Arts Commons, Jack Singer Concert Hall
Saturday, November 19, 2016
The Naughty Pre-Party: 7:30pm
Show Time: 9:00pm
Opener: Selena Luna
***For Mature Audiences***
Beginning with her early days in Southern California, comedian Margaret Cho has always been the Agent Provocateur of stand up. Never one to shy away from a taboo topic, there are literally no subjects off limits. Her socially aware, no-holds-barred brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader and a tolerant teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.
An accomplished performer in all formats, Margaret has conquered the worlds of film, television, books, music and theatre. Having been nominated for three Grammy Awards and one Emmy Award, her comedy tours are a constant sell-out both here and abroad. She’s had two shows debut Off-Broadway (I'm The One That I Want and The Sensuous Woman) and her last stand-up, psyCHO, was filmed at the historic Gramercy Theatre in New York City.
“It’s a wonderful thing to be known as a ‘safe haven’ for people. People come to see me, or buy my records and/or DVDs because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there. More than anything, that makes me really proud.” - Margaret Cho
Selene Luna’s stand-up comedy has led her to work alongside comedy legends Roseanne Barr and Robin Williams. Luna’s most celebrated stand-up credit has been opening for Margaret Cho’s 2012 MOTHER & 2014 PSYCHO Tours. When Luna’s not performing standup, she's a featured burlesque dancer on Dita Von Teese's Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray tour.
Come early for The Naughty Pre-Party, including: The Wrong Kind of Girls (Canada’s preeminent queer-feminist-ukulele-comedy band), The Imperial Sovereign Court of the Chinook Arch (the oldest gay organization still operating in the City of Calgary), and DJ Donna Dada (a staple DJ in Calgary since the 90's and editor of local FREQ magazine).
