Marina Franklin is a veteran comedian, actor, writer, and host whose long tenure as a stand-up standout at premier comedy venues and festivals around the world – alongside her memorable TV and film appearances, and critically acclaimed podcast – have made her a fan favorite and in-demand creative force.
The Chicago native’s onscreen credits include HBO’s “Crashing”; the hit 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 Comedy Central’s “Chappelle’s Show”. Marina’s writing credits include HBO’s “Divorce.”
Marina is a favorite at comedy festivals around the world, including the 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. Her podcast, Friends Like Us, features a diverse group of women comedians of color – and their occasional male guests – and their takes on the news of the day.
A viciously likable person – if there is such a thing – Marina is a University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana and Syracuse University graduate. She resides in New York City and loves dancing, house music, talking shit, and working on her sweet right hook.
Marina's first ever stand-up special, 'Single Black Female,' is available now via the Comedy Dynamics Network on iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Comcast, Spectrum, Dish, Google Play, and more. Her album is available on iTunes, Spotify, SiriusXM, Pandora, Google Play and more.
