Margaret Cho has reportedly been living in a sober-living facility for five months post-rehab.

The comedian revealed the news during a show at the Comedy Store in Hollywood on Nov. 3, reports The Hollywood Reporter. According to a tweet by the comedy club, Cho did perform that evening, though a rep for Cho has not yet responded to PEOPLE’s requested for comment.

“I bring the real me and my truth to my work,” Cho, 47, reportedly said. “It’s not perfect, it’s not manufactured, it’s real.”

Performing that evening alongside fellow comedians Moshe Kasher, Jonathan Kite, Justin Martingale, Lachlan Patterson and Iliza Shlesinger, Cho reportedly revealed her stint in rehab came after an intervention by friends. According to THR, Cho joked that she brought wine to her intervention thinking she was going to a friend’s party. She reportedly said she got drunk anyway and has been in living in the sober facility since.

According to THR, despite the heavy subject matter of her set, it was well-received and included jokes about topics the comedian has regularly tackled, from race to being a rape survivor.

During the Nov. 3 show, she reportedly detailed how she was raped by her uncle from age 5-12, and she defended her decision to bring it up: “If we can shine a light on what happens to us, we have a shot at making rape obsolete,” she allegedly said. “That’s my dream.”

The comedian also reportedly delivered a number of jokes about Donald Trump: “Who does he think he is? Woody Allen? No, he thinks he’s Bill Cosby.”

“He can’t even blend his under-eye concealer,” she reportedly quipped. “You don’t even know how to use a makeup sponge?”

Cho is set to perform at Helium Comedy Club in Portland, Oregon, for three shows Nov. 10-12.
