I L-O-V-E Margaret Cho! I remember catching one of her stand-up routines in SF and I'd never laughed so hard in my life. She has a great way of combining San Franciscan-bred political awareness with incredible comedic timing.
I always thought she was really funny and I still remember her show from the 90's called "All-American Girl". I was also glad when she got her own show on Vh1 a few years back and I laughed at how the show had her parents and all of her weird friends.
Margaret Cho was born December 5, 1968 and raised in San Francisco. “It was different than any other place on Earth,” she says. “I grew up and went to grammar school on Haight Street during the ’70s. There were old hippies, ex-druggies, burnouts from the ’60s, drag queens, and Chinese people. To say it was a melting pot – that’s the least of it. It was a really confusing, enlightening, wonderful time.”
