Coco Sho-Nell

Coco Sho-Nell was born in a small town outside of Gary, Indiana.... And that town was called Chicago! She began working the mean streets of Jeffrey manor before she decided to pack her bags and move out of the hood to the other side of the tracks. There she met the Lovely Ashley Morgan and HERstory was made. For 8 years she was a resident choreographer and regular cast member performing every 3rd Saturday of the month at the Call Bar. There Coco was part of the Charity Drag show “Ashley Morgan Presents…” Now you can find Coco periodically in her own drag/cabaret variety show “Coco Sho-Nell Presents…”around Chicago and virtually on twitch.tv/cocoshonell. Also every third Fiday of the month at with Ben D. Mann's boylesque on twitch.tv/bendmann.  To find out where you can check out Coco Sho-Nell, visit her on twitter @CocoShoNell, IG @cocoshonell and feel free to support Coco by giving to her some coin via Venmo @Cocosho-nell80
