Happy Birthday to Clinton Luepp (aka Coco Peru!)
For 20 years now, Clinton Luepp has been entertaining audiences as the fabulous Coco Peru, a first-rate storyteller/monologist/singer.
Coco refers to herself as a “low-end celebrity drag queen” but the truth is, this is a brilliant performer with impeccable timing and lots of heart.
Last May, I attended opening night of Coco’s latest show There Comes a Time and she talked a little bit about getting older. Since today is Coco’s birthday, here are some of her thoughts about the passage of time:
“Let’s face it, I feel old. Time rolls on … Rolls on like a f*****g steamroller. Some of us get more steamrolled than others.”
Coco also has trouble with all the modern technology from iPads to DVRs: “The Wizard of Oz came on once a year and that’s when you watched it and if you missed it, well tough sh*t Dorothy!”
