Coco Sho-Nell is a drag performer and one of the contestants of the fourth season of Camp Wannakiki.


Coco Sho-Nell was born in a small town outside of Gary, Indiana. And that town was called Chicago! Coco has been in existence for 13 years but as a theatre actor she has been performing for over 20 years. Known for stunning looks, tight lip-syncs and Dad-Jokes, Coco is a theatre camp queen through and through.

Coco has worked with some great Theatre companies in the Chicagoland area such as Theo Ubique, Fox Valley Repetory, Northlight, Red Tape Theatre and Hell in a Handbag Productions (just to names a few). Most recently Coco was named runner up as Chicago reader’s best drag entertainer of 2020 and was named the grand Marshall for the Buffalo Grove pride parade in 2022.[5]
