We recently saw Coco Peru’s sold out performance here in Chicago at Hamburger Mary’s and we can’t stop talking about how wonderful it is, but, unlike one exuberant fan who got tossed out of the audience, we waited until the show was over to express our feelings.

Coco Peru’s new one drag queen show touches on some intense issues- living with regret, isolation, social media and aging. Amazingly, she always finds the humor in some pretty tough topics.

Today Coco Peru joins us from her home in Los Angeles to talk about surviving these tough times we are living in.

Coco Peru’s memorable appearance on the original Will & Grace and the show’s return to television.

Why it’s a good idea to stop and think a moment before sharing something on the Internet.

The magic of exploring the clown inside you.

    Thank you so much for having Coco on the show today. It really made my day. I first saw Coco in the movie Trick – “It burrrnnssss!” I absolutely love her. As for that British kid that called her basic……he doesn’t get it. Our gay youth only know Rupaul’s drag queens and they think being pink and pretty is all there is to drag. Wrong! Coco has style….her own…she has done movies and TV….she has written several one-woman shows. There is a lot more than the look….True talent. Coco has been my favorite for years. Love her.

    Again, thank you for having her on. Hope to see her on Cooking with Drag Queens.

    Best!
