During the pandemic, comedians worldwide have taken to Zoom to continue performing their craft and paying their rent. In July 2020, Lisa Geduldig, the creator and producer of the acclaimed Kung Pao Kosher Comedy™ - Jewish comedy on Christmas in a Chinese Restaurant (the 28th annual took place online last December with over 2000 viewers worldwide, and the 2021 version will be an in-person and livestream hybrid) and other popular San Francisco comedy shows, launched a monthly comedy series Lockdown Comedy (on the 3rd Thursday of the month). Performers have included London’s Shazia Mirza, Canada’s Elvira Kurt, LA’s Cathy Ladman, Wendy Liebman, and Greg Proops, NY’s Ophira Eisenberg and Jackie Hoffman, and from Florida Arline Geduldig (Lisa’s 90 year old mother with whom she has been spending the pandemic in Florida), and Lisa Geduldig.
On August 19th, Lockdown Comedy continues its Zoom show with an all-star line-up: Jason Stuart (LA), Vijai Nathan (Washington DC), Dan St Paul (SF), Lisa Geduldig (back in SF after a year plus in Florida), and her 90 year old mom, Arline Geduldig (Florida).
Lisa’s nonagenarian mother, Arline, with whom she hunkered down and spent over a year in lockdown in Florida, is each month’s special guest. Arline did stand up for her first time last July in the virtual comedy club her daughter has been running out of her retirement community home. Arline and Lisa were recently featured in a Los Angeles Times article, How A California Comic Launched A Virtual Stand-up Show and Discovered A New Star: Mom and in a KTVU Channel 2 segment Mother-Daughter Duo Perform Lockdown Comedy.
Since the monthly Lockdown Comedy shows cater to audiences of 100-250 monthly throughout the US and some internationally, the show will continue on ZOOM for the foreseeable future even as venues begin to open The title Lockdown Comedy may change to Agoraphobia Comedy to cater to those who don’t want to go out and like staying in watching live comedy from the comfort of their couch in their jammies. Or not.
Lisa and her tech co-host/DJ, Sandy O present the monthly show on Zoom, featuring comedians from around the US and occasionally across the globe.
