Since landing a gig as the opening act for Jerry Seinfeld in the late 80s, Margaret Cho has become a comedic force to be reckoned with. A veteran comedian, Cho is notorious for boldly confronting issues of race, sex, politics, and aesthetics, leaving a slew of shattered stereotypes in her wake. Famous for her unbridled, in-your-face approach to humor, Cho revolutionized the roll of Asian-Americans in show business. But all that aside, did you know that she could sing?! For two nights at the Irvine Improve, Cho and Co. will deliver an evening crammed full of stand-up, sketches and music for an impromptu performance that will show you exactly what this award-winning comedian is all about.
