A week before tonight’s two shows at Zanies, Margaret Cho was co-grand marshal at the Las Vegas Pride Festival with Joan Rivers and Kathy Griffin. Here’s hoping we get to hear about how stretched Rivers’ face is. Well, hell, Griffin’s too. Cho’s tour, titled “Mother,” focuses on her mother’s unconventional parenting methods, and how society views maternal figures and strong women in queer culture. As raunchy and harsh as Cho’s shows get, there’s always a dialogue of acceptance — not to mention that she’s been an eminent figure in the LGBTQI community since the late ’90s. With too many TV shows to mention (OK, we’ll mention Drop Dead Diva and The Cho Show), three major comedy tours and several charity and support events, this bitch is a force to be reckoned with. Even if you don’t get a chance to make it out to her show, her blog is updated nearly every day with thought-provoking and hilarious material.
