New Asia Restaurant

San Francisco’s annual Jewish Christmas tradition, Kung Pao Kosher Comedy™ celebrates it 25th Anniversary on December 23 thru December 25! The legendary Jewish-comedy-on-Christmas-in-a-Chinese-restaurant extravaganza has been featuring household name Jewish comedians and Yiddish proverbs in its fortune cookies for over two decades. Kung Pao is San Francisco's longest-running comedy show and caters to 2200 people annually. Taking place over the course of 3 days during Christmas with 2 shows a day, it’s the brainchild of San Francisco-based comedian, Lisa Geduldig, and solves the age-old question, “What are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?” This year, Kung Pao features a BEST OF with 3 headliners: Cathy Ladman (one of the country's top comedians, The Tonight Show nine times, the last two Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show Anniversary shows, TV credits: Mad Men, Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Everybody Loves Raymond) Gary Gulman (has performed on every late night comedy show, his comedy special, Gary Gulman: In This Economy? is one of the 5 best comedy specials currently airing on Netflix) Wendy Liebman (Carson, Letterman, Leno, Fallon, Kimmel, Ferguson, Hollywood Squares, HBO, Comedy Central, and Showtime specials, America's Got Talent Semi-Finalist) and Lisa Geduldig (Kung Pao creator). Partial proceeds benefit: JFCS Sonoma County North Bay Fire Relief and JCC Puerto Rico Hurricane Maria Relief Fund Two shows a day: 5pm Dinner Show (7-course dinner): $72 8:30pm Cocktail Show (Veggie Dim Sum): $52 Website Links: http://www.garygulman.com/ http://www.wendyliebman.com/ http://www.cathyladman.com/ https://www.koshercomedy.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KungPaoKosherComedy Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/kungpaokosher
