Christmas comes but once a year, and every once in a while Hanukkah sneaks up on it. This year's Festival of Lights starts on Christmas Eve, making the last week of 2016 all the merrier (that shouldn't be too hard).

22nd Annual Kung Pao Kosher Comedy

Dec 18, 2014

  

"What are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?"  Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay Thursday night, comic Lisa Geduldig, says it's an age-old question that she answered 21 years ago with her now annual show Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Jewish comedians telling jokes in a Chinese restaurant on Christmas, Christmas Eve, and this year, Boxing Day, too. Two shows nightly this year feature NPR program host Ophira Eisenberg,14-year-old Simon Cadel (Kung Pao's youngest comic ever), Jeremy Hotz and Lisa Geduldig, who also serves as Master of Ceremonies.  Hear a taste of all four comedians on tonight's Out in the Bay, and about Kung Pao Kosher Comedy's history and a little bit of San Francisco's queer history from producer Geduldig. (Airs 7pm Thursday, Dec. 18.)
