Margaret Cho: Straight Off The Bloat

Five time Grammy and Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho 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.

Margaret says “Fresh Off the Bloat is my sickest show to date. My grandmother said ‘You look 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.”
