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 September 11th.
Eman has performed at the New York Arab American Comedy Festival, Amman Standup Comedy Festival, Ha!ifax Comedy Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, Charleston Comedy Festival, the 5th Annual Arab Women in Film show, as well as in Sirius XM’s Top Comic finals at JFL42, and here at Just For Laughs!
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 on CTV’s Comedy Now!, George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight’s “Best Joke Ever,” The Debaters on CBC Radio, and in a half hour comedy special on CTV.
The Montreal Gazette describes her as “Fearless and ferociously funny” and named her “The Queen of Montreal comedy”.
