    She (Cho) can tell a joke, mimic, offer commentary, play cute, play ugly and be so hilariously absurd that tears will run down your cheeks.

    We're in a golden age of comedy, and one of the reasons is Margaret Cho.
  3. Several times while watching the movie I laughed until the tears were running down my face.
  4. A wickedly, punishingly funny movie.
