    Margaret Cho

    You might recognize Margaret Cho from her satirical portrayal of Kim Jung Il on 30 Rock or as Teri Lee on Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva. Her knack for exposing the skewed view society has on 
women's beauty and body image with outspoken witticism is just one of

a favor and go see her stand-up act.
