Biography

Comedienne known for her feminist stance and activism for gay rights. Born and raised in San Francisco’s free-spirited city center and exposed to the diverse culture and liberal attitude that prevailed in the ’70s. Began nationwide touring at the age of 16 and before the completion of high school. Experimental approach to drugs and sex, and widely recognized as a “fag hag,” which provided her initial core audience. After a precipitous rise to recognition in the ’90s, a brief flirtation with Hollywood’s two-faced television networks resulted in an early identity crisis and eventually led to her return to the roots of her public popularity in stand-up for progressive audiences.
Cho is probably now considered the first lady of left wing comedy, dealing with the edgier issues of gender, race, drugs, wanton sexuality etc. In her own words: “I don’t play violin… I didn’t f**k Woody Allen.”
