Storyteller/monologist Miss Coco Peru aka Clinton Leupp got his/her start as a downtown favorite in the cabaret world of NY after he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in his first show Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret  over 20 years ago.

On screen, Miss Coco is best known for her roles in Jim Fall's feature film, trick (Sundance 1999) and Richard Day's Girls Will Be Girls. (Sundance 2002) For this film Coco shared the Best Actress Award with his two co-stars at the HBO Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen as well as the Best Actor Award at LAs Outfest Film Festival. Other film appearances include To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, Nick and Jane, and Straight-Jacket. Coco can be heard in the Disney animated feature, The Wild as Mamma Hippo! She also appears in the highly-ish anticipated sequel of Girls Will Be Girls which will be released some day, hopefully.

Coco has appeared on TV in two stand-up comedy specials on LOGO: Wisecrack and Dragtastic, How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Twins, Will and Grace, New York Undercover, Detroit 187, several Bravo reality and clip shows, and in an Orbitz commercial that was nominated for a GLAAD Media Award.

Cocos live one-person shows include: Miss Coco Peru in My Goddamn Cabaret, Miss Coco Peru: A Legend in Progress (92 MAC and Bistro Award), Miss Coco Peru at the Westbeth Theatre (95 MAC Nomination), Miss Coco Peru's Liquid Universe(98 GLAAD Nomination), Miss Coco Peru's Universe (99 LA GLAAD Nomination), Miss Coco Perus Glorious WoundsShes Damaged (01 LA GLAAD Nomination) Miss Coco Peru is Undaunted (04 GLAAD Award Winner, Ovation Nomination), and the hugely successful UGLY COCO, THERE COMES A TIME, SHES GOT BALLS and her current production: A GENTLE REMINDER: Cocos Guide to a Somewhat Happy Life. These shows have been performed to sold out audiences in Theatres, Clubs, Restaurants, Ballrooms and Cabarets throughout the US and abroad. She currently has dates scheduled nationwide through 2017.

Coco hosts an on-going live series of shows at the Renberg Theater in Los Angeles called Conversations With Coco in which Coco interviews and celebrates the lives and careers of the LGBT community's favorite icons. Miss Peru's guests include Liza Minnelli, Jane Fonda, Bea Arthur, Lily Tomlin, Karen Black, Lainie Kazan, Lesley Ann Warren, and drag legend Mr. Charles Busch. After a very successful Kickstarter campaign, a television pilot of Conversations with Coco will be taped with her guest, Lily Tomlin, in August 2016.

Cocos recent online Youtube videos have been seen by over 2 million viewers. Her video Coco Goes to KMART, in which she searches for Celestial Seasoning Tension Tamer tea, has more than over 800,000 views. For this reason, Coco has had to ask her fans to stop sending her the tea. She has received close to 100 boxes!

Considered The Hostess with that something extra Coco has hosted numerous events including: The GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, Night of a Thousand Gowns in NYC, Chicago Takes Off, Hot and Dry in Palm Springs, Gay Days Anaheim, The Black and White Ball in Reno, LAs OUTFEST Legacy Awards, the BALIF (Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom) Dinner in San Francisco, Project Informs 25th Annual Fundraiser (SF) and Charity Bingo at Harrahs Atlantic City.
