Five time Grammy & Emmy nominated US comedian Margaret Cho has much to celebrate as she was recently named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time and is set to launch what is sure to be her sickest stand-up comedy show to date this autumn. The UK tour takes in 7 dates and starts on 25th November at Edinburgh’s Queens Hall and culminates at London’s o2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on 10th December.
A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and her razor sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism and Asian-ness. It's all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics.
Aptly titled Fresh Off The Bloat, Margaret says, 'This is my sickest show to date. My grandmother said "You look like bloated as if you've been found dead in a lake after several days of searching." Koreans are the most savage of all the Asians. My new show is all about being fresh off drugs and drinking and suicide and coming back to life - finally fished out of the river Styx. It's meta. It's magical. It's me.'
