Her most popular YouTube videos include parody covers of Nicki Minaj's
Starships and Katy Perry's California Gurls, each of which have received over 3 million views. 14 of her other videos have
reached over a million hits, and more than 60 have reached more than 500,000 views.
Miranda Sings Breakthrough
first viral video "Free Voice Lessons" received over 500,000 views, and brought her bizarre satirical humor to the masses.
In March of 2009, she uploaded the video, which was at first meant to be an inside joke, but the video quickly went viral.
This innovative comedian even modified the character of Miranda to draw attention to her features and elicit negative comments
from YouTubers. When commentators made fun of her hair, she in turn made it worse in the next video. This was evidently a
recipe for success, as the young comedian is now touring cabaret theaters all over the world.
Miranda Sings Trivia
did Colleen Ballinger specifically use as the basis for her character, Miranda?
While attending Azusa Pacific University,
Ballinger encountered many young women in the performance department who she felt were egotistical, but talentless. As the
rude girls blindly uploaded their horrible videos on YouTube, Ballinger couldn't help but see humor in the ridiculousness
of it all. Thus, the character Miranda was born, and Ballinger soon started began creating videos where her clueless character
spews out terrible advice and sings off key renditions of show tunes and pop songs.
her satirical character, Miranda, Coleen Ballinger has set out to portray the hordes of young women who naively upload YouTube
videos in an attempt to score a record deal or in the hopes of being discovered by talent scouts. Her YouTube videos have
more than 100 million views in total, and 100 million people can't all be wrong. It's clear that this comedian, actress, and
singer is not a one-hit-Internet-wonder, as she continues to play sold out shows across the U.S., and she is bringing her
unique brand of humor to a venue near you. To witness Miranda in all of her awkward and hilarious glory, visit StubHub today
