Colleen Ballinger (born November 21, 1986) is an American comedian, actress, singer and YouTube personality. She is best known for her Internet character Miranda Sings, posting videos of the character on YouTube, and performing her one-woman comedy act on tour in theatres worldwide. She created the comically talentless, egotistical and quirky character to satirize the many YouTube videos featuring people singing badly, but who appear unaware of their lack of talent. In her videos and in her stage act, the character sings and dances badly, discusses current events that she often misunderstands, gives inept "tutorials", collaborates with other (often reluctant) YouTubers, and rants about her critics, the "haters".Ballinger also features comedy and lifestyle videos on her personal YouTube channel, PsychoSoprano. Her YouTube channels, combined, have surpassed 500 million views. In 2014, Ballinger was nominated for a Teen Choice Award for her performances as Miranda Sings. Her channels are ranked as the No. 15 (Miranda Sings) and No. 27 (Psychosoprano) comedy channels on YouTube by data compiler Social Blade.Ballinger has appeared as an actress and singer Off-Broadway, in regional theatre, on television and in web series, and has sung as a guest artist on albums. In 2014, she guest-starred as Miranda Sings on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with Jerry Seinfeld and appeared as Miranda on The Tonight Show. Ballinger was a guest co-host on The View in January 2015.
