On today's episode, I talk to stand-up and writer Marina Franklin.
Originally from Chicago, she moved to New York in 1997 after
getting her Master's degree in theater. Two short years later, she
made the decision to pursue comedy as a career and since then has
appeared in numerous shows including Chappelle's Show,
Inside Amy Schumer, and The Nightly Show.
Marina's performed stand-up on Last Comic Standing,
John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show, the Showtime special
Women Who Kill, and most recently killed it on Conan, as well as internationally at festivals like
the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Montreal’s Just For Laughs, and
Ireland’s Kilkenny Comedy Festival. Most recently, Marina has been
working as a writer on the new Sharon Horgan HBO show
