Margaret Cho / The Chelsea / Las Vegas / October 8 / Tickets
Margaret self-released Cho Dependent on her own Clownery Records, and was encouraged by the acclaim. There are still only a handful of people putting out albums of comedy music. In 2011, Margaret released the live concert film of Cho Dependent, which also had its cable network debut on Showtime. Audiences who caught these performances live can attest that Cho hasn’t lost any of her edge.
In 2012, Margaret spent whatever free time she had crafting her all new standup show, the uproariously named MOTHER. It kicked off with both a US and European tour. According to Margaret, “MOTHER offers up an untraditional look at motherhood and how we look at maternal figures and strong women in queer culture. There’s nothing we don’t discuss, including race, drugs, sexuality – gay-straight-everything in between, celebrity, culture, politics – nothing is sacred – least of all this MOTHER.”
