* AsianDrivers: Subverted. During one performance where she was sharing the bill with several other comics, she had to sit through act after act with some variation on the "bad Asian driver" joke. When she was finally up, she opened with, "So, I'm actually a pretty good driver."

HUGE gay following. We're talkin' second Creator/JudyGarland here. It helps that Cho has been quite open about her love for gays for her entire career.

* FluffyFashionFeathers: Inspired by Music/{{Cher}} and Music/{{Bjork}}, Margaret once wore an outlandish peacock dress to the Grammy Awards. While she didn't win the Grammy she was up for, she ''was'' named Worst Dressed by various {{fashion magazine}}s. This was met with cheers, since it came after a rant on how everybody at award shows dress the same, and the ones named Worst Dressed are really the best since they created their own look.
