Margaret Cho is Coming to Vienna Again with a New Tour After Personal Turmoil

Blunt and fearless, Margaret Cho is a real groundbreaker in her field of comedy, getting a rise from audiences since exploding on stage in the early 1990s.

Tirelessly taking on controversial subjects with scathing observations has become her trademark, as well as criticizing current affairs. Recently named one of the 50 best stand-up comedians by Rolling Stone magazine, she has lived through drugs, alcohol and suicide attempts, and launched what she herself calls “her sickest tour yet,” Fresh Off the Bloat.

Last on tour in 2013, Cho’s new material will focus on politics, her experiences with addiction and the challenges she faces as an LGBT activist, feminist and Asian woman. The title of her new show was inspired by Cho’s grandmother, who said the comedian was as bloated as if she’d been “found dead in a lake after several days of searching”. This is where Margaret Cho must get her humor from.
