Margaret Cho has been called a political comedian, but to her, political comedy is just a part of the authenticity she strives for.

On this episode of Political Theater, she joins Heard on the Hill reporter Kathryn Lyons to talk about her development as a comedian and where politics fits in, the Democratic presidential candidate she thinks could do a “mean foxtrot” and what she hopes 2020 will bring.
