Marina Franklin to be part of new “Jay Leno Show”

On September 14th, Jay Leno is going to revolutionize the late night television scene when he begins hosting his new 10 p.m. talk show on NBC.  But he won’t be doing it alone.

Yesterday, Leno announced his supporting cast of correspondents, which included Comic Strip Live! favorite, Marina Franklin.


A stage veteran, Marina is an oft-requested crowd favorite and a current nightly regular at the Comic Strip. Marina will be able to add an irreplaceable sense of grace and wit to the new prime time program and will undoubtedly become one of the most popular new elements of young show.

Previously seen on Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show as well as NBC’s Last Comic Standing and her own Comedy Central Premium Blend special, Franklin is one of the top stand-up comedians in New York City.

Everyone at the Comic Strip Live! sends Marina their absolute best wishes on her exciting new endeavor.
