Come celebrate Christmas the Jewish Way—in a Chinese restaurant with Jewish comedy! Now in its 14th year, Kung Pao Kosher Comedy continues to provide an answer to the age-old question, “What are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?”

What started out as a joke by Kung Pao creator/San Francisco-based Jewish stand-up comic, Lisa Geduldig, has become an institution in San Francisco, annually giving 3000 comedy aficionados and those escaping “Christmas-mania” an alternative to Jingle Bells and The Nutcracker. It’s the Bar Mitzvah you never had - and you don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy it!

The shows feature 4 hot and sour Jewish comedians. This year’s headliner is Cathy Ladman (The Tonight Show, Politically Incorrect); the show also features Stephanie Blum (Star Search winner, HBO's Comedy Minutes); Dan Ahdoot (Last Comic Standing); and your hostess, Lisa Geduldig.

There are 8 shows over the course of 4 days: an early Dinner and a later Cocktail Show each day. Seating is at tables
