Margaret Cho performs at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on Wednesday, September 26.
From press release:
The Notorious C.H.O. (as she refers to herself in the title of her second show) received a GLAAD (Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) Award honoring her specifically, as “an entertainment pioneer who has made a significant difference promoting equal rights for all, regardless of sexual orientation or identity.” For addressing the concerns of women and women’s changing roles, Cho was granted the distinguished Gracie Allen Award. She was also featured on Remarkable Journey, a show highlighting the accomplishments of women of color. Although she spent a few years out of the (critical) public eye, Cho “redeemed her good name” by speaking candidly about her nightmare with network television on shows like NPR’s Fresh Air and Comedy Central’s Politically Incorrect — a far cry from the more mainstream Bob Hope-type circuit that jump-started her earlier career. Like a phoenix, the Notorious C.H.O. has risen to much fanfare and to the delight of a huge non-network television-watching following.
Tickets are $25 advance and $27 day of show – this is a reserved seat show. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 1 at 10 a.m. at www.jeffersontheater.com. The Jefferson Theater is located at 110 East Main Street Charlottesville, VA 22902.
