I hate Margaret Cho.

If you five star this you are a racist!

Cho has reached Jeff Foxworthy-esque levels of milking a joke for decades: in her case, her ching-chong accent jokes about her mom. Seriously, move on. I don't hate her comedy overall, but these bits are fucking horrible.
Rodents of Unusual Size
Most of her most recent stuff is largely political. Beautiful was kind of amazing. She has a great story in that about how she went to the Tolerance Museum in Alabama and people were racist to her.

Yeah, this bit is about 10 years old, if not older. I was surprised it wasn't here. Didn't mean to start a war.

also: questionable tattoo judgement.

Her face makes me retch. Her comedy isn't much better.

women should all be attractive or not seen

I can't think of a better time to point this out. From the wiki article on Gwen Stefani's Harujuku girls:

"In an interview in the January/February 2006 edition of Blender magazine, American comedian Margaret Cho calls Stefani's Harajuku Girls a "minstrel show" that reinforces ethnic stereotypes of Asian women."

Now listen to her tell this joke again.

I think there's a difference between relating the story of one's own immigrant family to a general audience and exploiting the stereotypes of an ethnicity you aren't a part of to make a quick buck.

RomancingTrain
Nope, still minstrelry.

True ROUS, but Margaret Cho could have easily told this joke using a normal Korean accent and not stretching/flattening her face. She's not one to complain about negative asian stereotypes.

Rum Revenge
Yeah, it's pretty hypocritical of her to reinforce the negative stereotype of Asian Moms who are morbidly curious about gay ass porn. It's been a mark of shame for the entire Asian Mom community.

FABIO
If there was ever one comedian I hoped I'd never have to listen to again it's her.
phalsebob
If you one starred this you are a racist!

Konversekid
I would be seen as a racist, however, I think it deserves an extra star since she chinks her eyes up more when she does her impression.

theSnake
ass... master?? lol
TheSupafly
Margaret Cho is worth one more than no stars.
The New Meat
Remember in 2006 when Margaret Cho thought she could ride that Kelly/Shoes bandwagon back to cultural relevance?
CornOnTheCabre
