Quick Dish NY: THE EL-SALOMONS SAVE CHRISTMAS 12.10 at The Duplex
Who is going to save Christmas from the haters? Why it’s none other than the Jewish-Muslim-Palestinian-Lesbian married couple known as The El-Salomons! The question is, are they qualified enough? Well, 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 a single year of performing together they recorded a comedy special for Crave TV at the prestigious Just for Laughs Festival. They traveled everywhere from San Francisco Sketch Fest, to the Boston Women in Comedy Festival, and to the freezing Arctic. And FINALLY, together with you all, they get to fully celebrate Christmas this December 10th at The Duplex and, in the process, figure out the true meaning of the holiday. I think they are more than qualified. The El-Salomons will be joined by their friends:
Jessica Kirson (Comedy Central, HBO)
Marie Faustin (Broad City, The Unofficial Expert Podcast)
George Civeris (Just for Laughs, Gayme Show)
