Coco Peru launches Kickstarter campaign to film “Conversations With Coco” pilot w/Lily Tomlin

Just so you know, one of my favorite events ever was the night about five years ago when Coco Peru had an unforgettable evening of conversation with Lily Tomlin at the LA LGBT Center’s Renberg Theatre.

I was also there when Coco did the same with Liza Minnelli but missed her chat with Jane Fonda. Other guests over the years for these epic evenings have included Bea Arthur, Lainie Kazan, Allison Janney, Lesley Ann Warren, Karen Black and Charles Busch.

These are epic evenings so it’s thrilling to learn that after ten years of these successful live fundraising events, the legendary drag performer is planning to film a Conversations with Coco pilot!

And here’s the kicker: Lily Tomlin is scheduled as her first guest on August 13!

Tickets are only available on Coco’s Kickstarter page right now.

Writes Coco on Facebook today: ‘Get them while you can! Lots of other great rewards, including personal belongings from my own closet! This won’t happen without your support, so if you only do one favor for me in your lifetime, please back the project, share it with everyone you know, and join me at the pilot taping this summer!’

The fundraising goal is $80,000.

A portion of all proceeds from the series will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
