Biography

American comedienne of Korean descent, she grew up in San Francisco. At age 16 she began performing a stand-up comed act at a comedy club above her parents' bookstore. Shortly afterward she won the opportunity to open for Jerry Seiinfeld. In the early 1990s she moved to Los Angeles and entertained college crowds with great fervor and acclaim. She came to the attention of Arsenio Hall and Bob Hope and had a short-lived TV sitcom in 1994 entitled "All-American Girl."

In 1999 her hit one-woman show could be seen on Broadway "The One That I Want." She took the show on tour and has continued to perform for live audiences all over the country. In 2004 she was hailed for her talents in the political comedy arena when she took her show "State of Emergency" on tour.

Cho's career has had its ups and downs. After the cancellation of her first TV show in 1995, she became addicted to drugs and alcohol and detailed her struggles in her 2002 autobiography, "I'm the One That I Want."
