Los Angeles, CA – Five time Grammy and Academy Award, Golden Globe & Emmy nominated comedian/actress Margaret Cho continues her wildly popular "Fresh Off The Bloat" tour in 2021. Margaret was awarded the 2020 Wowie (World of Wonder) trophy for Outstanding Comedian, currently stars in Netflix's "Good on Paper" alongside Iliza Shlesinger and their first-ever animated movie, "Over The Moon" with Ken Jeong & Sandra Oh. Cho has also appeared on NBC's long-running drama series "Law & Order:SVU" and stunned America by singing her way through the wildly popular break-out hit show The Masked Singer. Margaret was named one of Rolling Stone magazine's 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time (Rolling Stone HERE) while CNN chose her as one of the 50 People Who Changed American Comedy (CNN HERE ) . Margaret has received rave reviews for the show with the Chicago Tribune saying “Be it on-screen (“30 Rock,” “Drop Dead Diva”) or on stage, Margaret Cho has been one of the most exciting, unpredictable stand-up comics working for some time, and that hasn’t changed. If anything, the Asian-American female comedian’s voice has become more valuable than ever, given today’s social climate, and Cho’s material remains just as compelling, thanks in part to—and sometimes in spite of—her unapologetic delivery.”
“Fresh Off The Bloat” has traveled worldwide and is certainly her sickest stand-up comedy show to date. 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 Asianness. It's all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics. Aptly titled, “Fresh Off The Bloat,” Margaret says, ““Fresh Off The Bloat” 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.”
Additionally, Margaret's podcast - The Margaret Cho is returning with a special second season titled - Mortal Minority. Join Margaret Cho and guests as they unpack historic crimes like the 1871 Chinatown Massacre or the Fortune Teller Murders that unfortunately paved the way for the modern crimes we see today. Margaret will also discuss ways you can help combat hate and misinformation.
