Hi friends! Let’s meet Marina Franklin, this week’s funny human. She’s an excellent NYC-based standup comic, who you might recognize from her appearances on Conan, Louie, Chappelle’s Show, and Trainwreck! Let’s watch her awesome Conan set to get acquainted!
“You can truly know a person once you know their most embarrassing story.” -Matt Byrne. That’s a quote I just wrote. Let’s truly get to know Marina, with a story she shares with future funny human Sean Donnelly!
Sometimes TV gets it right and features amazing comedians doing their art onscreen semi-regularly, and this is one of those instances. Here’s a clip from an appearance on the dearly departed John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show.
Here’s an episode of comedian Rachel Feinstein’s advice webseries Reel Advice, that Marina appeared on! Things get weird fast!
Sometimes Marina is also a guest on the news! Here she is on some MSNBC show talking about beer goggles and unsavory booze-fueled hookups! The world is a crazy place.
Marina hosts the very good podcast Friends Like Us, which is billed as “a podcast featuring women of color with very different views on hot topics.” Here’s a short, animated clip accompanied by a fiery excerpt from the show that finds Marina going off on the always-controversial Kanye West.
Enjoy it? There’s a lot more FLU where that came from! Listen to that nonstop until we talk again next week! Bye!
