Opinionated and sometimes bawdy, comedian Margaret Cho isn’t afraid to reinvent herself.

“I really always wanted to be comedian, and I always knew this would be my life,” she says. She tried her hand at stand-up comedy at age 14 and by 16 she was performing regularly.

“By the time I was 18 or 19, I was pretty much set into what I was going to do. Very focused.”

It was around this time that she entered a stand-up contest. First prize, which she captured, was a slot as the opening act for comedy king Jerry Seinfeld. From there it was on to Los Angeles and appearances on the Arsenio Hall Show, as well as a Bob Hope special and a tour of colleges nationwide.

Since then she’s worked behind and in front of the camera for both the big screen and TV.

7:30 and 10 p.m. Friday (Feb. 22); 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday (Feb. 23). $25-$55. Funny Bone Liberty, 7518 Bales St., Liberty Township, liberty.funnybone.com.
