Eman El-Husseini

Eman, El-Husseini

A Canadian, a Palestinian, a Muslim, and a lesbian walk into a bar… ladies and gentlemen, it’s just Eman El-Husseini. Yes, she’s all those catastrophic identities rolled into one - her life is a current event. From the Muslim ban to Palestinian rights and marriage equality to the ice cream truck that insists on parking in front of her building, it’s all happening and it’s happening to her, especially. Strap in and get comfortable, Eman has a lot to work through. 

In her decade-long comedy career, she has headlined across Canada, opened for Patton Oswalt, and recorded her first comedy album, Unveiled, which can be heard regularly on SiriusXM Radio. She currently lives in New York City, legally, thank you very much.
