Jess Salomon

Jess Salomon is a former UN war crimes lawyer turned stand up comic. The Montreal Metro has called her comedy “charming and intelligent”. She calls it “raconteur-ish, satirical, dirty on a good night”. Her 93 year old grandmother calls it “time to go back to law and find a husband”.

A rising star on the Canadian comedy scene, Jess has quickly become a regular at clubs in Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, and NYC. She has produced and starred in two solo shows, Doing Good and Obsession, appeared on CBC’s “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight,” on Sun News Network’s “Straight Talk with Pat Bolland” as a contributing pundit, and in major Canadian papers such as The Toronto Star, The Montreal Gazette and The National Post. Her festival credits include ZOOFEST (2013), Out of Bounds Comedy Festival (September, 2013) and The She-Devil Comedy Festival (October, 2013).

Jess recently recorded her first TV Special as part of the iChannel’s “No Kidding” series airing in early 2014.
