If comics were made up of ingredients, and you took a dab of Richard Pryor with a dash of Jerry Lewis, a teaspoon of Marilyn Monroe and a cup of Whoopi Goldberg, you'd get a dynamic dish known as Cocoa Brown. Brown is undeniably one of the most talented comics and performers of this generation.
The Newport News, Virginia native, born Farah Brown, assails her craft with such
passion and soul-searching veracity, when she claims a stage the ensuing act is nothing
short of a force of a nature. Cocoa Brown audaciously draws from painful reminiscences
and hard-knocked lessons, bravely weaving humorous tales that uplift, upend, and
upgrade everything you thought you knew about comedy. What drives the comic who
female fans nationwide have nicknamed the “The Truth”? The sheer will of a woman
who survived the worst life had to offer and is still standing.
The fiery performer, whose credits include Tyler Perry’s critically acclaimed comedy
series “For Better or Worse” on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network and a national
commercial spot for Progressive Insurance Company, has assembled an extensive body
of work. A career that began as an advertising associate for Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus and a writer for various sketch comedy shows proved confining for the
dynamic performer. She honed her writing and creativity to pursue her dream of being a
stand-up comic. A decade later Brown had nearly mastered the art of comedy. She
harnessed its essence and purpose, performing on top rated comedy shows including
BET’s “Comic View” and “One Mic Stand”, and “Showtime at the Apollo”.
Today, she exemplifies mind-blowing humor, daring drama and contemporary reality wrapped in a boundlessly energetic package. Whether she is performing in honor of the incomparable Richard Pryor or acting in films such as “Lakeview Terrace” with Samuel L. Jackson, Brown exudes skill and discipline. Those characteristics, along with her chilling story of struggle and redemption, inspired Tyler Perry to create “Single Moms Club”, a feature film that casts the accomplished actress in the leading role. The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in 2014. The comedy veteran and rising star, fueled by Perry’s powerful vote of confidence, is ramping up her ambitions in a relentless mission to become the performer many people doubted but even more admire. With a nomination for a Screen Actors Guild award under her belt, Brown has her sights set on an Oscar, an Emmy and a Pulitzer Prize. She is writing a revealing autobiography and producing her highly anticipated one-woman show, “Confessions of a Suicidal Diva”.
