Former war crimes lawyer who decided it was time to get serious.
Jess Salomon is a Canadian comedian who recently made the move to New York with her Muslim wife because she has excellent comedic timing.
A 2017 StandUP NBC finalist, Jess's comedy has been featured on SiriusXM’s Raw Dog. In Canada, her stand up has aired on CBC Television and can be heard on SiriusXM’s Canada Laughs and CBC’s LOL. Jess has been selected for the 2018 Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
While a lot of comics describe themselves as “raw” and “unapologetic”, Jess is doing something new that she likes to call apologetic comedy. It involves a lot of checking in with the crowd and taking the audience's feelings into account in a very edgy and extreme way.
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.
