When gay-fave Margaret Cho takes to the Warner Theatre stage Friday, Oct. 29, she won’t be alone. Aside from the audience, there will be one John Roberts.
OMG – chief justice??
”That would be great,” says Cho, clarifying that, no, not Chief Justice John Roberts, but gay comic John Roberts.
That’s not to say Cho doesn’t have some high-powered friends in Washington, as she learned in May during a visit to the White House for an event celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.
”I met the president and he was awesome,” she says. “He’s a fan. He told me he really loves what I do.”
Cho isn’t long on specifics, but denies Obama ran up to her yelling ”ass master!”
Mingling with the mighty isn’t just a D.C. hobby, however, as Cho recently danced with the stars on ABC, along with Bristol Palin, who – as far as Cho could tell – remained abstinent throughout.
”Bristol is really, really nice. I didn’t talk to her at all about politics. She was so nice, so supportive. Very classy as a competitor.”
