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, personal, 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 New York City. 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) The She-Devil Comedy Festival (October, 2013) and San Francisco Sketchfest (January, 2014).
