Comedy Returns to El Rio!

Comedy Returns to El Rio! is a popular monthly comedy show (every 3rd Thursday of the month) co-produced by Kung Pao Kosher Comedy's Lisa Geduldig and El Rio. The show, now in its 9th year, takes place at El Rio in San Francisco's Mission District and showcases an eclectic, multicultural mix of intelligent, progressive comedians from the Bay Area and beyond.

This months show, which takes place on Thursday, August 17, features Bob McIntyre, Carla Clayy, Kat Evasco, Ian Williams, and Lisa Geduldig.

Bob McIntyre is a San Francisco based waiter, comic, and occasional actor who is currently binge watching his recently purchased 38-disc, 325-episode Mary Hartman Mary Hartman box set.

She is a recipient of the Creative Capacity Fund Quick Grant, NextGen Art Professional Development Grant, and the Zellerbach Family Foundation Grant and holds a BA in Asian American Studies from San Francisco State University.
