21 BEST THINGS TO DO IN L.A. THIS WEEK

Comedian Margaret Cho has been tackling some unfunny issues recently, including tweeting about being a former sex worker and discussing surviving sexual abuse as a child. Following her Grammy-nominated 2010 comedy music album, Cho Dependent, Cho has launched a "12 Days of Rage" video campaign leading up to her new single, "I Wanna Kill My Rapist." But even while sharing the darker moments of her life, and in a year of celebrity rape scandals, Cho still knows how to bring the humor. On her PsyCHO Tour, Cho has been waxing funny about her love of the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, her favorite sex toys, wanting to have a child at 46 and how she's the only Korean who can spoof Kim Jong Un at the Golden Globes and not wind up in a labor camp. The Wiltern, 3790 Wilshire Blvd., Koreatown; Sat., Nov. 14, 8 p.m.; $35-$55. (800) 653-8000margaretcho.com. —Siran Babayan
