    Margaret Cho Live in Taipei 《Fresh Off The Bloat》


    ● 五度葛萊美、艾美獎提名
    ● 滾石雜誌全球50大脫口秀演員之一
    ● LGBT 社群指標領袖人物

    韓裔喜劇演員Margaret Cho(趙牡丹)將帶來全新系列的脫口秀演出《Fresh Off The Bloat》!!

    Margaret Cho,為韓裔美國人,她以涵蓋種族、性別、暴力等議題的例行的脫口秀聞名。同時她還執導並出演自己的音樂錄影帶,並擁有自己的服裝品牌。她長年為LGBT權利而奮鬥,並也因她為亞裔族群、女性族群及LGBT族群爭取人權而獲得高度讚賞。

    《Fresh Off The Bloat》是Margaret Cho全新的主題,巧妙取自美國移民潮時候常出現的用語”Fresh Off The Boat ”,意指不太了解美國文化的移民,至今仍是微微帶點嘲諷意味的形容。她直說:「我祖母說,當你陳屍在湖裡好多天後,被發現的樣子就是如此的浮腫(Bloated)。」這就有如過去大多數人不敢觸碰的議題一樣,Margaret 希望用這一系列演出來使大家正視藥物成癮、酗酒、自殺等社會問題,並希望大家能更接納這些人,使他們一樣能自在的步入人生。

    “狂野,而有行動力的” --- 紐約時報

    14歲時開始嘗試創作,16歲時便展開她的脫口秀演出生涯,短短幾年她不僅贏得了比賽冠軍、獲得替Jerry Seinfeld開場的機會,並也獲選為年度最佳校園喜劇演員。

    然而,每每受邀演出時總是為了配合節目播出被要求將演出的內容稀釋、降低爭議性詞語等等,讓她深深感覺,受歡迎的是那個「別人眼中的她」,那個演出浮誇且具有著亞洲人身分的她,並非是她想要的自己。於是在1999年她推出了”I’m The One That I Want.”演出,以喜劇方式勇敢探討種族與性別議題,獲得了巨大的成功並拍成電影。

    而後她也並未沉浸於自己走紅的現況而自滿,持續藉著自身的影響力進一步的寫出更多以一個亞裔女性視角所觸碰的爭議性社會問題的嘲諷喜劇,也從未間斷地散播反對種族主義、反暴力等觀點,以及替LGBT族群、街友等弱勢爭取應有的權利。

    “Fresh Off The Bloat” is certainly Margaret Cho’s sickest stand-up comedy show to date. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted as she continues to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and her razor sharp insight with her takes on addiction, abuse, activism and Asianness. It's all about the politics of disgust and what is disgusting about politics.

    Aptly titled, “Fresh Off The Bloat,” Margaret says, ““Fresh Off The Bloat” is my sickest show to date. My grandmother said "You look like bloated as if you've been found dead in a lake after several days of searching." Koreans are the most savage of all the Asians. My new show is all about being fresh off drugs and drinking and suicide and coming back to life - finally fished out of the river Styx. It's meta. It's magical. It's me.”

    “ Wildly Kinetic. ” – The New York Times

    Her groundbreaking, controversial, and short-lived ABC sitcom, All-American Girl (1994) soon followed. Oddly, while chosen because of who she was – a nonconformist Korean American woman with liberal views – the powers-that-be decided they preferred for Margaret to “tone it down” for the show. She soon realized that though she was an Executive Producer, this would be a battle she could not win. “For fear of being too “ethnic,” the show got so watered down for television that by the end, it was completely lacking in the essence of what I wanted to accomplish.”

    In 1999, her groundbreaking, off Broadway one-woman show, I’m The One That I Want, toured the country to national acclaim and was made into a best-selling book and feature film of the same name. After her experience with All-American Girl, Margaret wanted to make sure she would only ever have to answer to herself, putting herself in charge of the distribution and sales of her film, which garnered incredible reviews and broke records for “Most Money Grossed per Print”. In 2001, after the success of her first tour, Margaret launched Notorious C.H.O., a smash-hit 37-city national tour that culminated in a sold-out concert at Carnegie Hall. Notorious C.H.O., hailed by the New York Times as “Brilliant,” was recorded and released as a feature film. Both films were acquired by Showtime, and produced by Margaret’s production company, a testament to the success of Margaret’s business model.

    In 2015, Margaret was one of the hosts of TLC’s All About SEX, a late night call-in talk show with Margaret covering sex toys and alternative sexuality. And in typical “go-go-go” style, Margaret has signed on to develop Highland, a dramedy for Amazon. The hour long show follows Margaret, who after court-ordered rehab, gets a chance to start over by moving in with her (dysfunctional) family who run a pot dispensary. Co-created by Margaret and writer Liz Sarnoff (“Deadwood, Lost, Alcatraz) Margaret is set to star and executive produce as well.

    With so much success in her artistic life, Margaret has never turned away from the causes that are important to her. She is incredibly active in anti-racism, anti-bullying, advocating for the homeless and gay rights campaigns, and has been recognized for her unwavering dedication.
