About Imogene Coca

Imogene Coca was a comedic force to be reckoned with. Born in Philadelphia in 1908, Coca began her career in vaudeville before transitioning to television and film. She is best known for her work on the groundbreaking sketch comedy show "Your Show of Shows" alongside Sid Caesar.

Coca's comedic timing and physicality were unmatched, and she quickly became a fan favorite. Her ability to play a wide range of characters, from zany housewives to sophisticated socialites, made her a versatile performer.

In addition to her work on "Your Show of Shows," Coca appeared in numerous films and television shows throughout her career. She received an Emmy Award for her role on the sitcom "It's About Time" in 1967.

Despite her success, Coca remained humble and dedicated to her craft. She once said, "I'm not a star. I'm an actress. And there's a big difference."

Coca passed away in 2001 at the age of 92, but her legacy lives on. She paved the way for female comedians and inspired countless performers with her unique brand of humor.
