This month, J.White welcomes his friend COCOA BROWN who is undeniably one of the most talented performers of this era. The Newport News, Virginia native, born Farah Brown, assails her craft with such passion and soul searching veracity, when she claims the stage the ensuing act is nothing short of a force of nature. COCOA BROWN audaciously draws from painful reminiscences and hard-knocked lessons, bravely weaving humorous tales that uplift, upend and upgrade everything you thought you knew about comedy. What drives the comic that female fans nationwide have nicknamed “The Truth”? The sheer will of a woman who has survived the worst life had to offer and is still standing.
COCOA can currently be seen in the comedy documentary, “Dying Laughing”, which is currently on NetFlix,, alongside Jamie Foxx, Amy Schumer, Kevin Hart and Jerry Seinfeld, to name a few.
