Jess Salomon is a former UN war crimes lawyer turned stand-up comic. The Montreal Metro has called her comedy “charming and intelligent.”
Jess’s festival credits include Just for Laugh’s OFFJFL and ZOOFEST, San Francisco Sketchfest, the Laughing Skull Festival, Boston Women in Comedy Festival, Cape Fear Comedy Festival, and the Ice Breakers Festival. She’s recorded a TV Special as part of the iChannel’s No Kidding series and in 2015 was a semi-finalist in SiriusXM’s Top Comic competition. Her writing has appeared in VICE and The Beaverton and her stand-up has been featured on SiriusXM’s Canada Laughs and CBC’s Laugh out Loud.
When she’s not writing and performing Jess likes to check in with her old colleagues in The Hague. She enjoys hearing how sad the war criminals are without her observational wit and storytelling to keep them going. She believes they are jealous of her comedy audience and regret what they have done.
