Coco, a 40-year old immigrant who started with nothing, is the perfect Sephardi success story. As his son Samuels bar mitzvah nears, he plans a spectacular party with 2,000 guests. But as he becomes overly involved in the preparations that include stadiums and large-scale concerts, he fails to see that his family is slowly drifting apart. COCO, based on a character sketch he created for his one-man show, La Vie Normale, is Gad Elmaleh at his best.
Gad Elmaleh is a French, Moroccan and Canadian stand-up comedian and actor. He has starred in several feature films, including Coco, Priceless, La Doublure, and Midnight in Paris. He has been voted the funniest person in France and was named Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters by the Minister of Culture; he was also named Knight of the National Order of Quebec. He is often referred to as the Seinfeld of France. In 2015, Elmaleh did a national comedy tour across the United States.
