Korean America's Sweetheart 

The undeniable charm of comedy queen Margaret Cho is as potent as her career is monumental. Since cutting her teeth in an overtly white-bread, male-dominated comedy scene during the early '90s, Cho continues to exert triumphant staying power with her bodacious brand of nothing-is-taboo comedy. As a figurehead for the LGBTQ movement, her continuous efforts in equal-rights activism and philanthropy often bind her audience to her craft. In her routines Cho has tackled everything from race and sexuality to her own tales of growing up an outsider as a Korean American. Whether it’s playing Kim Jong-il on 30 Rock or exploring the downright insanity of motherhood in her latest standup show, Mother, Cho’s legend ripples through the collective pop consciousness. See Cho at the Lumiére Place Theater (999 North Second Street) tonight at 8 p.m. or 9:30 p.m.; tickets are $45 to $60 and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com.
