Great comedy show! Diverse comedians - all very professional.
Some problems with the theater opening on time though. Made for long lines and late start. Should be corrected for future shows.

Very Good. Performers were talented and entertaining. Good diversity of cultures and related jokes were good. Very limited use of bad words and profanity. Enjoyed it.

Very disappointed in the venue, however. Will Call (having paid ticket price PLUS a service charge!) had to stand in long line with those who had not yet purchased tickets. Very poorly run venue.

About the Ticket Supplier: Kung Pao Kosher Comedy

Kung Pao Kosher Comedy was created in 1993 by accident by San Francisco comedian Lisa Geduldig, who went to perform in South Hadley, Massachusetts at what she thought was going to be a comedy club. Peking Garden Club turned out to be a Chinese Restaurant. After telling Jewish jokes at a Chinese restaurant, a conversation between Lisa and her old summer camp friend, Tobi Sovak, led to the creation of Kung Pao Kosher Comedy.

The event started out as a community service for all Jews who have ever been stuck on Christmas with nothing to do but hide under the covers, contemplate midnight Mass, or visit a Chinese restaurant... The audience has expanded to include Chinese-Jewish couples, interfaith ones, singles, families, gay people, straight people, undecided ones, those who are far from home, and just generally people who like smart comedy mixed with Chinese food.
