Comedy Returns to El Rio! (Mon, July 11)
Kung Pao Kosher Comedy Presents...
Comedy Returns to El Rio!

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, July 11th show features: David Hawkins, Yayne Abeba, Joe Nguyen, Harmon Leon, & Lisa Geduldig.

David Hawkins' manic style mixes pop culture fanaticism with punk rock cynicism into a style both nerdy and naughty. He has performed at the Yerba Buena Center, the National Queer Arts Festival, and has co-hosted SF LGBT Center's Anniversary events. He produces and hosts various weekly comedy shows in San Francisco.

Yayne Abeba is a native San Franciscan of Ethiopian descent. She began studying acting at the Jean Shelton Actor's Lab in 1995 and was bitten by the comedy bug four years later at The Luggage Store. She is one of San Francisco's up and coming comedians. Her style is fresh, innovative, cutting edge and just damn funny. She won The 2002 Russian River Comedy Competition and competed in several San Francisco International Comedy Competitions as well as the Seattle Comedy Competition.

Joe Nguyen, growing up in Georgia as the child of a Vietnamese refugee father and a Jewish mother, was destined to be a comedian. After attending Pomona College in Southern California, he moved to San Francisco and began performing stand up comedy.  His smart writing, likable stage presence, and broad range of joke topics make Joe a crowd favorite, appealing to audiences of all backgrounds.  Joe is the producer and co-host of Scantily Clad Comedy, a weekly showcase at the Clubhouse in San Francisco every Friday night at 9pm. Joe is a veteran of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy 2010.

Harmon Leon is a comedian, filmmaker, and author. He has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Last Call With Carson Daly, Penn & Teller's Bullshit, VH1, as well as the BBC. He's performed comedy around the globe including the Edinburgh, Melbourne, and Montreal comedy festivals. Harmon is also the author of 6 books including National Lampoons Road Trip USA. His stories have appeared in Esquire, Wired, Salon, Penthouse, and Maxim. You can read his columns on The Huffington Post and at the SF Chronicle's

Lisa Geduldig is the creator, producer, & MC of a variety of annual comedy shows: Kung Pao Kosher Comedy; The George Bush Going Away Party; Funny Girlz; A Muslim, A Mormon, and A Jew Walk into A Bar; The Color of Funny; Comedy Returns to El Rio; Cafe con Comedy; Charo...
