I have chosen to stay and fight by Margaret Cho ( Book )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Comedian and activist Cho's righteous comic rage finds its targets with pinpoint accuracy and is meant not only to entertain but also to champion the civil liberties and raise awareness for the social injustices that are her impassioned causes--among them freedom of expression; gay rights; racial discrimination; and capital punishment. It is this blend of comedy and fervor that awakens the devotion of her legions of fans and permeates this book--her vehement, principled, and resoundingly funny political platform to shake us loose of the politics of disillusionment and get us through the years ahead. This book chronicles Cho's adventures and misadventures in political activism and lays out what's right in no uncertain terms.--From publisher description

I'm the one that I want by Margaret Cho ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This film captures comedian Margaret Cho at home in San Francisco, in her first appearance at the Warfield Theater. The spine of the show is the appalling true story of her experiences starring in the short-lived ABC sitcom "All-American Girl," the first mainstream television comedy built around an Asian-American family. Although her character was based on herself, the network decided to revamp her appearance and her personality. Her kidneys collapse, her show is canceled, and she begins a descent into booze, pills, and self-loathing. Ms. Cho spins lack of self-esteem into comic gold, and the eventual resurrection of her own voice, her own shape, and satisfaction with being the one she wants
