Laughing From Right to Wrong!
Building on the success of the "Kosher Jokes for the Halaladays" tour and late-night
conversations at the bar where Jess and Eman single-handedly solve the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict only to wake up and find that it's still going on, "Pretty Semitic" celebrates the
things we have in common … humor, hairiness and the pressure to find husbands.
Jess and Eman will be joined by host, Mona of the New York Arab American Comedy Festival
and opening act, up and coming local Semite and former Soviet, Liza Treyger.
How likable is Pretty Semitic's headline act? "The Israelis liked me so much they kept me at the
airport for three hours and a half," jokes Eman, who, in her five year career has appeared in the
Just for Laughs, Amman and Halifax Comedy Festivals; performed all over the world including,
Jerusalem, Ramallah and Nazareth; and had her own half hour comedy special on the Comedy
Network in Canada.
Eman will be supported by hilarious war crimes lawyer-turned-comic Jess Salomon. "People
often ask me: what made you decide to leave the law and pursue comedy? I decided it was time to
get serious," deadpans Jess Salomon.
