One of the best stand-up Comics of All-Time
Rolling Stone recently named Margaret Cho one of the best stand-up comics of all time, and Whistler Pride and Ski Festival is the place to catch her for A Night Of Comedy on Wednesday, January 24th. You can win tickets to see Margaret through our contest. (details below)
“I’m heading to Whistler because I want to freeze my tits off and heard this is the place to do that right now” says Cho on her Twitter post. Talking about her tour, “Fresh Off The Bloat” and self described as her sickest show to date, Cho references her grandmother saying, “you look bloated as if you’ve been found dead in a lake after several days of searching”.
Best known for her stand-up comedy, Cho is also an actress, fashion designer, author, and singer-songwriter. In 2012 she was nominated for an Emmy Award for her starring role as Dictator Kim Jong-il on 30 Rock.
Margaret is an active and frequent supporter of LGBT rights. In response to a court challenge regarding same sex marriage in San Francisco in 2004, Cho started the Love is Love is Love website promoting the legalization of gay marriage in the United States.
In 2007, Cho hosted the True Colors Tour, which traveled across the US and Canada and included headliners like Cyndi Lauper, Debbie Harry, Erasure, Rufus Wainwright, Rosie O’Donnell to mention just a few. Proceeds raised went to the Human Rights Campaign, PFLAG, and the Matthew Shepard Foundation. After same sex marriage became legal in California, Margaret Cho was deputized by the City of San Francisco to perform marriage in that city.
