Editorial Reviews

For the past 20 years, Margaret Cho has used her stand-up comedy to deconstruct and ridicule social and political norms. In Drunk with Power, Cho's first comedy album, she plants the seeds of what are to become her main points of focus throughout her celebrated career. A second-generation Korean American, Cho wrestles with a refreshing frankness about racial tension in America, the struggles womanhood, and her less-than-traditional upbringing. Performed with an incredible energy and wit, Cho's Drunk with Power will have listeners in tears with laughter.

Publisher's Summary

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. Cho will keep you laughing from beginning to end of this audio, as she talks about everything from growing up in the City by the Bay ("Some people are raised by wolves - I was raised by drag queens"), to her sexual hang-ups (about which she's surprisingly candid), to passing a kidney stone (no one has ever described it quite like this!).

For Adults Only: Explicit language. Must be 18 years of age to purchase.

Warning! I nearly crashed my car over this one

I laughed so hard over the "Gwen" story I nearly wrecked my car on the freeway. Don't listen to this one unless you can drive responsibly while completely losing it.

Be careful driving!

So funny! Especially the "Gwen" episode! I, too, almost wrecked while driving and listening to this selection. It was so funny that it caused me, just recovering from pneumonia, to have an enormous coughing fit and almost wreck my car. I had to pull over so that I could listen to the rest of it. Cho is an excellent mimic. I particularly love her imitation of her mother. Definitely buy this one!

Loved it!!

I have always been a fan of Margaret Cho and this was another of her great works. I recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor.

Funny but way too short

This was the shortest book I ever listened too save your money and look her up skits on you tube. Perhaps it's might fault I thought it was a memoir of her life just quick sound bites of stage performances.

Brilliant

This performance is amazing. I've listened to it several times over the last year and each time I've thoroughly enjoyed it. Very, very funny woman... and what makes it so good is how she talks about things that are so "real" and yet finds such humor in them. Genius.
