    So Extra: No Kidding Around with Margaret Cho

    So Extra: No Kidding Around with Margaret Cho

    Start flexing those pelvic floor muscles! We're feeling a big contraction coming on, which means it's time to bring this bonus content with comedian Margaret Cho talking more about being childless-by-choice into the world.

    Margaret Cho is a comedian, actor, musician, advocate, entrepeneur and artist. Right as she was starting her stand-up career at age 14, Margaret won a comedy contest to open for Jerry Seinfeld in the early ’90s. She performed over 300 concerts within two years. Arsenio Hall introduced her to late night audiences, Bob Hope put her on a prime time special and, seemingly overnight, Margaret Cho became a household name. Her groundbreaking, controversial ABC sitcom, All-American Girl (1994) soon followed. In 1999, her groundbreaking Off-Broadway one-woman show, I’m The One That I Want, toured to national acclaim and was made into both a best-selling book and feature film of the same name. Margaret returned to television in 2008 with the VH1 series, The Cho Show. 2010 culminated with another high honor, a second Grammy Award nomination for Comedy Album of the Year for Cho Dependent, her incredibly funny music album. Margaret’s creative side moved full speed ahead with an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actress on 30 Rock, where she played Kim Jong II. The five-time Grammy and Emmy nominee released her second studio album, American Myth, earning her another Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album. In 2017, Rolling Stone magazine named her one of the 50 Best Stand-Up Comics, calling her “the sort of funny, sex-positive feminist and LGBT activist younger comics continue to look up to.”
