Kung Pao Kosher Comedy

Kung Pao Kosher Comedy



Kung Pao Kosher Comedy was created in 1993 by accident by San Francisco comedian Lisa Geduldig, who went to perform in South Hadley, Massachusetts at what she thought was going to be a comedy club.  Peking Garden Club turned out to be a Chinese Restaurant.  After telling Jewish jokes at a Chinese restaurant, a conversation between Lisa and her old summe camp friend, Tobi Sovak, led to the creation of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy.

Now in its 19th year, the event started out as a community service for all Jews who have ever been stuck on Christmas with nothing to do but hide under the covers, contemplate midnight Mass, or visit a Chinese restaurant... The audience has expanded to include Chinese-Jewish couples, interfaith ones, singles, families, gay people, straight people, undecided ones, those who are far from home, and just generally people who like smart comedy mixed with Chinese food.

Kung Pao also produces other comedy events including Funny Girlz; Feygelah Schmeygelah; A Muslim, A Mormon, and A Jew Walk into A Bar: The Comedy of Religion; The Color of Funny: A Multi-Culty Comedy Show; Make Laugh, Not War; Tom-A-Palooza; Queer Comedy Quack Up; The George Bush Going Away Party: An Evening of Political Comedy; Comedy Returns to El Rio; and What Am I, Chopped Liver? In 2005, Kung Pao was proud to bring the sold-out show “Charo and her Las Vegas Show” to San Francisco audiences and was thrilled to bring Charo back again on June 29, 2008!
