Marina Franklin
New York–based Marina Franklin is emerging as one of the hottest comedians on the comedy scene today, with such notable appearances as The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Jay Leno Show, The Awkward Comedy Show, Chappelle's Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, Season 2 of NBC's Last Comic Standing, VH1's Black to the Future, Comedy Central's Premium Blend, Showtime at the Apollo and Showtime's Women Who Kill.

Franklin's career in entertainment wasn't always in stand-up comedy. Originally from Chicago, she made her acting debut at the Illinois Rep Theatre. She then quickly realized her love for acting and went on to pursue an MFA in acting at Syracuse University. She recently acted in the Jim Gaffigan pilot for CBS. Franklin is viciously likeable—if there is such a thing.
