Personal Quote:

The trouble with most comedians who try to do satire is that they are essentially brash, noisy and indelicate people who have to use a sledge hammer to smash a butterfly. Miss Coca, on the other hand, is the timid woman who, when aroused, can beat a tiger to death with a feather. -- TV critic See more »

Trivia:

Profiled in the book, "Funny Ladies", by Stephen M. Silverman. See more »
