Jess interviews LGBT comedy icon Margaret Cho! We chat about Margaret’s incredibly prolific career, including her 8 stand-up specials and iconic TV appearances (30 Rock, Sex and the City). We go deep about her experience starring in a sitcom based on her life where the network (ABC) fed her diet pills and zero-fat cookies in an effort to compete against the casts of Friends and My So-Called Life. We also discuss growing up in the San Francisco gay bookstore owned by her parents, becoming Ellen’s opening act in the ‘90s, why she is still afraid of Ellen, Joan Rivers' advice and more!
