Overview

From her first moment onstage with her high school improv group, Margaret Cho knew that performing was her destiny. It didn't matter if she became rich or famous-she knew that being onstage and making people laugh would make her happy. In 1994, after paying her dues in comedy clubs across the United States, Cho landed a sitcom, All-American Girl, about a rebellious daughter in a conservative Korean-American household. Though it made television history as the first sitcom to feature a mostly Asian cast, the show was short-lived, and its failure hit Cho hard. In her early twenties, she struggled with low self-esteem, and drug and alcohol addiction. Ultimately, Cho rebuilt her confidence and decided to use her comedy as a cathartic vehicle to help others. Since then she has launched several popular comedy tours, written books, built a huge fan base, and has become, in the words of the Washington Post, "the patron saint of anyone who has ever felt like an outsider."
