Margaret Cho: Still Not Funny

Even a liberal-leaning critic thinks her new act sucks:

I'm neither a liberal nor a conservative, but, after watching Assassin, I can understand why this country is so polarized. The divisions between the far right and the far left are so deep and wide as to be unbridgeable. Cho's monologue radiates hatred and bitterness towards those who do not share her convictions. She gets applause, ovations, and laughs, but it's important to remember that those in the audience share her views. (In fairness, I should mention that it's just as offensive to watch an arch conservative give a lengthy speech. I can't endure more than about 10 minutes of Rush Limbaugh's pontificating before I have to change the station.)

Passion radiates from every syllable in the comedienne's diatribe. She speaks about topical current events from early 2005, including the re-election of George W. Bush, the Terry Schiavo situation, the death of Pope John Paul II, and the war in Iraq. She makes funny faces, scrunching up her nose and holding it. And she attempts mimicry, although most of her accents sound either like a black woman from the South or an Asian with broken English. Through all of it, I chuckled once or twice, and never let loose a hearty laugh.
