Ian, Selene & Margaret at the Dark Room

Friday night, my friend Ed and I made our way to a little joint called The Dark Room in San Francisco to see Ian Harvie and Selene Luna. They were in town with Margaret Cho for the GayVN Awards.

I have to say it's the first time I've seen a show at a place that was BYOB. People brought in 6-packs (not the kind WE wanted to see!), tall cans of beer, etc. Anyhoo, it was a very enthusiastic crowd.

Before the show, I had to tinkle, so I went looking for the restroom. Keep in mind this is a very small place. I was directed past a certain curtain, and I see Selene heading for the can. So I'm standing there looking around, I turn to my right, and there are Margaret and Ian in the "green room," if you want to call it that.

Margaret quickly greeted me, introducing me to her guitarist friend Mike. "Blake's a big fan. He's been coming to see me for 25 years, since he was little!" I felt a bit like Diana Ross when she says, "I've been singing for 45 years, and I'm only 46!"

I chatted up Margaret and Ian about last Monday's Fingerbang show in LA. Taylor Dayne was among the audience who went to see them. Apparently, she really did Tell It To Their Hearts!

Then Selene entered the room and walked right past me. I said, "Hi Selene!" She turned and said, "Oh, hi! I didn't see you. I guess I should look up!!" They were all ready to rehearse a song, so I ducked out and went back to my seat.

The Dark Room really is just that. It was like someone's cozy living room, and being right in the front row, Ed and I were almost onstage with the gang! For a few moments, we were even part of the show!

Ian and Selene sang (in character) and each performed standup as well. It was the first time I'd seen either of them do a full show. Their extended sets allowed both of them to really settle comfortably into their performances, sliding on the routines like an old pair of shoes.

Then, as an added bonus, Margaret came onstage, doing about 30 minutes of songs and comedy with the audience in preparation for the next night's hosting gig. We got much more than the $10 show we paid for.

To top it off, I found out that "do-it-yourself" photos taken from above are very flattering!

Margaret Talks TV

Tonight Margaret Cho, Ian Harvie and Selene Luna take New Jersey by storm! They will hit the stage at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ.

Margaret did an interview with to promote the event. In it, she discussed her television endeavors. I was bummed to read that "The Cho Show" will not return to VH1, but Margaret hopes to take it elsewhere.

Here's the scoop on Lifetime's "Drop Dead Diva," which is slated to hit the air in June:
“It’s about this really thin blond young beautiful model who dies and is reincarnated in the body of an overweight woman,” says Cho, who plays the loyal assistant to the latter (Brooke Elliott), a plus-size attorney. “Oh, my God, it’s all about body image, how we view ourselves and how that affects our self-esteem. I’ve always had a lot of issues around weight. I’ve always talked about it. People can really understand and relate to it.”
Check out the whole interview here.

Margaret goes to LUNCH

Check out this new vid Margaret posted on her site. She stars as Mrs. Cho and John Roberts is Margie. There was no explanation, really, so I don't quite know what it's about, but it's cute!

Margaret & Janice Dickinson Do Gay Porn!

Did that grab your attention? Good! I love a salacious headline!

Before you get up-in-arms, it's not quite what you think. Not that we would put anything past Margaret!

Our comic diva joins the original supermodel Janice Dickinson and Alec Mapa, hilarious star of Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty and more, to host this year's GayVN Awards. The event takes place at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco on March 28.

Margaret loves her gays and adult entertainment, so why not join the two? Sounds like a night of a thousand laughs (at least) and tons of scandal!

Chastity Belt for The Doctors!

Margaret was a human popsicle filming her episode of The Doctors, and it never aired! The vagina show got the shaft! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

Read all about the Cho-sicle and her disgust with the treatment of this episode at

Hopefully soon, the chastity belt will be removed and we will finally see this episode!

Margaret's Doctors episode pulled

Apparently, the vagina-themed episode of The Doctors was pulled because several stations refused to air it. Sure, Margaret is a comic, but the episode could have been informative and helpful to many people. They've discussed such topics before, but never all in one episode. I guess conservative America just isn't ready to have a few laughs while receiving vital, health-related facts.

Anyway, check out the promo here:

Monday, January 26, 2009


Tomorrow night, January 27, it's Margaret's musical extravaganza Fingerbang! She likens it to Hee-Haw, but less country and less corny. Our gal has gotten "guitarded" (her word, not mine) and has been singing songs such as "Eat Me Out" (on the Beautiful tour) and a Repeal Prop 8 ditty.

She'll be joined by Jill Sobule (she was kissing girls in the '90s, long before Katy Perry) as well as "Sensuous Woman" costars Liam Sullivan, Ian Harvie, Kurt Hall and Selene Luna. Check Margaret's site for info. Of course I'll be there and I'll report back on the festivities. I can't wait!!

Margaret on The Doctors Today!

Hey, don't miss Margaret co-hosting the syndicated show The Doctors today. It's supposed to be their vagina episode. Sounds awesome to me!

If you're in LA, hit up The Ian Harvie Show tonight. Selene Luna and a "surprise guest" are appearing.

*Side Note: Go here and vote for Ian Harvie to be on LOGO's Big Gay Sketch Show. You can vote once every 24 hours!

Margaret Cho: Drop Dead Diva

Happy New Year everyone! OK, obviously I have been slacking, but it's hard to top getting props from Margaret Cho on her blog. (Yes, I had to mention it again.) Check out all these goodies:

First of all, Lifetime has picked up the show Drop Dead Diva starring our own lovely and talented comic goddess. A few months back, Margaret had to rearrange a few live performances to shoot the pilot. The show also stars Broadway actress Brooke Elliott and is about "a shallow model-in-training who dies in a sudden accident only to find her soul resurfacing in the body of a brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney." No word on who plays what role.

The comedic drama will air on Lifetime this summer! It will be great to see La Cho in a scripted show that sounds as if it will be quirky and unique. What's next, a SAG Award? An Emmy or a Golden Globe? The sky's the limit for our fearless gal!

Speaking of which, check out Margaret and Selene Luna in the new Coilhouse magazine. It looks like Selene is on the front cover and Margaret is on the back. If I didn't know better, I'd swear they are wearing the same hair! The photos are badass, and the birds look kind of ominous. Where the hell is Tippi Hedren?

Divalicious Selene appears in My Bloody Valentine 3D, which opens this weekend. It's the remake of a 1981 horror classic. You can catch it in 3D or traditional 2D.

If you love satire, you must see this hilarious Madonna & Lourdes sendup starring the multi-talented Selene as Lourdes. If the still shot doesn't kill you, the video will! It's just wrong... but oh so right!
