Before Margaret Cho arrived in town for the May 3 performance of her one-woman show, Beautiful, her manager contacted once-and-future masseuse Mike Jones, who’s back in Denver after putting his one-man play, Naked B4 God: Exposing the Hypocrisy of Ted Haggard, on hiatus.
Cho wanted to meet Jones, the manager said. And so Saturday night, Jones stopped backstage at the Paramount, where he got this picture and heard Cho call him a "heroic ho." He could have lived without the "ho part," Jones reports. -- Patricia Calhoun
