Margaret Cho

Animated, outspoken Korean-American comedian Margaret Cho survived the stand-up circuit and a short-lived '90s sitcom (ABC's All-American Girl) to become an author, film star, marquee live attraction, political activist and tireless supporter of gay rights. Her four in-concert movies have received rave reviews from pedestrian comedy fans and gay and lesbian film-festival audiences alike. Drawing primarily from first-hand personal experiences, Cho's performances have shifted from bits about her mother to sexual politics in recent years, but her sign-of-the-times A.D.D.-inspired scattershot delivery ensures that she'll cover just about anything contemporary, relevant or resonant. 7:30 & 10:00 p.m, Fri. and Sat., April 14 & 15, The Tampa Improv, 1600 E. Eighth Ave., Ybor City, $30, 813-864-4000, www.improvtampa.com.
