Jess Salomon & Eman El-Husseini
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.
Jess and Eman got married and left Canada for America right before the last election. They are famous for their love, their stand up and their ability to make really REALLY fantastic life choices.
