For decades, comedian Margaret Cho has been the Agent Provocateur of stand up. Never one to shy away from a taboo topic, she considers no subjects off limits. Her socially aware, no-holds-barred brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader and a tolerant teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.

An accomplished performer in all formats, Cho has conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music, and theatre. She’s been nominated for four Grammy Awards and one Emmy Award, and her comedy tours are a constant sell-out both here and abroad. She’s had two shows debut Off-Broadway (I’m The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman) and her last stand-up, psyCHO, was filmed at the historic Gramercy Theatre in New York City.

Her 2016 music album American Myth showcases Cho’s first efforts as a composer, and was nominated for a 2017 Grammy Award for Best Comedy Album. Margaret says the album is “my glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love and hate.”
