January 23, 2017 The extremely talented and funny woman, Margaret Cho, is bringing her Psycho tour to the Seattle area this Friday, January 27 for a sold out show at the Tulalip Resort Casino in Tulalip, WA.
Margaret Cho is well known for her humor, but she’s also known for her work as an actress, fashion designer, author, and a Grammy nominated singer-songwriter. But she’s not just comedic fluff either, Cho is also an activist who’s very passionate about the causes that mean so much to her; anti-racism, anti-bullying, advocating for the homeless and gay rights. She’s given many people a voice and has also spoken out numerous times against sexual violence on Facebook and Twitter which has helped many fans and victims find a voice and speak out by sharing with her and others who’ve been a victim of rape or sexual abuse (hashtags #12daysofrage #tellyourstory).
Cho got her break in comedy in the 90’s and through the ups and downs is still a driving force today. She’s done numerous stand-up tours Notorious C.H.O., Revolution, Beautiful, Mother and the Psycho tour to name a few. She’s been on the television shows All-American Girl, The Cho Show, and Drop Dead Diva. In between it all, she’s also found her musical voice and released Cho Dependent and American Myth.
Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho has been nominated for her fifth career Grammy nomination in the Best Comedy Album category today for her latest studio album, American Myth. American Myth is the follow-up to her 2010 Grammy nominated debut album Cho Dependent and is Margaret’s first new music in over 6 years via her Clownery Records label. To order click here.
I’m thrilled to receive this nomination and I share this honor with Garrison Starr and Roger Rocha and all the other artists who contributed to this album. Also it’s going to be a blast to be on the red carpet reporting on all the fashions first hand as an undercover (sort of) officer for Fashion Police! – Margaret Cho
You can view all four videos off the album below; “Anna Nicole,” “Ron’s Got a DUI,” “Fat Pussy” and the controversial “(I Want To) Kill My Rapist.”
“I am extremely proud to release American Myth. This is an album of anthems and showcases my first efforts as a composer. I made it with my longtime collaborator Garrison Starr and an incredible and inspiring crew of artists. It is my glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love and hate. “ – Margaret Cho
