Margaret Cho In Concert (The SOB Overview)

Margaret Cho In Concert (The SOB Overview) - Northrup Auditorium, Minneapolis, MN

Comedian Margaret Cho In Concert is hilariously fierce. Giving an absolutely lucid, raunchy performance, the remarkably beautiful and rather svelte Cho is a gifted comic, whose timing has never been better.

Since Cho’s weekend act was actually to benefit District 202, a nonprofit youth center in the Twin Cities, I'll refrain from giving a regular review. However, I will say that this latter day humorist knocks practically every one of her jokes out of the ball park with biting, self-effacing wit and keen social insights.

Among the topics she tackled via hilarious riffs were airplane travel, India, Anna Nicole Smith, Britney Spears, growing up in San Francisco, growing up Korean American, President Bush and the war in Iraq. She's at her funniest when she contorts her rubber face, whether affectionately mocking her mother or describing lewd sexual acts.

Although I could have done without the protracted bathroom humor, this comedian has never been funnier than she is when engaging in thoughtful social commentary.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
