It's Cho time!

US star Margaret comes to London

Outspoken American comedian Margaret Cho is to perform one date in London next month.

She will perform her new stand-up show We Will Shoot You, inspired by the recent accident in which US vice-president Dick Cheney injured a shooting companion.

The show, at Her Majesty’s Theatre on April 9, comes one day after her new film premiers at the London Lesbian and Gay and Film Festival.

She describes the comedy movie Bam Bam And Celeste as a ‘fag and fag hag Dumb and Dumber’, in which she and her opening act Bruce Daniels embark on a road trip from the American Midwest to New York City.

Cho plays Celeste and Mommy, the impersonation of her own mother that forms a staple of her stand-up routine

Cho – the first Asian American to star in her own sitcom, until it was unceremoniously dumped – last appeared in London 18 months ago with a five-week season of her State of  Emergency tour.

  • Omid Djalili has also announced another London date, at Shepherds Bush Empire on March 25.
