Raunchy jokester Margaret Cho straddles the line between comedy and music with her new album and tour, both titled “Cho Dependent.”

The Cho Dependent Tour starts with an August 26 show at Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, OR, and wraps December 12 at the Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. The album, which features collaborations with musicians from Patty Griffin to Ani DiFranco, drops two days earlier on August 24.

Cho’s 33-date venture includes performances on September 12 at Paramount Theatre in Austin, TX; October 16 at Chicago Theatre in Chicago, IL; October 28 at Wilbur Theatre in Boston, MA; and December 3 at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA. More dates are expected.

The comedienne’s Canadian fans will also have ample opportunity to catch her live act. Cho has six shows scheduled for the provinces, including gigs on August 28 at Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, BC; October 2 at Winspear Centre in Edmonton, AB; and October 22 at Massey Hall in Toronto, ON.

Fan club presales for the Cho Dependent Tour begin today, June 9, and public onsales follow on June 11. Exact face values range widely from market to market, but according to current listings on Ticketmaster.com, the low end of the range begins around $25 with prices extending up to $65.

In addition to her fully disclosed tour dates, Cho also has a special engagement booked for November 5 in New York, NY, though a venue for the event has not been announced. Presales for New York City will also be handled separately from the rest of the tour, according to Cho’s official Web site.

Though Cho’s tour doesn’t officially launch until summer’s end, the comedienne does have a couple dates lined up earlier in the summer. Her calendar opens with various June 10-11 sets at this year’s Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, TN, and is closely followed by a June 26 event at Hard Rock Live in Biloxi, MS. Tickets for the Biloxi show when on sale in mid-February, with prices ranging from $49.99 to $59.99.
