Movie Info

Leftist comedian Margaret Cho issues another salvo in her ongoing battle to laugh intolerant conservatives out of power in this performance documentary. Recorded during two dates during Cho's 2005 standup tour, Margaret Cho: The Assassin Tour features the acerbically funny comic discussing such subjects as the ongoing battle over gay marriage, the 2004 presidential election, the presidency of George W. Bush, the Terri Schiavo case, possible upsides of being raised in a restrictive culture, her mother's recent heart attack, and what happened when she was unexpectedly booked to entertain a Republican activist group. Margaret Cho: The Assassin Tour was the fourth concert film from the popular humorist.

Critic Reviews for Margaret Cho: Assassin

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (13)

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

Only for die-hard Cho fans.

September 8, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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.

September 7, 2005 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

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.

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.
