Entertainer Bios

Margaret Cho

Margaret Cho is a two time Grammy and recent Emmy nominee as well as being honored by LA Pride with a Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing an individual whose lifetime body of work has left a lasting major imprint on the LGBT community. Through her hard work, Margaret has had the opportunity to be heard, to extend her point of view and become regarded as a true pioneer in her field.

She takes none of it for granted. “It’s a wonderful thing to be known as a ‘safe haven’ for people. A lot people who come to my shows don’t necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans. I seem to be a safe alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”

Special Guest - Selene Luna

Selene Luna will open the Night of Comedy at the Whistler Pride and Ski Festival. A trail-blazing little person in the entertainment world, Selene Luna, at 3’10″, is a small package with a very big presence. A veteran of the stage and screen, Selene cut her teeth performing in clubs and art venues, and quickly became a darling of Hollywood’s underground scene.

The diminutive actress/writer/burlesque artist/stand-up comic/model/activist has faced more obstacles than most, as a woman born a little person who emigrated from Mexico to the U.S. with her family when she was just three years old. Luna’s original work explores the highs and lows of overcoming multiple levels of discrimination, weaving together a lifetime of adversity to tell humorous tales. Selene Luna has carved a niche for herself, and continues to break the stereotypes of little people in entertainment.
