Synopsis by Mark Deming
Comic Margaret Cho offers up a typically taboo-bursting performance in this comedy film, shot during a concert appearance in Seattle. In Notorious C.H.O., she offers up her own uncensored views on gay versus straight pornography, her experiences in an S & M club, the art of cross-dressing, and her desire to stage the world's first "slut pride" parade. Cho also take a slightly more serious detour to discusses issues relating to race, sex, and self-esteem issues. Notorious C.H.O. also features a brief appearance by Cho's mother, who has become a key character in her daughter's standup act.
