Margaret Cho, Mother Tour, Fox Theater at Foxwoods
Critically-acclaimed comedienne, Margaret Cho, will make her return to Foxwoods on Feb. 1, 2013 at 8 p.m. to showcase her brand new stand-up show, "MOTHER," at Fox Theater. Cho's latest project offers up an untraditional look at motherhood, including how we look at maternal figures and strong women in queer culture. Considered her edgiest show to date, "MOTHER," is filled with riotous observations on race, drugs, celebrities, culture, politics and sexuality – gay, straight and everything in between – and of course, nothing is sacred.
Tickets are $30, $45, and $60, and are available for pre-sale on Ticketmaster and Comix on Thursday, Oct. 25, and for regular sale Friday, Oct. 26 at 10 a.m. The show is presented by Comix At Foxwoods and is intended for mature audiences only.
The two-time Grammy Award nominee recently proved her remarkable versatility when she was nominated for a Primetime Emmy award for "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series" for her hilarious stint on the award-winning sitcom, "30 Rock," where she acted as gender-bending North Korean leader, Kim Jong Il. As a long-time veteran of the comedy scene, Cho has established herself as one of the most daring stand-up queens in the industry. She currently stars in the popular Lifetime series, "Drop Dead Diva," and has embarked on multiple sold-out national comedy tours.
In 1999, she starred in her groundbreaking, off Broadway one-woman show titled "I'm the One That I Want." She took her show on a nation-wide tour, receiving positive reviews every step of the way. Her nationally-acclaimed showcase was then created into a best-selling book and feature film, which helped launch her career as a wildly successful Asian-American female comic.
Most known for her bold personality and fearless demeanor, Cho has never been one to turn her back against important causes. In June of 2011, she was recognized by LA Pride, where she received a Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing an individual whose lifetime body of work has left a lasting major imprint on the LGBT community. She has received other numerous awards and accolades for her unwavering dedication and contribution to many activist groups.
