This weeks Birthday Girl is on a roll with her fourth Grammy Nomination. Will number four be the charm? Even if Margaret doesn't strike gold, she's still winning! Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Emmy nominated comedian Margaret Cho has been nominated for her fourth career Grammy nomination in the Best Comedy Album category today for her latest studio album, American Myth.   American Myth  is the follow-up to her 2010 Grammy nominated debut album Cho Dependent and is Margaret’s first new music in over 6 years via her Clownery Records label.  To order click here: .  

I'm thrilled to receive this nomination and I share this honor with Garrison Starr and Roger Rocha and all the other artists who contributed to this album. Also it's going to be a blast to be on the red carpet reporting on all the fashions first hand as an undercover (sort of) officer for Fashion Police! – Margaret Cho

You can view all four videos off the album below; “Anna Nicole,” “Ron’s Got a DUI,” “Fat Pussy” and the controversial “(I Want To) Kill My Rapist.”   
Ron’s Got a DUI” –
(I Want To) Kill My Rapist” -

 “I am extremely proud to release American Myth. This is an album of anthems and showcases my first efforts as a composer. I made it with my longtime collaborator Garrison Starr and an incredible and inspiring crew of artists. It is my glamorous and glittering tribute to family, comedy, anger, fame, gayness, grief, fat pride, love and hate. “ – Margaret Cho

Margaret returns to tv as special co-host on “Fashion Police” on E! Monday, January 9 at 8 p ET/PT with coverage of the Golden Globe Awards and and will also continue to tour with her ever evolving stand-up comedy show throughout 2016 and 2017.  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.”
