Today in Sometimes Twitter Is Good news, two entertainers known for Twitter Goodness joined forces for a moving yet funny cover of A Star Is Born’s catchy jam “Shallow.” Comedian Paul F. Tompkins makes his mark on Twitter with general silliness, some spirited singing, and a level of wokeness surprising for a famous white guy. Writer/performer Natalie Walker is Twitter famous for her running series of “audition tapes,” each a scathing parody of the bullshit, sexist supporting roles offered to actresses.

This talented twosome recently appeared together on stage, blending comedy and bravado to perform a cover the Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper duet from A Star Is Born. A snippet of the performance surfaced on Twitter, then thankfully a hero shared a fuller version of this impeccable performance.
