State of Emergency
The eagerly awaited London debut of the acclaimed, multi award-winning American stand-up comedian. Margaret is more than just a stand-up comedian at the top of her game - she is also a celebrated feminist and arch critic of the Bush administration, who has been vilified in the right wing press during the current US election, censored during appearances and inundated with racist hate mail because of her attacks on the White House. State of Emergency
was born out of the extreme political climate in the U.S. prior to their election. In addition, to her political observations about everything from Martha Stewart to the Pope and her impersonations of Bjork and Arnold Schwarzenegger, London audiences will be treated to some of her best-loved, most quoted classic routines such as Assmaster and Asian Chicken Salad and they will find out why Margaret's mother has become a much loved celebrity of her own in the U.S.
