Margaret Cho - Psycho
It’s hard to imagine the entire continent of Asia has never hosted a Margaret Cho live show. That will change when the Korean-American takes the stage in Singapore and Hong Kong this March. Over the years, the unapologetically outspoken comic has amassed a large following, most notably with the disenfranchised folks for her willingness to speak on sensitive and taboo subjects from racism to police brutality to violence against women to the Asian experience. Essentially with Cho, no topic is off limits. And we all prefer her that way.
