Comedy sensation Margaret Cho has announced her 2023 “Live and LIVID!” Tour.

She stars in Hulu’s well-reviewed rom-com movie -“Fire Island” (People’s Choice Award and Gotham Award winner) with SNL alum Bowen Yang, in Awkwafina’s Nora From Queens, and with Iliza Shlesinger in Netflix’s “Good on Paper.” 

Cho was also part of Netflix’s 2022 “Stand Out Comedy Special” and “Over The Moon” with Ken Jeong and Sandra Oh, which was nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award. 

The cherry on the cake may be her inclusion in Vogue Magazine’s “9 best female comedians of all-time” alongside other comedic icons Joan Rivers, Gilda Radner, and Wanda Sykes. 

Cho is a five-time Grammy and Emmy-nominated comedian and actress. “Live and LIVID is a show celebrating my 40 years as a stand-up comedian,” she said. “I will be radiating rage about homophobia, sexism, racism, and the fight to stay alive in a culture that is killing us daily. You will love seeing me Live and LIVID! This is living! Come through life!”

Cho has also appeared on NBC’s long-running drama series “Law & Order: SVU” and stunned America by singing her way through the wildly popular break-out hit show “The Masked Singer.  “

Additionally, Cho was named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s “50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time” while CNN chose her as one of the “50 People Who Changed American Comedy.”

“I was inspired by Margaret. I got my start in comedy because of Margaret,” said Ken Jeong. “When I was in medical school and being her opening act at university inspired me to do this full-time. I would always ask Margaret, ‘Should I quit being a doctor? Should I quit medicine?’ I was so tortured, and I know I annoyed her. And she was so patient with me and so loving. It was just like a sibling – and it got me through my own internal confidence crises,” he elaborated.

“Margaret really is a pioneer in so many ways. Every Asian-American comedian owes a debt of gratitude to Margaret. Also, when I developed my own show, Dr. Ken, I had Margaret as my character’s sister for a reason,” Jeong remarked.

A pioneer among women in comedy, Cho doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and razor-sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism, and Asianness. It’s all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics.
