Los Angeles, CA – July 2013 - Emmy & Grammy- nominated comedian and actress, Margaret Cho is set to return to the road this September in support of her new stand-up comedy show called MOTHER. MOTHER is a complicated and completely original take on sex, queer politics, drugs, guns, identity and madness, proving time and time again, boundaries uncrossed are meaningless. Nothing is sacred, least of all, this MOTHER.
The cornerstone of MOTHER revolves around Cho’s long-suffering Korean mom and a staple of her shows, Young-Hie Cho. “It’s great because I get to put a lot of emphasis on my own mother,” Cho explains. “My mother did not prepare me for the world. First - I was named the poetic korean name "moran" which was perfect for the kids at school to call me "moron" and set me up for a good quarter century of therapy. However, I can clean a fish with my bare hands. So there are pros and cons of being from an Asian immigrant family.”
Margaret has toured MOTHER in various U.S. markets as well as extensive UK & Australian treks with Bust magazine attending her show in Paris. “Ms. Cho put on a hysterically funny 90-minute set. It was the most explicit and painfully honest performance I’ve ever seen from her giving it 100%.” MOTHER will visit intimate clubs & theatres beginning September 6 at The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. All dates go on sale August 2 with a pre-sale beginning Monday, July 29. Click here for all tour info: http://www.margaretcho.com/
