Synopsis by Mark Deming
Leftist comedian Margaret Cho issues another salvo in her ongoing battle to laugh intolerant conservatives out of power in this performance documentary. Recorded during two dates during Cho's 2005 standup tour, Margaret Cho: The Assassin Tour features the acerbically funny comic discussing such subjects as the ongoing battle over gay marriage, the 2004 presidential election, the presidency of George W. Bush, the Terri Schiavo case, possible upsides of being raised in a restrictive culture, her mother's recent heart attack, and what happened when she was unexpectedly booked to entertain a Republican activist group. Margaret Cho: The Assassin Tour was the fourth concert film from the popular humorist.
