Today on our podcast, we talk to the one and only Margaret Cho.
The Korean-American Mash-Up Margaret Cho is undoubtedly a pioneer among pioneers. She is a comedian, singer, songwriter, artist, and activist, and that hardly begins to describe her. She invited us to her home to hang with her dogs, dish on Joan Rivers, and get real on why it’s funny when she mocks her mom and what she thinks about the kimchi at Whole Foods. They say you should never meet your heroes, but they were wrong about Margaret Cho.
Oh, and have you ever wanted to know what a sculpture of Joan Rivers made of the trash from female comics looks like? We’re here to oblige. By the amazing Jason Mecier. Yes, that is Phyllis Diller’s Lanacane.
