The first narrative feature from the pen of comedienne Margaret Cho has wrapped principle photography. According to a press release issued on Cho's website, Bam Bam and Celeste tells the tale of two Midwestern misfits who embark on "an epic road trip to New York City" in order to "take on their high-school nemeses … and discover that true beauty lies within." In addition to writing the screenplay, Cho takes on both the role of Celeste, and that of Celeste's Mommy - allowing Cho to at long last immortalize her impression of her own mother on celluloid.  Bam Bam is played by Cho's friend and opening act, Bruce Daniels. The supporting cast includes Alan Cumming, Kathy Najimy, and John Cho (no relation to Margaret - he was Harold and he and Kumar went to White Castle). Cho's latest travelling stand-up extravaganza, the Assassin Tour, began March 4 and will visit 26 cities between now and June. For more info on all of the above, go to www.margaretcho.com.
