Marina Franklin (USA) already appeared on several Comedy Festivals all over the world such as Melbourne Comedy Festival, Scotland’s Glasgow Comedy Festival, BC’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, (take a breath!), but now she is coming to the International Comedy Festival Rotterdam! Marina is an upcoming comedian who lives in New York City. Stand-up comedy wasn’t her first experience in the entertainment world, she originally started with acting and performed at the Illinois Rep Theatre in Chicago where her passion for comedy started. She continued to study acting at Syracuse University and earned lots of comedy appearances on shows by e.g. Wanda Sykes, 'Herlarious', 'Showtime’s Women Who Kill', 'Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show', 'The Jay Leno Show', 'Chappelle’s show', 'Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn', 'Last Comic Standing' on NBC and 'Showtime at The Apollo'. Franklin’s work is sharp-tongued and sympathetic at the same time.
