  1. She has something to say to everyone, and one can only hope that she is preaching to more than her choir of devoted fans.
  2. Even those who may agree with Cho's agenda are never allowed to forget that it is an agenda.
  3. She has tackled difficult subjects with sharp wit, but this self-congratulatory set falls well short of our ensuing expectations.
  4. It's hard to see why her audience seems so much more rabid than that of other, funnier comics. The secret seems to be in her appeal to the gay community.

    Inspiration is running thin in comedian Margaret Cho's fourth concert film, a routine stand-up set that compares poorly to her oft-hilarious first two.

    Assassin is the listless signature on her career-long comedic suicide note.

    Margaret Cho is tied with Dane Cook as the most consistently grating, phoned-in, fake, irritating, trashy and unfunny stand up comic in show business. This title does nothing to improve my opinion of her and I feel like I did her a big favor by even viewing it. Tripe. Expand
