Comedy Returns to El Rio! (Mon, August 13)
Kung Pao Kosher Comedy Presents...
Comedy Returns to El Rio!
Now in its 4th year, this popular monthly (every 2nd Monday of the month) comedy show features the best of Bay Area comedians and beyond. The show takes place at El Rio in The Mission District as that is where San Francisco comedian and comedy producer, Lisa Geduldig (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Funny Girlz), began her stand up comedy career 23 years ago.
The August 13th El Rio show features a mish mosh of comedians who bring a wide range of talents in addition to comedy to the table: Nathan Habib (began stand up at 14!), Brendan Lynch (SF SketchFest), Andrea Carla Michaels (semi-professional Scrabble player and NY Times crossword puzzle creator), Nina G (the world's only female stuttering stand up), and hostess Lisa Geduldig.
Nathan Habib is one of the youngest comics in the business. His comedy is intelligent and performed with an awkwardly confident attitude. Born in Belgium and raised in Palo Alto, Nathan was brought up in a Jewish Israeli household with a Latvian mother, an Italian raised dad, and two older brothers giving him plenty of diversity and experience to talk about. Just having graduated from UC Santa Cruz, Nathan has been doing comedy since his freshman year of high school. He has performed all over the Bay Area with comics such as Arj Barker, Rich Vos, and Robert Duchaine and has recently begun performing in LA. Nathan performed at Kung Pao Kosher Comedy in 2010. www.nathanhabib.com
Brendan Lynch has established himself as a comedian to look out for in the Bay Area. He has performed at SF SketchFest, has had college crowds clamoring for extensions, and has appeared all over California. Don't by deceived by Brendan's low-key manner. Prepare yourself for an outrageous slice outside the cookie cutter of life. Brendan's astute observational comedy will surprise you with its bold sarcasm and absurd twists.
Andrea Carla Michaels is a storyteller who returned to the stage a few years ago after a 15 year gap. Total word-freak, Andrea names companies and products for a living, constructs crosswords for the NY Times, and plays Scrabble semi-professionally. The highlight of her life (until tonight) was winning a motorhome on "The Wheel of Fortune."
Nina G is the world's only female stuttering stand up comedian. She is also a storyteller and educator and has presented to countless audiences. Nina brings her humor to help people confront and understand social justice issues such as disability, diversity, and equity. She has appeared on the Howard Stern news channel and is part of the Comedians with Disabilities Act. She is currently performing with "Comedians with Disabilities Act," a comedy tour made up entirely of performers with different disabilities.
Lisa Geduldig is the creator, producer, & MC of a variety of annual comedy shows: Kung Pao Kosher Comedy: Jewish comedy in Christmas in a Chinese Restaurant (now in its 20th year); The George Bush Going Away Party; Funny Girlz; A Muslim, A Mormon, and A Jew Walk into A Bar; The Color of Funny; Cafe con Comedy; Charo... She is also a bilingual (Spanish-English) arts publicist and budding filmmaker.
Must be over 21 as it's a bar. Tickets on sale on a sliding scale basis: $7 to $20.
