The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Lily Tomlin/Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center is thrilled to announce the return of the legendary Miss Coco Peru to the Renberg Theatre. The YouTube sensation brings a three-night-only run of her brand-new solo show Miss Coco Peru Is Bitter, Bothered & Beyond to the Center on Friday and Saturday, April 29 and 30, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, May 1, at 7 p.m. 

After everything that's been going on in the world, Coco is ready to unleash her thoughts about the past, present, and future! Yes, this exhausted dinosaur of drag is not holding back anything in her new show Miss Coco Peru Is Bitter, Bothered & Beyond!

Miss Coco Peru (aka Clinton Leupp) has been a household name in the LGBT community for more than 25 years. She got her start in the early ‘90s as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of New York after she wrote, produced, directed, and starred in her first show Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret and has since enjoyed an expansive career, ranging from intimate cabaret stages in New York and L.A., to television sets in millions of living rooms. She's toured around the world, has over nine million views on YouTube, and has been in multiple cherished films, garnering multiple awards and nominations for her work.

A veteran of numerous feature films (trick, To Wong Foo..., the cult classic Girls Will Be Girls, and more), and television shows (How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Will & Grace, among numerous others), Coco has also become a viral sensation on social media platforms, including Instagram and YouTube.

Considered "the hostess with that something... extra," Coco has received worldwide acclaim for her award-winning solo shows that she's starred in, written, produced, and directed, as well as her remarkable series of tributes to great performers, Conversations with Coco, in which she conducted live career-retrospective interviews with such luminaries as Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Liza Minnelli, and the late Bea Arthur.

Coco's long history of passionate activism, unflagging support of the LGBT community, and fierce dedication to AIDS-related charities earned her the Los Angeles LGBT Center's Board of Directors Award, presented to her by Zachary Quinto.

She is also available for children's parties.
