Coco and Pennys collaboration actually started as an
accident. Penny had written, produced and directed an off-off
Broadway musical revue titled, "Bowery to Broadway"
and needed to fill a character role. Mom happily volunteered
to fill the role and daughter cast her on the spot. After
the show had closed they decided that they had so enjoyed
working together that they would hit the road as a twosome.
The act began as a cabaret show but it soon evolved into a
standup comedy routine.
Based out of the classic comedy team style, Penny, plays
straight man, to Cocos wacky and zany comedic persona.

flirting with the guys, while Penny tries to keep her mother
in line and out of trouble.
Because Coco and Pennys act is so character-driven
many people and industry have commented that their act SCREAMS

and Daughters everywhere!
