Comedian Cho joins Good Vibrations board

San Francisco native and comedian Margaret Cho – hailed by the New York Times as “murderously funny” – is joining the board of directors of Good Vibrations, the Bay Area’s retailer and distributor for sex toys, personal care products, and other items, the company said in a statement Monday, November 13.

“We are honored and thrilled to have Margaret on our board,” said Good Vibrations’ president and CEO Theresa Sparks. “She will give us a fresh perspective on contemporary trends in pop culture and her personal values fit perfectly with those of our staff, management, and shareholders.”

Cho, a professional entertainer and outspoken activist for LGBT rights, will be “intimately involved” with the future development and strategic growth plans of Good Vibrations, the company said.

At the board of director’s introduction party, Cho took the stage to say, “I am joining Good Vibrations just in time. My Hitachi (vibrator) has just fallen into two pieces after 15 years.”

Cho attended school on Haight Street during the 1970s. She starred in the ill-received sitcom “American Girl” in the 1990s and most recently has performed around the country on her “Assassin” tour as well as penned a second book, “I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight.”

As a member of the Good Vibrations board, Cho will be responsible for making decisions regarding company growth and overall navigation and to help enforce the company’s mission statement as well as the values of the shareholders.

“Margaret’s ‘Sensuous Woman’ stage show is the most diverse, high-energy show I’ve seen in ages – maybe ever,” said Good Vibrations staff sexologist and chief cultural officer Carol Queen. “She does burlesque as well as comedy, showing how much she’s been influenced by the sex-positive arts. It’s just further proof that Margaret Cho is a perfect addition for the Good Vibrations board.”
