Review: Margaret Cho spectacular at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury (Includes first-hand account)

Cho began her stand-up comedy show by making a few jokes about the Pope and his recent visit to America, as well as her support for planned parenthood.

She tackled the subject matter of gun violence, and she noted that the best way is “to kill each other with art.” She discussed Dr. Ken being the third Asian-family show ever, and she shared that there is a sexiness to Asian women.

Cho joked that when African Americans and whites fight, then Asians and Mexicans do not know what to do, yet they want to be on the winning side. The comedian noted that she doesn’t go to Canada as much, ever since her DUI, but now it has been fixed, prior to praising feminism in Canada for being strong.

She spoke about being abused from a young age (5 to 12 years ago), and that the worst thing that would happen to ISIS would be for women to kill them, prior to revealing other items on her bucket list, in an effort to fight injustice in the world.

Similar to her previous stand-up comedy show at Gramercy Theatre in New York City, Cho paid homage to her two “comedic parents,” the late Joan Rivers and Robin Williams, the latter of which she praised as a “tremendous humanitarian.” She also shared Howard Stern’s witty remarks about Rivers at her funeral. In return, Cho hailed Rivers as “the wind beneath her wings.”

Cho concluded her stand-up comedy show by performing two noteworthy tunes including “I Wanna Kill My Rapist,” showcasing her singing and songwriting ability to her Westbury audience.

The Verdict

Overall, Margaret Cho was sensational at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury. Her comedic writing was edgy, intense, but she handled herself extremely well, and the crowed inevitably loved her. She was able to blend current events in the media with her own beliefs, as well as family background. She earned 5 out of 5 stars for a excellent comedic performance.
