The theater's executive director, Gary Hygom, made the opening remarks. As Cho took the stage, she was greeted with a warm Long Island welcome.
Cho poked fun at the college admissions scandal which featured Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman, as well as her Korean mother's reaction to that. She went on to continuously make fun of her parents throughout her set, which was hilarious. She expressed her strong support for the LGBTQ community, which is relevant this year, which coincided with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots for equality.
She also shared that she has been sober and is a survivor of her childhood rape. Cho also opened up about her own sexuality, where she classified herself as "bisexual," and described some of her intimate experiences in a witty fashion.
Cho also made fun of our Commander in Chief, his wife Melania, as well as former Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway.
She also shared funny stories about being on such reality TV shows as Masked Singer and Dancing With The Stars, as well as her friendships with the late queen of comedy Joan Rivers and her former hairdresser-turned-TV personality Jonathan Van Ness.
