Margaret Cho - Notorious C.H.O. (2002)
Critic Reviews for Margaret Cho - Notorious C.H.O.
This is hardly big-screen stuff.
Has enough laughs to make it worthwhile for Cho's most devoted fans.
A raunchy and frequently hilarious follow-up to the gifted Korean American stand-up's I'm the One That I Want.
A movie that will surely be profane, politically charged music to the ears of Cho's fans.
Audience Reviews for Margaret Cho - Notorious C.H.O.
I'm glad that Margaret Cho has faded away. It is amazing how she was able to recycle one decent set into two feature films and healthy paydays doing stand up shows across the country. Cho certainly received the benefit of being one of the first to be the comedic "hag" to her gay audience and the novelty pushed her to grand levels in my appearance. Destined to be a footnote in history.
A glorious sexually charged stand up that cracks you up til you hurt.
Margaret Cho is raunchy. Not a bad thing necessarily especially since she is so extraordinarily honest about herself and the observations she makes about sex, relationship, family and self-love (yes, both kinds). The Notorious C.H.O. is more of a platform for her call to arms for tolerance and living without fear. She touches on the attack on New York and at the time of the taping was probably one of the first jokes made after 9/11. And she campaigns for all people who are minorities whether based on race, sexual orientation, body type, social status, etc. to stop believing in all the ad campaigns and prejudices and start loving themselves to hilarious effect. Unfortunately, this doesn't come close to the bravery of I'm The One That I Want. No where in Notorious does she come close to the depth of soul-searching and honest reflection of herself as she did in I'm The One, which in itself is a hard act to follow. Notorious C.H.O. is more frivolity and less substance, but that's just fine this time around. With all the chaos in the world that Cho mentions it's wonderful to just sit back and have someone this talented keep you stitches for 90 minutes.
