Not exactly eating ... but caffeine.
When I get stressed out, my caffeine intake goes way up, from an average of 6-8 mugs a day to 15-16 a day. Plus longer and longer walks. I find talking long walks and trying to sort all the stuff in my head during that time a pretty good stress reliever. May be this isn't exactly beating comfort eating, but sometimes long walks help me get de-stressed (and by inference, reduce the stress related side effects)
Somehow, I just can't get myself to eat when stressed (the odd ice cream being the only exception), so in that sense I am the very opposite of a comfort eater. I invariably lose weight after a stressful time.
