For years, drag legend Coco Peru has cut her teeth interviewing stars like Bea Arthur! Liza Minelli! Lainie Kazan! Jane Fonda! Charles Busch! and Karen Black! at live staged fundraising events benefiting the Los Angeles LGBT Center. Now she wants to bring her wit, sass, and interview savvy to a new web series Conversations with Coco.
On August 13th, she plans to film a Conversations with Coco pilot, with Lily Tomlin scheduled as her first guest!
Tickets are only available on Coco’s Kickstarter page right now.
Writes Coco on Facebook: ‘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 to get the show up and running is $80,000 (of which she’s already raised MORE THAN HALF – with 18 days still to go! GO COCO!)
A portion of all proceeds from the series will go to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
Go to her Kickstarter here and GIVE TILL IT HURTS. You won’t regret it!
