Marina Franklin performing as one of the stars of Comedy Central’s “The Awkward Kings of Comedy”
Premiering tonight at 12am on Comedy Central, the long-time Daily Show with Jon Stewart corespondent and comedian John Oliver (who has been known to occasionally hang out in the lobby at the Comic Strip) hand-selected his favorite stand-up talents to be featured on this high-profile weekly showcase. Reminiscent of the Rodney Dangerfield/HBO Young Comedian Specials of old, these shows are one of the few current opportunities for a rising comedic talent to get national (and worldwide) exposure. To make the shows roster is a highly coveted achievement. Congratulations Marina!
Marina will be leaving next week to headline the Melbourne Comedy Festival. She has previously performed on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, The Awkward Kings of Comedy, NBC’s Last Comic Standing and was a coorespondant on The Jay Leno Show.
