Comedienne Coca dies at 92
By Doug Galloway
HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - Imogene Coca, who co-starred with Sid Caesar on the hit 1950s comedy series ``Your Show of Shows,'' died Saturday of natural causes at her home in Westport, Conn. She was 92.

A talented comedienne, singer and dancer blessed with boundless energy and a big smile, her forte was subtle exaggeration. Along with Caesar, she delighted early '50s TV audiences with over-the-top spoofs of current topics.

Commenting on Coca's passing, Caesar said, ``All the wonderful times we shared together meant the world to me. It was a pleasure to work with her. I will miss her dearly.''
