Quotes

Margaret Cho: These Christian groups are always up to some kind of bullshit. They're either trying to sneak Terry Chavo a Happy Meal, or going off about 'SpongeBob is gay!' Sponge Bob is a sponge. Obviously, transsexual. They're so busy all the time. I'm like, shouldn't you be preparing for the rapture? Aren't you supposed to be leaving soon? They have no right to call themselves Christians, because they have no Christianity to them. They have no kindness, they have no compassion, they have no charity. I ...

To slow and boring
19 January 2006 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I started watching this thinking I was going to see some funny stand-up. Probably my fault for not checking, but M Cho is just a bit too hung up in all her political and gay rights issues to really be funny in this show. Not that her willingness to tackle such issues is not admirable, but it just takes the fun out of the stand-up and belongs elsewhere. And could she deliver the lines any slower? I mean if you'd cut all the annoying pauses where she is just standing there waiting for applause that does not come you'd have like a 30 minutes shorter show. So if you are not into extremely politically oriented half serious stand-up you might want to give this one a miss.
