Win Tickets to See Margaret Cho in Concert!

By L.K. Regan

Hello RealJock members! We're pleased to announce we are giving away a pair of free tickets to see the fantastically funny (and raunchy) Margaret Cho in any one of a number of cities on her upcoming tour (a list of possible cities appears below, but note that airfare and hotel are not included). Want to see some great comedy from an icon of our community? Need a blockbuster plan for a first date? Entering our Margaret Cho ticket giveaway couldn't be simpler—any of our verified members are invited to enter. The deadline is this Friday, so send that entry soon!

If you know Margaret Cho, you know her comedy is a bracing discussion of ethnicity, gender and sexuality—she takes on all of it. In August she is releasing a new comedy and music album, Cho Dependent, which, her website says, will "tackle issues of sex, drugs, rock & roll (and lice)." For this latest project she collaborated with some music greats (Fiona Apple, Jon Brion, Tegan and Sara, Ani DiFranco, to name a few) to write and perform a collection of comedy songs. Her Cho Dependent Tour is set to include both new stand-up and live performances of some of the songs from the upcoming album. It's an event not to be missed.
