NEW YORK, NY – July 20, 2015 – SHOWTIME will debut MARGARET CHO: psyCHO, the latest show from renowned three-time Grammy and Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho on September 25th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Filmed in March at the Gramercy Theater in New York City, Cho returns to the stage in front of a live audience in this provocative and hilarious performance.
Never one to shy away from a difficult or taboo topic, Cho considers nothing off limits. The witty comedian keeps her audience laughing with her notorious observational humor and candid commentary on her personal life. From singlehood to Boko Haram to female empowerment, Cho tackles difficult subjects with sensitivity and razor sharp insight. Part of the show includes touching tributes to her “father in comedy,” Robin Williams and her “mother in comedy,” Joan Rivers. A pioneer in the comedy world, Cho doesn’t take anything for granted in this eclectic stand-up routine.
“The audience at my shows don’t necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans,” says Cho. “I seem to be a secure alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”
From Clownery Productions Inc. and Levity Productions, MARGARET CHO: psyCHO is executive produced by Margaret Cho, Judi Brown-Marmel, Norman Aladjem, Neil Sheridan, Reg Tigerman, Sarah J. Martin, Stacy Mark and Heidy Vaquerano.
