Margaret Cho "Assassins" Tour

Fri Jan 28, 2005 1:53 am

Anybody seen Margaret Cho's new stand up tour? I used to really like her but I saw her last tour and was underwhelmed. I think I might be over her. Any good reviews from her current tour? ...assuming it's started?

She is about as funny as that obnoxious red head girl comedian. (I forget her name) they both suckass.

I saw her first tour and thought she was a riot.

Then I saw her second show 2 years ago and thought she was just loud and obnoxious.

When she started out she was fresh and funny, but she really did plummet quickly into a morass of crap.

Aa61hvy: Do you mean Kathy Griffin, the one from Seinfeld where she rags on him as her stand up act? If she were in a cross walk, I'd accelerate  Wink/being sarcastic. God, she's horrible.

I love Margaret Cho. I definitely plan on getting tickets when she's in town. I saw her last year during a trial run for her tour that she did in the election swing states as well as in Provincetown, MA in August 2004. I didn't find it as funny as her previous performances. And I think she was on something because at times she would just start to talk sooo fast. Either way, I definitely plan on seeing this. God knows she's got plenty of material to work with.

I've noticed as well that she has trended towards just foul-mouth bathroom humor...which can be funny but is just not inventive or different at all. I think it takes a lot more effort to create an act that does not use foul language or bathroom/sex humor than to resort to those easy targets.

I agree with you on that, Maverick.

In her last show, she used the F-word in virtually every line, and after awhile she just became plain old annoying.

Although fabulous, she *is* getting a tad too political and a bit vulgar for my taste.

It's like Mommy...awww!
That's why we're here.

I generally like Cho's standup, but I think she overplays her gay/lesbian connections. It's as if she's decided she prefers being an icon to being extremely funny.
