Eman El Huseini is a veteran Montreal comic that about to do a live-taping this Wednesday at Club Soda. We used a lot of buzz words in that first sentence so we're sure we don't have to emphasis what a BIG DEAL this is. We've had the good fortune of watching Eman's career rise over the last few years and had some itching and burnings questions we needed to ask.

Who would you most like to meet dead or alive?

I get starstruck so easily. I’m a huge Madonna fan and remember running into her ex Carlos Leon on the street and I couldn’t feel my knees so I can only imagine what would happen to me if I met her. Another time I was backstage getting ready to get on Stroumboulopoulos comedy panel and SLASH was there, I loove him, so I was determined to take a photo with him but I actually lost all speaking ability. So I probably shouldn’t meet anyone who is a celeb although I really want to hug Betty White so badly.

What is your favourite dessert?

So hard to pick just one but if I had to, it’s this Arabic dessert called Knafa, it’s cheesy and syrupy. Just amazing.

How many years have you been doing comedy?

9 long years. 

Which comedian has been most inspiring to you?

Before I marry Jess Salomon I really wanted to marry Bill Burr. I obviously have a thing for funny red heads.

What is your favourite 90's movie?

Sister Act, no question.

You're getting married soon. Congrats! Is Brunch Club invited? How many plus ones can we have?

Hahaha, yes absolutely. I heart Brunch Club, send me your list and we’ll see what we can do.

Do you think you'd be a good Jeopardy contestant?

No, I’m uncomfortable with the concept. What do you mean you’re giving me the answer and I have to figure out the question.
