Good show, but weighed down by too much below-the-belt humor...
13 October 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I think this 2015 comedy special was actually my first introduction to Margaret Cho, or at least I don't recall having seen other shows from her prior to watching "PsyCHO" here late in 2019.

The show was adequately entertaining, and Margaret Cho definitely is funny and feels at home on the stage. However, and yes there is a however here, I just feel that there was too much focus on below-the-belt. I mean, sure that is an easy way of doing comedy, but it is just something that belongs back in the 1990s when stand-up comedy was not as common.

She does have some good jokes and she delivers them quite nicely, and I must admit that her on-screen presence was quite good.

But I was not expecting that much below-the-belt jokes and puns, so that was somewhat of a disappointment for me. But I must say that Margaret Cho is definitely a comedian that I will watch again, because she is talented and I do like her way of delivering jokes and punchlines on the stage.
