Part 1: http://youtube.com/watch?v=F4fhSmAieAo

Sam continues his conversation with YouTube Diva, Lisa Nova! Lisa Donovan is making a name for herself in many ways. She talks about the fun she has had with friends like Jordan Peele from MADtv, Jenna Elfman from Dharma & Greg, as well as her brother and boyfriend. What she really wants to do is Direct! ... just like her Dad.

"Comfort the disturbed, and disturb the comfortable!"

Lisa is an American actress and writer. Her self-produced comedic short films, published under the username LisaNova, are among the most viewed videos on YouTube.

Donovan was a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder before moving to Los Angeles, California hoping to become an actress. There she founded Zappin Productions, a production company specializing in viral videos.

Donovan uploaded her first video, "Introducing LisaNova", to YouTube in 2006. She has parodied a number of celebrities and public figures, including George W. Bush, Keira Knightley, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Lindsay Lohan, among others. Her most popular video is a commercial parody entitled "Dumb Water". Currently LisaNova is the 9th most subscribed YouTube Partner nearing 100,000 subscribers.

On July 10, 2007 Donovan posted a video titled "LisaNova does YOUTUBE!", in which she kidnaps prominent YouTube users and forces them to comment to her subscribers, a reference to wide accusations that she has used bots to send thousands of messages to other YouTube users and created hundreds of fake YouTube accounts for publicity. The video received millions of views.

Lisa was given a featured player role on MADtv in February of 2007. She debuted in a spoof of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she played Salma Hayek, the producer of the ABC Comedy Ugly Betty.
