Biography

American comedienne, wide-eyed, rubber-faced, petite and winsome, a co-star with Sid Caesar at the dawn of the TV medium on the hit comedy series Your Show of Shows. Coca won an Emmy in 1951 for her subtle satire on the show in which the comedic brilliance of the pair shone in skits about everyday life, done without cue cards.

Starting out in vaudeville as a child acrobat, she studied ballet and wished to have a serious career in music and dance, graduating to decades of stage musical revues, cabaret and summer stock. In her 40s, she began a celebrated career as a comedian on television, starring in six series and guest starring on successful television programs from the 1940s to the 1990s.

Aside from vaudeville, cabaret, film, theatre and television, she voiced children's cartoons and was even featured in the 1984 MTV music video "Bag Lady" by the band EBN-OZN, ultimately working well into her 80s.

She died on 2 June 2001 of natural causes at her home in Westport, Connecticut, aged 92.
