Three time Grammy and Emmy nominee, comedian Margaret Cho has announced she will make her return to New York City in March to film her brand new Stand Up Comedy Special at The Gramercy Theater. These shows in the Big Apple will be her first in over 2 years.
Margaret has been criss-crossing the country with brand new material over the last several months and said: I'm so thrilled to announce that I will be filming my new special at the Gramercy Theatre in NYC on March 7th (additional show on March 6 will not be filmed) and I want you to come! This is my most exciting show to date and I can't wait to share it with you. This show is all about the insanity in the world – it's called "there's no "I" in Team, but there is a "Cho" in Psycho." I've been saving NYC just for this, so please join me for this party. It's going to be legendary!
Pre-sale starts on Friday, December 12th at 10:00 A.M. EST until Saturday, December 13 at 10:00 P.M. EST and the password is Moran. The general public on-sale will begin Monday, December 15 at 12:00 noon EST.

VIP tickets will also be available and include a Meet & Greet and picture with Margaret after the show. Show info is posted on http://www.margaretcho.com/
Margaret has toured all over the world and Bust magazine attended her show in Paris saying: "Ms. Cho put on a hysterically funny 90-minute set. It was the most explicit and painfully honest performance I've ever seen from her giving it 100%."
Recently, Margaret has been living in her hometown of San Francisco and giving back to the homeless community in honor of the late Robin Williams. Margaret was so inspired by Robin's activism that she has decided to get out on the streets herself in his honor for the work he did throughout his life with Comic Relief. "I found that I could not stop grieving Robin Williams and I spoke to my friend Michael Pritchard, who is a mutual friend of mine and Robin's and he said, "Don't grieve Robin, be Robin". So this is what I thought I should do. I should go and make a little Comic Relief, a little baby one. And I encourage anyone to do this in their town."
