At age 16, Margaret Cho dropped out of school and began touring as a standup comedian. By 23, she was the star of her own sitcom, All-American Girl, the groundbreaking show featuring television's first Asian American family. But the road to fame wasn't smooth, and when the sitcom crashed and burned, so did Margaret.

Without ever losing her trademark humor, Margaret tells her astonishing tale of dieting her way into the hospital, drinking herself into oblivion, then rising from the ashes in her smash-hit, one-woman show and record-breaking concert film. I'm the One That I Want, based on her show of the same name, is filled with dead-on insights about the experience of being a woman with attitude, of flowing with the highs and lows of life, and of creating one's own identity and acceptance. It is every bit as hilarious, shocking, and irreverent as she is. Download and start listening now!

    " A hilarious ride through Cho's early years in life and show business. She writes in her usual brash, irreverant, tender way about bodies and loving them, about addiction and recovery, about the pain of childhood and the joy of performing well. Basically, I want to be her. "

    " Her early standup was alright but had little lasting power for me; her later work was a bit like watching someone I really wanted to like telling "you had to be there" stories, poorly. This book was more engaging to me than any of her standup though. Or maybe, I find her storytelling fascinating, but poorly presented in stand-up format (and I find the whole fag hag thing a little gross, so, stuff). The backstory on her experience with her failed TV show is worth reading if nothing else. "

    " Between the funny stuff, Margaret bears her soul quite a bit in this memoir. "

    " This is a great book. Comedienne Margaret Cho makes you laugh and cry, sometimes at the same time, as she relates her years of eating disorders and drug abuse while trying to make it in Hollywood. I haven't seen the eponymous movie but I've been planning to. I did see Notorious C.H.O.. "
