Margaret Cho brings new tour to UVic

Nov. 2 show on sale now for Farquhar Auditorium

Comedian Margaret Cho is never one to shy away from a difficult or even taboo topics.

Cho brings that flavour, and a brand new tour, to the stage at the University of Victoria’s Farquhar Auditorium on Nov. 2.

Cho has been nominated three times for Best Comedy Album at the Grammy Awards, and has appeared on TV shows like All American Girl, The Cho Show, 30 Rock and has had a starring role for six seasons in well-known TV series   Drop Dead Diva.

Of equal importance to Cho is her work in the non-profit sector, lending her name, time and work ethic to several charities, especially those involving gay rights and anti-bullying.

Tickets are now on sale and available online at tickets.uvic.ca, in person at the University of Victoria ticket centre or by calling 250-721-8480.
