Margaret Cho

Margaret Cho

“Comedy was all I ever wanted,” declares Cho in her memoir, I’m the One That I Want (2001). “When I began, I don’t think anyone believed I would go anywhere”, but the bisexual actress turned stand-up comedian has become one of the most prominent Asian Americans in show business and in glbtq culture.

Born to Korean immigrant parents on December 5, 1968 in San Francisco, California, Moran “Margaret” Cho draws from her “bi-cultural” experience as Korean-American as well as from everyday queer culture to forge her seductive style, which is enticing and amusing and never fails to surprise.
