"What are Jews supposed to do on Christmas?"  Eric Jansen's guest on Out in the Bay Thursday night, comic Lisa Geduldig, says it's an age-old question that she answered 21 years ago with her now annual show Kung Pao Kosher Comedy, Jewish comedians telling jokes in a Chinese restaurant on Christmas, Christmas Eve, and this year, Boxing Day, too. Two shows nightly this year feature NPR program host Ophira Eisenberg,14-year-old Simon Cadel (Kung Pao's youngest comic ever), Jeremy Hotz and Lisa Geduldig, who also serves as Master of Ceremonies.  Hear a taste of all four comedians on tonight's Out in the Bay, and about Kung Pao Kosher Comedy's history and a little bit of San Francisco's queer history from producer Geduldig. (Airs 7pm Thursday, Dec. 18.)This year's Kung Pao Kosher Comedy takes place Dec. 24 - 26 in the New Asia Restaurant in San Francisco's Chinatown, 722 Pacific Ave. Tickets and other info at KosherComedy.com
