The fiery performer, whose credits include a starring role in Tyler Perry’s critically acclaimed comedy series “For Better or Worse” on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN Network and a recurring role on the Byron Allen-produced “The First Family", has assembled an extensive body of work, including 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 at Kennedy Center Honors 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 Mom’s Club”, a feature film that cast the accomplished actress in the leading role. 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.
Cocoa Brown says, “I want audiences to connect with my story and in the course of that journey find their own. That is my inspiration, my peace. I am in a good place now. I am finally learning how to love myself and I am comfortable in my own skin. Most importantly, I am not afraid to use my voice.”
That is certainly a good thing. That beautiful, husky, unapologetic and very funny voice will no doubt, change the world.
