In this week’s episode of the Gay City News podcast “Thank You For Coming Out,” creator and host Dubbs Weinblatt (they/ them) welcomes comedians Jess Salomon (she/her) and Eman El-Husseini (she/her).
The El-Salomons are a married Jewish-Palestinian lesbian comedy couple 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 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
. They are also the hosts of the top-rated podcast, “Comedians vs The News
” on the BBC World Service available Friday nights, wherever you get your pods!
As queer people, we are constantly coming out, and each coming out story is unique in its blend of humor, heartache, worry, and wonder. “Thank You For Coming Out,” inspired by Dubbs’ beloved live comedy show of the same name, pairs them as host with lesbian, gay, trans, bi, non-binary, and more members of the queer community to discuss their coming out stories.
Listen in to our latest incredible journey into the LGBTQ communities’ vulnerable and often hilarious stories of coming out.
