I'm the One That I Want, based on her show of the same name, is filled with dead-on insights about the experience of being a woman with attitude, of flowing with the highs and lows of life, and of creating one's own identity and acceptance. It is every bit as hilarious, shocking, and irreverent as she is.
"Hilarious and deeply engrossing"
Margaret Cho has a way of disarming her audience, dismantling preconceptions, and delivering punchlines that sting with wit and veracity. She derives much of her material from her upbringing as a second generation Korean American in San Francisco.
"Warning! I nearly crashed my car over this one"
These high-impact standup performances are all about violence. On the screen, in their dreams, and in their living rooms, these insightful comedians take a licking and keep on kicking whether they're getting advice from action-film master John Woo, confronting vicious dogs, or getting firebombed by terrorists!
These red-hot standup performances from the Un-Cabaret feature stories about live sex acts. No kidding! Visit a live sex show with David Cross, a porn movie shoot with Greg Fitzsimmons, and go behind the scenes to see what life is like for a phone sex operator when that operator is Margaret Cho! Insightful and hilarious, these performances are also very, very dirty.
Margaret has a close encounter with a Hollywood monster. Her mother sees her perform live for the first time and tells Margaret about the best Mother's Day ever in this performance, recorded at the Un-Cabaret Anniversary Show.
