Bio info on Cho from the Bijou's website:
"Born and raised in San Francisco, Margaret Cho started performing stand-up at age 16 in a comedy club called The Rose & Thistle above a bookstore her parents ran. Soon after, she won a comedy contest where first prize was opening for Jerry Seinfeld. She moved to Los Angeles in the early '90s and lived in a house with several other young performers. Still in her early twenties, Cho hit the college circuit, where she immediately became the most booked act in the market and garnered a nomination for Campus Comedian of The Year. Arsenio Hall introduced her to late night audiences, Bob Hope put her on a prime time special and, seemingly overnight, Margaret Cho has become a national celebrity. Now, she's written two books, become a sitcom and reality television starlet, broken into the music industry - very successfully, we might add - and become one of the funniest, most entertaining comedians in the industry."
