    eman el husseiniComedian Eman El Husseini is the bomb—and that's not just because she's Palestinian, Muslim and queer. 

    She and her wife, Jewish comedian Jess Salomon, are based in New York City. Eman is also an astute social observer, read her stuff here!

    jess-solomon.jpgJess Salomon describes herself as a "comedian, writer and family disappointment." 

    She is a former UN war crimes lawyer turned stand up comic. The Montreal Metro has called her comedy “charming and intelligent.”

    When she’s not writing and performing Jess likes to check in with her old colleagues in The Hague. She enjoys hearing how sad the war criminals are without her observational wit and storytelling to keep them going. She believes they are jealous of her comedy audience and regret what they have done.
