Beatriz Noloesca

Beatriz Escalona Pérez (August 20, 1903 – April 4, 1979), also known by the stage name La Chata Noloesca, was an American comic actress whose career in Spanish-language vaudeville spanned more than four decades from the 1920s through the 1950s. She is known for creating the comic persona of la peladita “La Chata,” an underdog, fast-talking character that could survive and ironically come out ahead in any situation. Escalona formed and managed several successful vaudeville companies that performed in San Antonio, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, and other cities in the United States, Cuba, and Mexico.
