Korean comedienne to Oslo / Entertainment / The Foreigner

Korean comedienne to Oslo. US-Korean Margaret Cho is visiting the Norwegian capital this month with a new English-language comedy show as part of her first European tour. The new stand-up show, ‘MOTHER’ is reportedly taking an untraditional angle when looking at motherhood. Referencing queer culture, it also covers how people regard strong women and maternal figures, the press release states. What is probably Ms Cho’s “edgiest show to date is filled with riotous observations on race, drugs, sexuality ‒ gay-straight-everything in between. Celebrity, culture, politics ‒ nothing is sacred ‒ least of all this MOTHER,” write the promoters.

The new stand-up show, ‘MOTHER’ is reportedly taking an untraditional angle when looking at motherhood. Referencing queer culture, it also covers how people regard strong women and maternal figures, the press release states.

What is probably Ms Cho’s “edgiest show to date is filled with riotous observations on race, drugs, sexuality ‒ gay-straight-everything in between. Celebrity, culture, politics ‒ nothing is sacred ‒ least of all this MOTHER,” write the promoters.

The soon-to-be 45-year-old comedienne’s family originates from Korea. Raised in San Francisco, her Methodist minister grandfather ran an orphanage in Seoul during the 1950-53 Korean War.

According to her biography, Ms Cho describes her appearance as likening that of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il. She once became his impersonator in American satirical TV sitcom ‘30 Rock’, which starred American actor Alec Baldwin, amongst others.

Ms Cho will be appearing with her ‘MOTHER’ show at Oslo’s Latter Teater on Sunday 15 December.
