She is a comedienne, actress, American/Korean, erm, recipient of a Gay Pride lifetime achievement award, a gentleman, a scholar, an acrobat but definitely – decidedly – not a manicurist. She is Margaret Cho and she’s pretty much our favourite not-quite-gay crossover comedienne with Oriental roots except for just one or two or maybe three people. Oh, and did we mention she’s funny enough to put your underwear in peril of spoiling? Just to prove that we know what we’re talking about, you need to go on an exploratory mission to London’s glittering Leicester Square Theatre (OK, so it’s not that glittering, it was good enough for Sandra Bernhard!). For you see, Her Majesty’s Border Control have deemed her fit to allow her entry to entertain us both at the Edinburgh Festival and in the capital for three nights starting 13th October. The show is called Cho Dependent, just don’t expect her to play nicely. Buy your tickets here.
