Since hitting the comedy scene hard in the early ’90s, Cho has remained busy with a short-lived ABC sitcom (“All-American Girl”), an off-Broadway one-woman show (“I’m the One That I Want”), several sold-out concert tours (“Notorious C.H.O.,” “Revolution,” “State of Emergency,” and “Assassin”) and a pair of best-selling books (“I’m the One That I Want” and “I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight”).

In 2007, she joined Cyndi Lauper, Deborah Harry, Erasure and others for the True Colors Tour, in support of the Human Rights Campaign.

Cho also created and starred in “The Sensuous Woman,” a live variety show featuring vaudevillian burlesque and comedy, which enjoyed an extended off-Broadway run last fall.

The comedian recently explained exactly what her “Beautiful” tour means to her.

“I want to explore the nature of beauty,” she said. “What is funny and scary about it, why we don’t often feel beautiful because our society’s standards are so rigid and unattainable.

“A DJ once asked me, ‘If you woke up tomorrow and you were beautiful, what would you do? If you were blonde, blue-eyed, 5 foot 11 and weighed 100 pounds, what would you do?’

“Well, I probably wouldn’t get up in that case, because I’d be too weak to stand.

“If that’s his only idea of beauty, then I feel really sorry for him. I want everyone to feel beautiful and I want to do it with laughter.”
