AllMusic Review by

Korean-American, left-wing, bisexual comedienne Margaret Cho takes on the American Right in this wonderfully realized series of sketches from her 2005 ASSASSIN world tour. With subtly timed quips ("Being gay is not outrageous...and if you think it is, you're gay!") and caustic digs at President George Bush ("Bush is no Hitler. He would be if he applied himself,") she vents her outrage at hot-button subjects from female inequality to right-wing talk radio hosts in a paradoxically relaxed, conversational manner. Her race, gender, and sexual orientation make her the quintessential outsider, the best vantage point for cutting-edge comedy.
