I love her. Her talent is making the mundane interesting. Is she the best drag queen on YouTube?
Miss Coco Peru!

YES. I love her videos. My favorite is the one where she plays Grand Theft Auto.

I like her because she isn't completely OTT. You get that it is a drag act, but not a DRAG act. Has anyone ever seen her out of drag, I've been dying to see a pic.

She did a cold open of the original Will & Grace where she transformed into the Miss Coco drag and you saw what he looked like. Episode "Moveable Feast" from season 4, episode 9.
Not the best quality. Clinton/Coco first appears around 1:09

This video has a picture of Coco (real name: Clinton Leupp) out of drag when he was in his 20s. He was very cute. He's second from the left in the pic.

The Grand Theft Auto vid is hysterical.
I love the vids where Coco drives around LA and visits various retail outlets like Costco, Target and Walgreens. So true that he makes the mundane funny.

Drag queens in general irritate the hell out of me, but not Coco! I actually forget that she is a drag queen while listening in complete rapture, and she always makes me laugh.

The panettone videos are my favourite. Wholly agree that it's unacceptable to pay more than $6 for a panettone.
|by Anonymous||reply 8||06/25/2020|
The video that R4 posted made me cry. Coco is telling the story about her friend that she lost to AIDS and how he called her before he died. It's really sad.

Coco used to perform in NYC and LA back in the 90’s and I thought he was great. I met him in The Pines out of drag in the late 1990’s. I remember he had a small a limp from sort of minor but permanent disability with one leg.
I’d guess he’s in his mid 50’s by now.

I know she will hate this but I loved her in Trick. Yes, I know it was a 100 years ago. But that's how I first found out about you. Plus, Andria.

Coco also did an episode on Boy Meets Boy. She called out Andria I think at the time. Little did we know Mad TV would make a star out of Andria's antics.

I like that she acknowledges herself as a Drag Queen and not gender queer, trans, fluid or all the other amorphous labels.
Plus, as a Drag Queen she is not evil like so many of them now think that is what the public wants.
|by Anonymous||reply 20||06/26/2020|
That's why I like her too. She's not cutting and insulting like the vast majority. And she has words of wisdom!
|by Anonymous||reply 21||06/26/2020|
Coco is so much funnier than almost any other drag queen because she's not bitchy. She can be disgusted, or even angry, but she's not cruel nor diva-like. She just is who she is.

I saw Coco perform several years ago, and she interrupted her act to call out the trans mafia for bullying her and other drag queens... pretty courageous of her to speak up. Sadly, I believe she was thinking of retiring because of it. Did she?
|by Anonymous||reply 26||06/26/2020|
She's made comments about retiring in her videos the last couple years. If you watch her video about searching for fake nails she mentions wanting to retire in a few years and hoping to find enough of the nails to last her that long. Never mentioned the trans thing, AFAIK, but until recently her video output was pretty sporadic.

Coco is fucking everything. Nearly every day for weeks after quarantine hit, she did a YouTube series called Coco's Thoughts While in Solitude. It is so fun and cozy. I'm not even going to Mary! myself, as I usually do, but it got me through some dark shit when Rona came knocking, and I'm not ashamed. (OK, Mary!!!) Funny, informative, and hopeful.
You can find the playlist linked below. Now, every two weeks she is doing a streaming show called Casa Coco. You have to "buy" tickets, but they are free, and there is a chat window where you can gab with other fellow Coco Puffs and do a Q&A with her. It's a bit glitchy, but worth it.
If you love Coco, you will love the Solitude series. For newcomers be sure to also check out her older videos too on her YouTube channel.

Thanks, R27. It seemed she fell off the radar!
|by Anonymous||reply 29||06/26/2020|
One of her guests on the most recent Casa Coco (there have only been 2, number 3 is in a couple of weeks), was Zachary Quinto *fans self*. He is only getting hotter as he gets older. Very intelligent and quick. They talked a bit about how she knew him when he was just starting out, and how proud she is to see his career take off. She is such a genuine soul.
I hope they figure out a way to rebroadcast these new shows she's doing so you can watch it at your leisure, Right now there is only one repeat and you have to "tune in" at a scheduled time. They need to change that format. It bothers me.
Here's her Twitter if you want to hear about upcoming events...oh god help us all, it's Bianca's birthday. There should be some good insults floating around drag Twitter today.

Wow, she's had something done - either botox or fillers - or gained a lot of weight in the face. Her videos from last year show her finally aging - slightly sagging, etc. as is normal. Now she's quite plump in the face!

Coco should have a group trip where people can pay to travel with her to Machu Pichu and other cool spots in Peru. Only she'll have to be in drag the whole time.

Yes R29! Me too, but Coco came first. Actually I think the voice on Bob's Burgers is also a guy. He did some spoof of his mother on Youtube years ago that went viral and now he's doing voice over on Bob's Burgers.

A lof of the female voices are voiced by guys on Bob's Burgers. Which probably means it's getting canceled real soon.
|by Anonymous||reply 41||06/28/2020|
If you have to cancel Bob's Burgers because of the men doing woman voices, then you need to be equally fair of all the woman who do little boy cartoon voices. And while we are at it, why do woman get a way with playing little boys, it very misandric. I am looking at you Sandy Duncin AKA Peter Pan and Lily Tomlin AKA Tommy Velour.

Hi Fellow Coco Puffs!
"Tickets" are on sale now for Casa Coco on July 8th. They are free, but you still have to reserve your place. Not sure how this happens for a streaming event, but apparently they can "sell out". Maybe it's a bandwith thing. Not sure. Also, be sure to sign up separately for the rebroadcast too just in case you miss the live show. Her guests will be Alllison Janney and Chi Chi DeVayne. Sign up link below.
