The world was introduced to Margaret Cho on the 1994 sitcom “All American Girl” and has gotten to know her since as a comedian, film actor, advocate for women, minorities and the LGBT community, and even designer of a short-lived clothing line. This year, she’ll add ballroom dancer to that list, when she appears on the new season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.” Cho’s also got a new comedy music album out, “Cho Dependent,” released late last month.
