Eman El-Husseini

Since her comedy debut in 2006 Eman El-Husseini has racked up an impressive list of credits.
Travelling across Canada, the U.S and the Middle East she covers a wide range of topics,from how lesbians are the new gentlemen to her parents’ wedding anniversary landing on, you guessed it, September 11th.

A media darling of sorts, Eman has been featured in major Canadian newspapers such as The National Post, The Toronto Star and The Montreal Gazette. She has also appeared regularly on radio stations such as CJAD, CBC, and CKUT. Her TV credits include a half hour comedy special on CTV, Comedy Network and the iChannel.

The Montreal Gazette describes her as “Fearless and ferociously funny” and named her “The queen of Montreal comedy“ “It’s someone that needs to be discovered. She is really funny. I don’t think that anyone can be disappointed after seeing her perform. As soon as she finishes her first joke, people will already love her.” – Mike Ward
