Margaret Cho Q&A

Margaret Cho

Famous Last Words Q&A

Five time Grammy & Emmy nominated US comedian Margaret Cho has much to celebrate as she was recently named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time and is set to launch her new comedy show, ‘Fresh off the Bloat’ this autumn.

A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and her razor sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism and Asian-ness. It’s all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics.

We helped her warm-up for her Sheffield date by asking for her ‘Famous Last Words’…

Last thing you did that made you feel good?
Finding proper containers to store sticky rice without it drying out. I felt like Marie Curie.

Last thing you’d want to be doing right now?
Climbing Mount Everest.

Ramen.

“Unitards are a passion”

Donald Trump.

Last time you shed a tear and why?
My friend and ex-room mate died suddenly. I am still not quite recovered from that.

Last the course… tips on loot, love & life?
To make money you have to put your head down and pretend like you are doing something. The more convincing you are, the more money you make.
To make love you have to put your head down and… it’s all the same thing I think.
Life – just live it!

Last but one … random question: Tell us about something that interests you that nobody else knows about. Like Gaelic football… or porcelain.
I love 80s aerobics like Jazzercise and Jane Fonda! Unitards are a passion.

Thank you and good night!
