“What are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?” 

Kung Pao Kosher Comedy is an institution in San Francisco and one of the city’s longest running comedy shows. Kung Pao is the brainchild of San Francisco-based Jewish comedian, Lisa Geduldig. The idea for Kung Pao came when Lisa was booked to perform at The Peking Garden Club in South Hadley, Massachusetts at what she imagined would be a comedy club, but upon her arrival she discovered it was a Chinese restaurant! Kung Pao Kosher Comedy as been operating since 1993 and was the country’s first Jewish comedy show on Christmas that took place in a Chinese restaurant and has been Featured in the New York Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Forward. This legendary event has boasted a Who’s Who of household name Jewish comedians including Henny Youngman , Shelley Berman, David Brenner, and Elayne Boosler.
