Kung Pao Kosher Comedy Presents... |
Comedy Returns to El Rio!
Now in its 5th year, this monthly (every 2nd Monday of the month) multicultural comedy show features the best of Bay Area comedians and beyond. It takes place at El Rio, where SF comedian/comedy producer, Lisa Geduldig (Kung Pao Kosher Comedy) began her stand up comedy career 24 years ago.
The July 8th show features Sammy Obeid (on his way to his 1000th consecutive day of comedy shows), Eve Meyer (Executive Director of SF Suicide Prevention), Johan Miranda (Peruvian-born), Kate Willett (Comikaze Lounge), and Lisa Geduldig.
Sammy Obeid graduated from UC Berkeley with a double major in Applied Mathematics and Business...to become a comedian. The Lebanese-American Oakland-born comic recently appeared on America's Got Talent, advancing to the Las Vegas round. His style has been described as intelligent, inspiring, and a youthful perspective that reaches all ages. Recently placing in the top 3 of the San Francisco International Comedy Competition amongst veteran comedians of 15 years or more, Sammy's 6 years in comedy have proven explosive. Sammy is attempting to complete 1,000 consecutive days of performing. He currently holds the world record with 908. The July 8th show will be day 926. September 20, 2013 will mark his 1000th consecutive day. He has not missed a day of performing since Christmas 2010. http://www.sammyko.com
Eve Meyer has spent the last 20 years as The Executive Director of San Francisco Suicide Prevention and the last eighteen years as the mother of Gabriel Edlin, recently named high school citywide runner-up offensive lineback. Along the way she developed a sense of humor. She honed her skills doing solo performances at The Marsh and appearances at the annual Camp Mather talent shows. This will be Eve's second time at El Rio.
Johan Miranda, who began his comedy debut in 2010, has performed all around the Bay Area. Inspired by the likes of Dave Chappell, Chris Rock, and Louis C.K., the Peruvian-born comic quips playfully about everyday life from timely MySpace jokes to his perpetual fear of spiders. Johan has performed at LA's Comedy Store, the San Jose Improv, 142 Throckmorton Theatre, and the Purple Onion. He placed 2nd in San Francisco's Walk the Plank competition and was awarded a sponsored submission to the 2012 Arizona Comedy Festival.
