The Grammy nominated comedienne is coming to the UK with her brand new tour from the 25th November until the 10th December.
Recently named one of Rolling Stone magazine’s 50 Best Stand-Up Comics of All Time, the five time Grammy & Emmy nominated US comedienne Margaret Cho will be bringing her latest show to the UK for a limited number of dates in November.
Margaret Cho’s latest show sees her tackling difficult topics with her own insight into issues such as addiction, abuse, activism and Asian-ness, dealing with it with sensitivity.
Talking about her new show, the comedienne said: “This is my sickest show to date. My grandmother said “You look like bloated as if you’ve been found dead in a lake after several days of searching.” Koreans are the most savage of all the Asians. My new show is all about being fresh off drugs and drinking and suicide and coming back to life – finally fished out of the river Styx. It’s meta. It’s magical. It’s me.”
It has also been announced that Cho’s new TV project, ‘Highland’, has been picked up for pilot by TNT Network. The show will chronicle what happens when two extended, dysfunctional Korean-American families who share the same patriarch must come together after tragedy strikes. As it turns out, the most reliable person in both families is the one who just got out of rehab.
The UK tour dates for ‘Fresh Off The Bloat’ are as follows:
Saturday 25th EDINBURGH – Queens Hall
Tuesday 28th BRISTOL – St George’s
Wednesday 29th BIRMINGHAM – Glee Club
Thursday 30th SALFORD – Lowry
Friday 1st SHEFFIELD – o2 Academy
Saturday 2nd BRIGHTON – Dome
Sunday 10th LONDON – o2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire
