Margaret Cho joins us to tell us about hosting San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair; this year it is going world-wide and virtual so you can join in from home.
It turns out she’s a total bottom.
We hear about Margaret’s lo-fi, low-key celebrity gossipy podcast "The Margaret Cho" on the EARIOS network. She gives us her take on social media as a less than desirable medium for comedy and serves up some hope by announcing that she has live shows scheduled for next year for "Fresh Off the Boat" touring world-wide.
Heklina asks Margaret about her work with comedienne Gerri Lawlor on the Be Robin movement in commemoration of Robin Williams. They remember Gerri and we find out a little about Margaret’s forthcoming book "The Mayor of Haight Street" which you can find via Chronicle Books later this year.
Lady Bunny alert! Or warning. Heklina and Margaret talk about some of their biggest influences including Phyllis Diller, Joan Rivers, Richard Pryor, and Don Rickles, and Lady Bunny (I didn’t say they were good influences).
Plus what happened to all the Silver Lake Gays?
P.S. as in they all went to Palm Springs and that’s where I’m headed, too. Tune in to hear all about it.
