    This is my first time seeing Margaret Cho in person. I'm thrilled about it and would love to get feedback about others that have been. Any previews?

    I'd love to see her live. She's so crass, inappropriate, and so un-PC...I love it!

    I didn't see a paid show, but she spoke and did some comedy at the Millenium March on Washington, and I saw here there.

    I saw her live here in Vancouver about two years ago. It was her Assassin tour. She was so funny, and unlike Bill Maher, who just repeated what he had written down, Margaret Cho actually made jokes about the audience, and about Vancouver. It was really refreshing, and again, so funny. We're going to see her here again in 3 weeks.
    Have fun!

    She always twice as funny live as she is on DVD. Sometimes she will tour the comedy clubs to test out material for her tours. The small performances aren't advertised very far in advance, but if you catch wind of one, GO! I saw her when she was gearing up for the Assassin tour and then later in the tour itself. She was even more inappropriate in a small venue.icon_lol.gif

    I saw her last week. She premiered her new show 'Beautiful' here in Sydney Australia for the first time, for Mardi Gras.

    I almost wet my pants! It was hilarious! She is fantastic in every way! Great comedian, great spokesperson and always a giving out positive messages to all her fans!! Love her!

    Enjoy the show!

    I saw her a while back
    I don't know if she's doing the same show right now but
    it was more of a variety show with some very strange acts

    yeah she does a strip at the end
    but there was also a midget stripper icon_eek.gif

    and Kelly the "Biatch" Valley Girl drag queen

    I saw her here a few years ago. Because this is the home of Marshall University we have an arts schedule called the Marshall Artist Series. Being of Chinese descent she made some funny jokes about what was expected of her that evening. She was funny but I will say that she didn't have her act well timed. She had one joke about a diet that caused her to mess her pants while driving that went on way too long. She's very political (which I like) and overall engaging.

    I've seen her twice here in Norfolk, and she was hilarious both times - almost fell out of my seat. I got to see her for free the first time as a volunteer for Equality Virginia.

    Some of the new stuff you will see was very different. If you can believe it, she actually gets even more graphic - and there is a song (I wasn't crazy about it, but a friend of mine loved it).

    Have a blast!

    So the 1st couple of times I saw her it was funny! But NOW she isn't SO funny anymore. She reuses A LOT of her material over and over and over again! Just lame now!

    So if it's your 1st time, enjoy! After that, leave her alone!

    The Highlights of the Beautiful Show include:

    Finding out Margaret is married to a mysterious man.

    Her pretending to be Larry Craig doing his wide stance in the bathroom stall.

    Going to Australia with Kathy Griffin, Olivia Newton John and Cyndi Lauper.

    Finally, loved the 12:15 Fag Hag shuttle that picks up all the ladies as their gays are going home with another man.
