Comedy Returns to El Rio! (Mon, Jan 10)
Kung Pao Kosher Comedy Presents...
Comedy Returns to El Rio!
Every 2nd Monday of the month @ 8pm at El Rio.
The next show is Monday, Jan 10th.
Comedian/comedy producer, Lisa Geduldig, (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy) began her stand up comedy career 21 years ago at El Rio in San Francisco's Mission District. She strives to produce multicultural, multi-everything comedy shows with the variety of shows she produces each year (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Funny Girlz, The Color of Funny). The line-ups are always a diverse cultural, gender, and sexual orientation mix, and her comedy productions showcase some of the funniest and smartest stand up comics from San Francisco and beyond.
**Jan 9th update: The show will now be a BENEFIT (100% of the proceeds) for the TUCSON ARTS BRIGADE (TAB), a small
community arts and action nonprofit working to overcome hatred and violence through the arts.
TAB provides a place for disconnected youth to make art, work together with other members of their community, think critically, and find other ways to use their energy...than going out and buying guns. www.tucsonartsbrigade.org

Locally, Ray has performed at QComedy, Writers with Drinks, The Castro Street Fair, Funny Girlz, and various other sundry comedy/spoken word venues. RayÃ¢ÂÂs comedy looks at how hilarious it is to be Cuban, Irish and queer. Ray is the host of the monthly "Dynasty Night," an evening of costume-wearing, camp-loving TV-watching in a Beaux Arts mansion on Lake Merritt in beautiful Oakland.
CANDY CHURILLA's dark, edgy act includes topics ranging from men, her love of cocktails, pop culture, and more. What this lovably twisted comic lacks in self-control, she makes up for in self-involvement. Her life started humbly enough in Scranton, PA where she learned to drink. As a little girl, she dreamed of escaping Scranton to make a better life for herself and she finally has--in Oakland where she hosts the monthly Backroom Comedy at McNallyÃ¢ÂÂs Irish Pub. Candy won 3rd place in CAÃ¢ÂÂs Funniest Female Contest and appeared on Last Comic Standing.
