Eman El-Husseini

Eman, El-Husseini

Since her comedy debut, Eman El-Husseini has racked up an impressive list of credits. Traveling across Canada, the U.S and the Middle East she covers a wide range of topics, from how lesbians are the new gentlemen, to her parents’ wedding anniversary landing on, you guessed it, September 11th. A media darling of sorts, Eman has been featured in major Canadian newspapers such as The National Post, The Toronto Star and The Montreal Gazette. She has also appeared regularly on radio stations such as CJAD, CBC, and CKUT. Her TV credits include a half hour comedy special on CTV, Comedy Network and the iChannel. Eman just launched the podcast Unheard Of: Sex, Religion and Politics at the Dinner Table, interviewing a wide range of ordinary people with unconventional lives. Her guests vary from a former Jehovah’s Witness, to people who are transgender and asexual, to a convert to Islam and a porn actor, to name a few.
