FDL Movie Night Presents: Margaret Cho

Comedienne, actress, singer and political commentator Margaret Cho is a longtime outspoken supporter of LGBT rights, campaigning actively against Proposition 8 and appearing at numerous equal marriage rights rallies. Her acid wit and sharp political jabs, as well as her ability to push boundaries and speak outrageous truths have gained her international acclaim.

Fresh off her reality sitcom, “The Cho Show” and her international “Beautiful” tour, Cho is currently working on a comedy music album and co-writing for the release with artists such as Tegan & Sara, Patty Griffin, Kaki King and The New Pornographers. Cho plans to release the album in 2010, in conjunction with her next national tour, and is currently prepping new material in clubs across the country.

If you’re in the LA area, you can catch Margaret at Largo tomorrow night, February 24th, where she’ll be debuting some of her songs with Susie Suh, Garrison Starr and Grant Lee Phillips. In March, Cho will be performing at South by Southwest and also co-hosting the GAYVN awards with Janice Dickinson. Her new series "Drop Dead Diva" will premiere this summer on Lifetime.
