Closing Night Comedy featuring the El-Salomons

Uproarious comedy closes the festival LIVE from the stage of the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre.

Vancouver comedian, Kyle Berger (co-producer of Rise of the Comics and last seen by Chutzpah! audiences with Shticks & Giggles) opens the show as he hosts local stand-up comedy favourites including, Joey Commisso and Julie Kim. Following by a hilarious second half hosted by Iris Bahr and our headliners, The El-Salomons.

The El-Salomons are a married Jewish-Palestinian lesbian comedy couple (Jess Salomon & Eman El-Husseini) who after years of performing solo decided to add yet another challenge to their relationship: A duo act! Now they tell jokes about one another, in front each other. A sacrifice they make for the fans. Jess and Eman mix jokes and stories inspired by the politics of their relationship with observational humour about love in general. 

Jess Salomon (The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon) and Eman El-Husseini (Just for Laughs) met and fell in love at a comedy club in Montreal a decade ago. After just one year of performing together this hilarious couple recorded a comedy special at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival, now available in Canada on Crave TV.
