"Are you really going to let New Zealand fuck you like that?"

Thunderous applause greets Margaret Cho's arrival on stage, as she launches into a spot-on Aussie accent "Yiss/Nooooooooo! Yiss/Noooooooooo", and calls for community action for gay marriage.

"I can't believe you haven't legalised it yet! Are you really going to let New Zealand fuck you like that?"

It's a fair point - among many that were raised during her set, which covered rape culture, blow jobs, her comedy godmother Joan Rivers and being body shamed at a Korean sauna because of her tattoos.

"This is the most 'chinky' haircut I've ever had," she says. "In my family when you hit 47 this is the hair you have to get. I can hear my mother, my aunts, all the women; I just want to wash and go. When really what this is, is my way of telling the world I am never going to get fucked again. I'm over it, I'm asexual now, I'm just done with it all."

So, while sex is off Cho's menu, that doesn't include calling out the racists, bigots, misogynists and abusers of power, and somehow finding the humour in unspoken subjects. You gotta love the stroppy woman.
