Attention all Cho-fans! Margaret Cho -- faghag, former tweaker, alcoholic, eater of her own feelings, ex Quentin Tarantino dater, failed sitcom lead, Korean American, raunchy stand-up genius, and all around funnywoman, will be entertaining once more on her new VH1 reality series, The Cho Show.
If you haven't seen her stuff before, here she is telling a heartwarming story about her dad.
I loved her earlier stuff (I'm the One that I Want; Notorious C.H.O.). Personally I've found her later stuff a bit too full of Lezzie Angst and her latest stuff just plain boring. But all comics lose the funny once they quit drugs and find happiness. I will give my Korean American sistah a chance, hopefully she doesn't gross me out.
The show is described as a "scripted reality sitcom" - so think Kathy Griffin, Living with Lohans, hopefully not as fake and doesn't have as many stunningly retarded lingering close-ups as The Hills - Follow her life and stand-up career blah blah parents, stylists blah blah and -- pay attention NOW -- 3'10" assistant / burlesque queen, Selene Luna (that's her below us) .. blah blah wild ride. In the first episode, she receives the "Korean of the Year" award.
