Closing Night! Cho Dependent
Lorene Machado (USA, 2011, 85 Min.)
Location: The Portage Theater
Cho Dependent takes us front row center for Margaret Cho’s acclaimed live performance based on her 2010 Grammy Award-nominated comedy album. She’s still the brash and unapologetically politically incorrect Cho we’ve come to love. Cho Dependent features her barbed humor and scathing commentary on everything from her stint on Dancing with the Stars to Lady Gaga to the culture shock of moving to the South for her Lifetime TV series Drop Dead Diva. In typical Cho fashion, she touches on topics familiar to her fans – outrageous bedroom escapades, self-deprecating tales of being an outsider, and, everyone’s favorite, her mother’s latest antics. Come get a “ticket for gaywalking” with the only comedienne who is an equal-opportunity repeat “offender.” Humor like this should be prosecutable – but, thankfully, it’s not.
Closing Night Reception: Join us after the screening at 8:00 PM in the grand lobby of the Portage Theater for a closing night reception with cool jazz by Lakeside Pride shhh...OUT! Jazz Ensemble, Blue Moon beer, and food donated by many of Chicago's finest restaurants.
