Before queers started knocking each other over to line up for Kathy Griffin, San Francisco native Margaret Cho, the original ass-master, was the queen of cock-talk and hardcore queer rights activism. And she still is. The woman who embraces all the letters of the queer alphabet is back on the big screen, ready to attack the few taboos remaining after previous concert films I’m the One That I Want (2000), Notorious C.H.O. (2002), and Revolution (2004).

Cho Dependent, bearing the same name as Cho’s 2010 Grammy-award nominated comedy album, covers it all—from her stint on Dancing With the Stars, to Lady Gaga to the culture shock of moving to the deep south for Drop Dead Diva. In typical Cho fashion, the performance toggles between outrageous bedroom antics to self-deprecating tales of an outsider to impressions of her mother’s latest antics (yay!).

Come get a “ticket for gaywalking” with the only comedienne who can offend every demographic in our fair city, while somehow making us all laugh out loud. Help us celebrate our 2011 Frameline award winner, then spread the word about Lady Caca.
