Margaret Cho’s Husband Al Ridenour

54-year-old artist/actor Al Ridenour used to be married to actress Margaret Cho, unfortunately, the couple divorced last year after almost 11-years of being together.

The couple was very open-minded, they established an open relationship since tying the knot on June 2003.

In a 2013 interview, The Drop Dead Diva actress said

“I’m married to a man but I’m bisexual so I like both,” “We got together because we both have this [idea of] ‘I just don’t want to have *** with the same person my whole life. That’s just gross.'”

Al Ridenour was born on March 6, 1961. The Los Angeles resident artist is perhaps better known for his work in the Art of Bleeding –a multi-media performance troupe providing darkly comic faux-educational programs in first-aid and safety at clubs, galleries, and art events.

According to a profile in LAVA, from 1991-1999, Al served as the Los Angeles “Grand Instigator” of the Cacophony Society, a national network of provocateurs serving as a prototype for “Project Mayhem” in Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club.   Under the banner of Cacophony, he orchestrated hundreds of darkly absurdist culture-jamming spectacles ranging from the detonation of a pyro-charged 80-foot replica of Disney’s It’s a Small World ride to a Christmas face-off between a two-hundred-strong mob of Santas and a riot squad.

Al has also worked as a journalist, writing on culture for periodicals both snooty and moronic, and is the author of Offbeat Food: Adventures in an Omnivorous World, arts contributor to Underground Guide to Los Angeles, and the inspirational coloring book, Crayons for Jesus!.  He also worked as a computer animator for 10 years.

According to his Facebook page, Al –who is a Pasadena native –currently works on his latest project Krampus.
