  • Her face is as much a part of her comedic form as her observations are. It's an amazing slapstick instrument, creating a scrapbook of living mug shots. show more

  • Establishes the comedian as just that: notorious -- in all the best ways outlaw comedy can make you a star. show more

  • Cho is funnier — and raunchier — in this, her second concert film, than in 2000's "I'm the One That I Want," even if she doesn't break any new comedic ground.
