69 - Margaret Cho

Aug 03, 02:26 AM
Rolling Stone Magazine ranks Margaret Cho as one of the 50 greatest stand-up comedians of all time. 

After being bullied as a kid, Cho became a stand up as a teenager. She's been working at it ever since. 

Cho blazed a trail for Asian American women in comedy. Her 1990's ABC sitcom "All-American Girl" broke new ground. 

In this podcast extra with "The Issue Is:," we discuss Margaret's new podcast "The Margaret Cho," her sources for news, and her conservative friends. 

We talk about comedy in the social media era, her process for constructing a joke, and what candidates she's favoring in 2020. 

The whole time, she's joined by her puppy!

"The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson" airs on TV Fridays at 10:30pm on FOX 11 Los Angeles and Saturdays at 6:30am on KTVU FOX 2.
