Notorious C.H.O. made me laugh as long and hard as any movie I've seen this year.

If you can stomach her often escalating vulgarity, you'll laugh and laugh hard.

She can be funny even when she gets on her soapbox.

Cho's bisexuality supplies her with double ammo when making sex jokes, which are her specialty.

Cho's fearless in picking apart human foibles, not afraid to lay her life bare in front of an audience. Her delivery and timing are flawless.

Less structured and, as a result, funnier than Margaret's first!

The level of comic invention is surprisingly low, and the resultant amusement spotty at best.

Cho is one amusing caustic storyteller. Sharply hilarious and brimming with heart-rendering frankness, Cho exposes herself through the raw observations of the engagingly cheeky comedy concert film Notorious C.H.O....a fearless showcase that's smart

It's hard to quibble with a flick boasting this many genuine cackles, but Notorious C.H.O. still feels like a promising work-in-progress.

Margaret Cho reasserts her eminence as the funniest woman alive with her second performance film, Notorious C.H.O.

There's never a dull moment here. Notorious C.H.O. is a Genuine R.I.O.T.
