Margaret Cho

Margaret Cho has always been one to go for the ultra-raunchy joke, and that tendency held true when she wrote her first studio album of comedy songs. Working with noted indie artists Tegan and Sara, Ben Lee and Ani DiFranco, Margaret released Cho Dependent in 2010 and managed to cover topics from cameltoes to detailing the act of sperm donation ("We just want to breed, and we don't need you"). She took the album on the road and nabbed a Grammy nomination for best comedy album.
