Randy Stewart Rainbow (born July 6, 1981) is a Grammy-nominated American comedian and singer, best known for spoof interviews that blend political satire and musical parodies from a progressive perspective.

Rainbow credits his grandmother as his greatest comedic influence. In a 2017 interview with The New York Times, he recalled “It was really my grandmother who was the biggest influence because she’d talk back to the celebrities and politicians on TV. She was a combination of Joan Rivers, Elaine Stritch, Betty White, and Bea Arthur rolled into one.” After dropping out of community college in his early 20s, Rainbow moved back to New York to pursue a theatrical career. It was then he began blogging and making comedic videos.
Rainbow created his blog, The Randy Rainbow Bloggity BLAHg-BLAHg, to document his theatrical experiences and “kvetch about my day-to-day as a single homo in the city.”
