Margaret Cho is the only living human being to be all these things without having .

At age sixteen Margaret dropped out of school and began touring as a standup comedian. By twenty-three she was the star of her own sitcom, "All-American Girl," the groundbreaking show featuring television's first Asian American family. I'm the One That I Want" is filled with dead-on insights about the experience of being a woman with attitude. In her own wicked style, Margaret Cho has written a book every bit as funny, shocking, and irreverent as she is.

November, 1999, Margaret Cho is home in San Francisco at the Warfield Theater. Cho structures her monologue loosely on her professional life's trajectory: doing stand-up, cast in an ABC-TV sitcom, losing 30 pounds in two weeks for the part, the show's cancellation, a descent into booze, pills, and self-loathing, and a resurrection into her own voice, her own shape, and being the one she wants. 0Check in. X I'm Watching This! Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. I'm the One That I Want. Recorded November 13, 1999, at the Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, Cho goes through her general agenda of breaking down social and racial stereotypes on this double-disc set, and comes out smiling. She spoofs society's ill acceptance of gay behavior and pornography, making it OK to laugh at such ignorance by using examples from popular culture. Somehow, people understand her and accept her regardless of how harsh she is. Poking fun at fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld and proclaiming herself a "fag hag" is only the extent of it.

In 1994, when Margaret Cho was just 26 years old, she achieved what has become the Holy Grail for today's comedians: her very own sitcom. And not just any sitcom—the first U.S. sitcom to feature an Asian-American female star. It should have been a year of triumph for Cho; instead, it was a living hell. First, she lost all creative control. Then, the producers expressed anxiety about the "fullness" of her face. Cho soon found herself in a spiral of anorexia and diet-pill abuse, which led, when the show was canceled, to clinical depression and drug and alcohol abuse.Margaret Cho not only survived--she came back with a comedic vengeance. I'm the One That I Want, her 1998 off-Broadway show, was her raucous, raunchy, howlingly funny yet searingly honest account of the dark years she'd been through. In 2000, a film version of the show was released at the Sundance Film Festival to near-delirious critical acclaim. In her new book, Cho expands on these experiences, finding deeper meaning and even more outrageous humor in her fateful encounter with the bizarre world of American network television. She can now say, in all seriousness, "I really love the way my life is going right now."
