Hi, I'm Margaret Cho! I'm an Emmy and Grammy-nominated comedian, actress and activist. Soon after starting my stand up career, I won a comedy contest where the first prize was to open for Jerry Seinfeld. From there, I moved to LA in my early twenties and hit the college circuit, performing over 300 concerts within two years.
My big breaks came when Arsenio Hall introduced me to late night audiences and Bob Hope put me on a prime time special. TV soon followed where I got to star in the first Asian-American sitcom on ABC called All American Girl. I was also one of the first to star in a reality sitcom, The Cho Show on VH1 as well as the Lifetime TV series Drop Dead Diva for six seasons. This past year I became a special guest host on E!’s Fashion Police, and I'm also developing “Highland,” an hour long dramedy for tv.
As a musician, I'm excited that my second music album American Myth is nominated for a Grammy. American Myth is my first collection of music in six years. The album is my glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love and hate.
Outside of my artistic life, I love supporting causes that are important to me. You'll find me being very active in anti-racism, anti-bullying, and advocating for the homeless and gay rights campaigns.
