San Francisco’s Margaret Cho Campaigns To Be Next Co-Host on ABC’s The View.

[The effervescent native would be a grand addition to a show I don’t watch. Too poor for television. Alas, I’ve always enjoyed Cho’s independent, multi-dimensional outlook, which should be featured in the media as often as possible. You know, for parity, relatability and posterity.]

San Francisco native, Margaret Cho, breaks it down like a cardboard box on the craft she holds dear (and does well).

Feature: If Comedians Were Sex Toys

Sex and comedy are symbiotic bedfellows. Many comedians are martyrs for coitus’ often ridiculous trappings, spinning observational gold the night after the morning after.

When you bring in sex toys, things are liable to get even more funny, because really, who doesn’t enjoy a good 14 inch dildo joke? Even grandma gets down, right? At least on the jokes (hopefully). 

So as an homage to comedy and well, sex toys, I thought it would be fun to actually compare famous comedians to sex toys. Can you guess who’s going to be the 14incher?

Cho was born in San Francisco in 1968. She grew up in three places, but primarily near Ocean Beach in the never sunny Sunset District.

“When I go to England,” Cho exclaimed, “I’m like Oh My God! This is exactly a big country that is made up of the Sunset District.”
