His first viral video of 2020 was called "The Funniest Trump Roast Ever" by Funny or Die, and his subsequent viral parodies like "Social Distance" and "A Spoonful of Clorox" (described as "perfect" by John Legend) have been viewed by tens of millions. His fresh take on politics and current events has led to interviews and profiles by such venerable media outlets as The Washington Post (magazine cover story), The Hollywood Reporter, CNN, NPR, ABC News, OUT, People, and Entertainment Weekly.

He starred in New York City Center's Encores production of "Call Me Madam" and headlined the New York Comedy Festival at the Beacon Theatre to a sold-out crowd. As The Washington Post noted, Randy Rainbow has found his own spotlight through the Internet, emerging as a viral sensation who dispenses musical-comedy salve for a divided nation.
