Margaret Cho, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. There’s your 1994 show “All-American Girl.” Your stand-up comedy concerts like “I’m The One That I Want” and “Notorious C.H.O.” Your shows “The Cho Show,” and most recently, “Drop Dead Diva.” I could go on, but I don’t want to embarrass you with your own awesomeness.
Whether you caught her in the ’90s or in the aughties, Cho is inescapable — and undeniably funny. This summer, she’s releasing her first album of “comedy music,” Cho Dependent, on which she got to perform with the likes of Fiona Apple and Ani DiFranco. Lucky bitch!
Cho was kind enough to take some time out of her busy schedule to talk to us about stand-up comedy, writing songs about homicidal ex boyfriends and camel toe. Keep reading »
“It’s very weird, isn’t it, how rock and roll is very homophobic in a lot of ways. Women are given a lot of freedom to define their sexuality. I mean, Lady Gaga is able to pretty much do anything she wants. And Madonna, before her, was free to play around with gender roles. I don’t think the same flexibility exists for men, even though some of the greatest rock stars have been pretty androgynous, like Freddie Mercury or David Bowie — although Mercury wasn’t really out and Bowie was straight. There’s definitely a double standard.”
Only Margaret Cho could make history as the first woman ever to grace the cover of Unzipped Magazine, the so-called magazine for men who love men. She appears on the cover along with porn star Ricky Sinz, in bondage gear. “Margaret Cho transcends sexual stereotypes,” said Dustin Tyner, Group Publisher for Unzipped Media. “The energy and sex appeal Margaret and Ricky bring to the article is amazing. The photos are electric, and we’re thrilled to have two iconic sexual adventurers on the cover of our ‘Hot Issue.’” Of course, Cho finds a way to make this somehow oddly funny and sexy at the same time. This is why Cho is my hero. [Unzipped] Keep reading »
Oh, joy! Margaret Cho visited “The View” this morning and dished all about how she cannot have an orgasm from intercourse, so she hightailed it to her doctor’s office to get a bead of collagen injected into her G-spot.
The G-spot shot didn’t work at all, unforch. But I’ll give you one guess as to what still does make Cho come! (Even pregnant and prudish Elisabeth Hasselbeck cracks a smile.) [via Jezebel] Keep reading »
Obviously, we are big Tina Fey, Amy Sedaris, and Aisha Tyler enthusiasts. So we immediately clicked on this Huffington Post poll about 15 of the leading ladies of funny. But—wait—it asks readers to rate the women on their looks? Even HuffPo acknowledges that it’s a “poll of ridiculous proportions.” Sure, these women are beautiful. But it’s their wit, slapstick antics, and all-around hilariousness that stole our hearts. So while we wished they asked, “Who’s the funniest comedienne?” we decided to take a look at the current rankings. What we found may surprise you. Keep reading »
