New-York based Marina Franklin is emerging as one of the hottest comedians in the comedy scene today, with such notable appearances as, HBO’s Crashing, The Movie Trainwreck, Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, Conan O’Brien, Louie Season V, The Jim Gaffigan Show, Showtime’s Women Who Kill, and The Chappelle’s Show.

She is a favorite in Comedy Festivals across the world, like Melbourne Comedy Festival, Scotland’s Glasgow Comedy Festival, BBC’s World Stand’s Up, Rotterdam’s Comedy Factory, Montreal’s Just For Laughs, Ireland’s Kilkenny Comedy Festival, and Nashville’s Bonnaroo Music Festival. Franklin is viciously likeable, if there is such a thing.
