Actress, comedian, activist, and musician are only a few of the words used to describe the many talents of Margaret Cho. Born and raised in San Francisco during the late 1960s and into the 1970s, her experiences growing up surrounded by hippies, drag queens and ex-druggies shaped her individuality and desire to share her unique humor with those around her. At the age of 16, Margaret began performing on stage and soon launched into a career of entertaining audiences after winning a comedy contest that landed her in the opening slot for Jerry Seinfeld.
Margaret’s career spans more than 25 years and includes multiple national and international tours including Notorious C.H.O. (1999), which was recorded and released as a feature film, later picked up by Showtime. Revolution (2003) became her third sold-out national tour and landed her a Grammy Award nomination for Comedy Album of the Year. In 2010 Margaret received yet another Grammy nomination for her album Cho Dependent, where she collaborated with artists such as Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird and Grant Lee Phillips, to name a few. This album introduced a surprising musical side to Cho, entangled with her comedic genius, making it a huge success. More recently, Margaret released American Myth (2016) as a follow up to Cho Dependent. Cho says the album is “my glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love and hate.” Margaret can also be found alongside Melissa Rivers on the E! Network’s Fashion Police.
