Women talking crudely about sex. We are often threatened by it as entertainment. So, too often we get some pathetic ‘Sex And The City’ Samantha-type saying something mildly surprising about a penis. Not Margaret Cho. Her outrageous routine focuses mainly on her desire to continue having sex into old age, if only so she can remove her false teeth to fit two cocks in her mouth. A statement that effectively induces uproarious laughter from the audience, along with a hand-to-the-face sharp-intake-of-breath: “Oh God, she actually just said that”. I laughed so hard a little bit of pee came out. Go see Margaret Cho, but do not, for God’s sake, take your Granny.
