One of the “Top 5 Internet Comedians in 2020” is again on stage not to crack a joke but to release her newest single. Many might be surprised to know that this comedian’s passion for music started way before she found her love for comedy.
Samantha Ramsdell has been viral online for the comedy sketches and songs that she creates. As a performing artist, she is used to doing live performances on stage, but with the onset of COVID-19, she was introduced to a whole new entertainment platform on social media. Being trained in Manhattan Comedy and UCB & Groundlings, she has numerous experiences in comedy performances. Now, she has taken her comedy works to a whole new level online, which led her to receive an award as one of the top internet comedians for this year. With her large following in social media, she writes and performs parody songs as well as comedy sketches that are open to all audiences but mostly aimed at younger viewers.
For the most part, her comedy sketches and comedy songs are geared towards content, which is relatable to Millenials. Viewers usually watch the voice-overs that she makes for her four cats and her dog. Aside from her pets, she also writes parody songs, which have been very catchy and fun to sing along.
Those who know Samantha for her comedy skits may not know the fact Samantha is actually a singer and songwriter. She loves to write not only comedy but also songs which are not parodies. Her ability to play piano and guitar attests to her passion for music. Recently, she came out with her newest single “Not the Only One,” which is now available on all streaming platforms like Youtube, Spotify, and the like.
Coming from a small town in Maine, she started her passion for music at a very young age singing for church and school. She proceeded to work for corporate companies, but this did not bring her the life, energy, and satisfaction that her viewers now see from her today. After ditching the corporate world, she found her love for performing arts and even trained for acting, improv, and vocal performances. She has even participated in several Broadway shows. Her talent in performing arts clearly shines through her online videos and performances.
Today, Samantha continues to provide a wholesome form of entertainment for her online viewers. Her posts and stories on her Instagram, Facebook, and Tik Tok account provide her audience with a great escape from the problems that the world faces today. She has also used her online popularity and influence to voice out her beliefs and advocacies about the latest social issues faced by the United States today. While she may seem like a small-town girl, everyone who has seen and heard her knows that she has a very big and powerful voice, which will make you think, laugh, and sing along.
