TJB you fucking killed me with this post. Charo is so friggin hilarious. She's in a class all by herself and I do mean that she exists on a whole different level than us mere mortals and she has mastered the art of murdering the English language I swear that Rita Moreno must have based her characterization of "Googie Gomez" in THE RITZ on Charo."Coochi Coochi bay-bay"
I actually had the opportunity to see the legendary Charo when she appeared as a guest star in Pete & Keely, an off-Broadway revue about a fictional, Steve & Eydie-type duo. If you can get past the crazy hair, the wild getups, the Cuchi-Cuchi schtick, she's a talented musician and performer. And you gotta hand it to her for sheer longevity and tenacity. But MAN! This clip is just surreal, and a little sad.
life just couldnt get any better...
I seem to remember hearing on the radio about 25 years ago that she had just legally changed her age (as one legally changes a name), reducing it by 10 years!
