With her husky voice and tremendous energy, Cocoa Brown splits sides in comedy clubs around the country.
“I don’t tell jokes. I tell the truth,” said Brown, explaining her comedic approach, in an interview with Lois Reitzes. “People are getting my life, just a little exaggerated.”
In the teachings of her comic mentor Darcel Blagmon, the equation for comedy is “simplification times exaggeration equals funny.”
