The El-Salomons take the motto ‘make love not war’ very personally. Jess Salomon (hilarious comic who has appeared on The Tonight Show) and Eman El-Husseini (also hilarious comic who has opened for Patton Oswalt) 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 duo. From the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, to San Francisco Sketch Fest, to the Boston Women in Comedy Festival, and even to the Arctic, where they have been making people laugh, spreading love, and trying not to get a divorce.

The El-Salomons have been featured on NowThis and PBS News Hour, as well as in Curve Magazine, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post. Have they brought peace to the Middle East? Not yet. But if you come to their show you’re helping them get a little closer.
