That bothers me...

Miss Coco Peru (born Clinteon Leupp) is an American Drag Queen who started in the 1990s in New York City, and has acted in television and films. She now lives in Los Angeles where in her signature copper red bubble flip wig she's gained viral video fame through her love of pannetone and her disgust of the people around her. When she's not hosting one woman shows or doing stand up, she can be found on YouTube wandering around stores complaining about the stuff being sold and inconsiderate shoppers and their children. If only she had her Tension Tamer tea...

She's also hosted a series of interviews with several gay icons over the years in her "Conversations with Coco" web series including Bea Arthur, Liza Minnelli, Lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda.


Selected Filmography

Coco Peru provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Berserk Button: Has a few ("That bothers me" isn't one of her catchphrases for no reason) including: People who don't call 311 to get rid of their bulk garbage, getting a cup of hot water and teabag on the side, people who are on their phones, taggers, barking dogs and people who don't wave hello.
  • Big Applesauce: She's a legend in the New York City drag scene and aside from her copper red wig, Coco's other signature feature is her strong Bronx accent.

  • Catchphrase: "That bothers me..."
  • Happily Married: Is noted to bring up her Spanish born husband in conversation FREQUENTLY.
  • Old Soldier: One of the legends of New York City's drag scene. In one of her videos when she goes to a RuPaul's Drag Race pop-up store in downtown Hollywood she remarks that she knows pretty much every queen with merchandise on the shelves and likens herself to a proud (great) grandma as she notices all her close friends having such success.
  • Static Character: Played with purposefully. Unlike many drag queens, Coco does not change much about her appearance from show to show. Especially using the same styled and colored wig. She is referred to with affectionate mocking by fellow drag queen Jackie Beat as "Old One Wig".
  • The Storyteller: Refers to herself as a "Monologuist".
  • When I Was Your Age...: A recurring theme in her material, often played up for comedic effect. Some examples include her disdain for people who are obsessed with their phones rather than taking in the world around them and her visceral reaction to someone preferring the Lindsay Lohan version of The Parent Trap (1998) to the Hayley Mills original The Parent Trap (1961).
