Interview: Miss Coco Peru Discusses Her New Show, Bartending on "Watch What Happens: Live," and a Scary Voicemail from Bea Arthur

Miss Coco Peru, a.k.a. Clinton Leupp, has enjoyed a 20-year career in drag that has yielded unforgettable results, including her signature line in the 1999 movie Trick ("It burns!"), a starring role in Richard Day's gay cinematic classic Girls Will Be Girls, and a number of hilarious and touching live shows, including her "Conversations with Coco" series at Los Angeles' Gay & Lesbian Center, which has featured special guests such as Bea Arthur, Lily Tomlin, Karen Black, and (my girl) Lesley Ann Warren.

Earlier this week she bartended during an episode of Andy Cohen's Bravo talk show Watch What Happens: Live, and on Thursday, she debuted her new show She's Got Balls at New York's Laurie Beechman Theatre for a weekend run.

We caught up with Coco to discuss nervous jitters, meeting Andy Cohen, and Bea Arthur's threatening voicemails.

AfterElton: "She's Got Balls" is a pretty commanding title.
