Jess Salomon is a Canadian comedian who recently made the move to New York with her Muslim wife because she has excellent comedic timing.
Since making the move to the USA, Jess was selected to be a 2017 StandUP NBC finalist and had her stand up featured on SiriusXM’s Raw Dog. She’s done lots of cool festivals in America like the Laughing Skull Festival, San Francisco Sketch Fest and the Boston Comedy Festival.
In Canada she’s been in Just for Laugh’s OFF JFL, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, and the Odd Block Comedy Festival as well as on CBC’s “The Debaters”. Her stand up has aired on CBC Television and can be heard on SiriusXM’s “Canada Laughs” and CBC’s “LOL”.
Jess has appeared in major Canadian papers such as The Toronto Star, The Montreal Gazette and The National Post, as well as on CBC (Q, Day Six, Daybreak), CJAD, The Beat, and CHOM radio. Her writing has appeared in VICE and The Beaverton.
Fun fact: before comedy Jess used to be a U.N. war crimes lawyer. The jury is still out on whether this was a good move.
