Margaret Cho

Standard

Margaret Cho’s career in show business started with her teenage comedy club appearances and really took off when she began to land minor TV and film roles. Between her comedy tours, memoirs, albums, clothing lines, burlesque dancing, reality show appearances, and guest roles on 30 Rock and former North Korean dictators Kim Jong-Il and Kim Jong-Un, she has simultaneously become one of the United State’s most visible Asian-American women and one of its most outspoken bisexual celebrities. Her prominence is such that she was awarded her own day in her home city of San Francisco. Cho’s brand of comedy coexists with her anti-racist, body acceptance, and pro-LGBT activism, and she draws her material for both from her experiences facing discrimination for her ethnicity, weight, and sexuality.

Cho has her own Wikiquotes page here; her home page – complete with social media links – can be found here.
