Mission Creek Festival: Margaret Cho
An accomplished performer in all formats, Margaret Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media” having conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music and theatre. She has three Grammy Awards and one Emmy nomination under her belt, and continues her pursuit of all things creative. Never one to shy away from a difficult, or even ‘taboo’ topic, her socially aware brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.
Equally as important as her art is the causes she is passionate about. Margaret is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights, anti-bullying campaigns and the homeless community, which grew out of a tribute to her dear friend, Robin Williams. In every segment of her life, Margaret is honest, forthright, passionate, uproarious and always entertaining. With her latest Concert Special, psyCHO, which was filmed at New York City’s Gramercy Theatre, Margaret Cho is at her very best.
