2016 is the year of keeping it real. So who better to do that with than Margaret Cho?
Three time Grammy and Emmy nominee, comedian Margaret Cho has been named special co-host of E!’s comedy favorite “Fashion Police.” “Fashion Police” will cover the biggest award shows of the 2016 season beginning Monday, January 11 with the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards special.
"I love joining the crew of Fashion Police. To me it feels like family. Although I am not quite a fashionista, I would love to look at it like I am changing it up - Fashion Police: Special Victims Unit. It makes me happiest to spend time with Melissa, and when I see her laugh at my jokes, I feel like Joan is smiling, somewhere." Margaret Cho
Margaret is also set to host the “New Now Next Honors” on the Logo Network February 1. From the slopes of Aspen Gay Ski Week, “New Now Next Honors” is a celebration of what’s hot and, more importantly, what’s going to be in the year to come.
Speaking of the year to come, Margaret has signed a development deal with Amazon for her marijuana-themed family dramedy titled “Highland.” The hour long project follows Cho, who after court-ordered rehab gets a chance to start over, but has to move in with her dysfunctional family who now run a pot dispensary. Co-produced by Tomorrow Studios and Amazon Studios, “Highland” was created by Margaret Cho and writer Liz Sarnoff (“Deadwood,” “Lost,” “Alcatraz.”). Cho is also attached to star and exec. produce, along with Becky Clements and Marty Adelstein of Tomorrow Studios.
In addition, you can catch Margaret on “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, February 12.
Margaret will also continue to tour with her ever evolving stand-up comedy show throughout 2016. She will continue to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and razor sharp insight. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted. “It’s a wonderful thing to be known as a ‘safe haven’ for people who feel disenfranchised. The audience at my shows don’t necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans. I seem to be a secure alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”
