The El-Salomons take the motto ‘make love not war’ very personally. Jess Salomon (hilarious comic) and Eman El-Husseini (also hilarious comic) met and fell in love at a comedy club in Montreal nearly a decade ago when a friend of theirs suggested, “you two broads should kiss”.
Jess is Jewish and Eman is Palestinian (basically enemies), one is a Taurus and one is a Leo (ENEMIES!!), but they somehow make it work. It’s probably the hummus.
Now based in New York, these two accomplished comedians have been hitting stages as a stand up duo. From the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, to San Francisco Sketchfest, to the Arctic, and even to Brooklyn, they have been making people laugh, spreading love, and trying not to get a divorce.
As The El-Salomons, Jess and Eman have been profiled in The Washington Post, Haaretz, The Huffington Post, as well as by NowThis and PBS Vermont amongst other media.
If you’re not following their weekly cartoons, illustrated by Jesse Brown, on Instagram what are you even doing??
