Comedian/comedy producer, Lisa Geduldig, began her stand up comedy career 22 years ago at El Rio in San Francisco's Mission District. In commemoration of her 20th year in comedy, two years ago she launched a monthly comedy night, Comedy Returns to El Rio! the second Monday of the month at the club that first put her onstage.
The Monday, Nov 14th show features:
Diane Amos, Paco Romane, Loren Kraut, Mike Spiegelman, and Lisa Geduldig

PACO ROMANE is a familiar face to Bay Area fans of comedy and music. He performs year round and is a regular performer of comedy in the Bay Area and around the country. He was awarded "Best Comedian" by The SF Bay Guardian in 2005 and was runner-up in 2007, and 2008.

LOREN KRAUT was a finalist in the Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition in 2007 and 2009. Her style is laid-back and somewhat dark, covering such subjects as her obsessive-compulsive disorder and anorexia or writing the perfect suicide note. She can be seen throughout the Bay Area touching or counting anything that needs touching or counting most recently at The Purple Onion, The Clubhouse, Rooster T. Feathers, Harvey's Funny Tuesdays, The Wharf Room, and at a coffee shop near you.
