Margaret Cho: Assassin Reviews

We're told she's 'controversial,' but honestly, all she does is lob obvious cheap shots that do nothing but sanction her audience's status quo. Where's the controversy in that?

You know, the surest way to stop being considered 'edgy' is to brag constantly about how edgy you are. Get over yourself and get back to writing good jokes.

I saw Cho perform much of this material live [...] and found it bracingly hilarious. The movie she has made of it is an entirely different matter.

Pointed sociopolitical commentary that's thoughtful and impassioned, if not always hilarious.

standard-issue platitudes about media hype and Republican hypocrisy that you've likely heard many times before from many others.

Anger is the gasoline of stand-up comedians, the fuel that gets them revved. But just as too much gas will flood a carburetor, an overdose of anger can stall a comic's inspiration.

Inspiration is running thin in comedian Margaret Cho's fourth concert film, a routine stand-up set that compares poorly to her oft-hilarious first two.

If Margaret Cho's act shows no signs of getting old, it's because the world is kind enough to provide her with sufficient lunacy to fill countless concert tours.

Her savage but empowering take on gay life is sufficiently sidesplitting to smooth over the weaker spots.

Much of this feels like pandering to her liberal audience, as she approaches subjects like reproductive and gay rights without offering many new -- or funny -- observations.

Though Cho occasionally connects with her targets, more often than not she seems as intolerant and hate-filled as she accuses them of being -- and that's not funny.

Ms. Cho's commentaries come across as mere rants, lacking the fresh comedic spin necessary to carry a concert film.

Not as personal as some of her previous tours, focusing instead on social commentary about today's headlines, but she still manages to get in some great lines.

Soft in the middle, and none of Cho's stories here take on an epic scope....[Yet] the comedienne remains endearingly naughty.

[Cho] redoubles her invectives against the religious and political right with a fearlessness that is breathtaking.

A terrific mime with amazing expressiveness, Cho has a fertile, untrammeled imagination that shapes vignettes and one-liners that unfailingly hit their intended targets.

Anyone who can compare Reagan's funeral to Weekend at Bernie's and John Kerry to an Ent, one of Tolkien's talking trees, deserves an audience on both sides of the aisle.
