LisaNova on YouTube

Donovan uploaded her first video, "Introducing LisaNova," to YouTube on June 7, 2006.[4] She has parodied a number of celebrities and public figures, including Keira Knightley, Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Lindsay Lohan. Her most popular video is a commercial parody entitled "Dumb Water."[5] As of November 29, 2009, LisaNova is listed as the 40th most subscribed of all time and 12th most subscribed for directors with 302,368 subscribers.[6] 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,[7] a reference to accusations and outrage from the YouTube community that she had used spambots to send thousands of messages to other YouTube users for publicity. The video received more than 2.58 million views as of June 10, 2009 and while YouTube chose not to suspend Donovan's channel for violation of their Terms of Service, it resulted in YouTube altering its messaging policy, restricting the number of messages that could be left on a channel in a certain time period.[7] She is also part of the YouTube channel 'The Station'. She worked in parodies with other YouTubers such as ShayCarl, Davedays, KassemG, Raphablueberry, ceciley, thebdonski, hiimrawn, VenetianPrincess and Shane Dawson.


Lisa Donovan was given a featured player role in MADtv in February 2007.[8] She debuted in a spoof of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she played Salma Hayek, the producer of the ABC Comedy Ugly Betty, and Rosie O'Donnell.[9] The episode aired on February 17, 2007. After signing a contract and only appearing in four episodes of MADtv, her featured player role was not extended into the following season. Lisa Donovan also appears in liamkylesullivan's video "Let Me Borrow That Top".
