    The new special from Margaret Cho, “PsyCHO”, hits Showtime September 25


    Showtime will debut Margaret Cho: psyCHO, the latest show from renowned three-time Grammy and Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho on September 25. Cho’s latest special was filmed back in March at the Gramercy Theater in New York City. In her latest, Cho touches on topics such as singlehood to Boko Haram to female empowerment. Part of the show includes touching tributes to her “father in comedy,” Robin Williams and her “mother in comedy,” Joan Rivers. “The audience at my shows don’t necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans,” says Cho. “I seem to be a secure alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”
