Kung Pao Kosher Comedy is a merger of two beloved traditions among American Jews: comedy and going out for Chinese food on Christmas. The 26th annual event, headlined this year by stand-up veteran and former “Seinfeld” writer Carol Leifer, will feature two shows each on Dec. 23, Christmas Eve and Christmas day — the early ones with a set-menu dinner and the late ones with veggie dim sum.

5 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 23, Monday, Dec. 24 and Tuesday, Dec. 25 at New Asia Restaurant, 772 Pacific Ave., S.F. $72 dinner show, $52 cocktail show.
