Margaret Cho has been named to the cast of Dancing with the Stars Season 11. In the Q&A session, she confesses that she doesn’t have any ballroom dancing experience, but knows some stripper moves. Somehow she’ll fit this into her comedy tour schedule. Margaret has also recently released the comedy album “Cho Dependent” with songs like I’m Sorry and Eat Sh*t and Die. (Order the album now here)
