Margaret Cho’s new comedy tour is the mother of all shows

Margaret Cho

She sounded a bit tired in the phone interview. Between guest starring on a hit TV show, planning her “Mother” comedy tour, singing, embracing her new passion of riding motorcycles, starring on “Drop Dead Diva,” traveling, writing her blog, and answering the same questions from reporters all day, Margaret Cho has a right to be a bit reserved when not “on” in front of an audience.

But Cho is still thrilled to be nominated for an Emmy for her guest actress appearance on “30 Rock.” She actually played a man — well, two men — to receive the Emmy nod.

“It’s great. I really love that show. It’s an honor,” Cho said of the nomination.
