Marina Franklin

New-York based Marina Franklin is emerging as one of the hottest comedians in the comedy scene today, with such notable appearances as, Wanda Syke's Herlarious, Showtime's Women Who Kill, Craig Ferguson's Late Late Show, The Jay Leno Show, Chappelle’s Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season II, and Showtime at The Apollo.
She is a favorite in Comedy Festivals across the world, like Melbourne Comedy Festival, Scotland's Glasgow Comedy Festival, BBC'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. Franklin’s career in entertainment wasn’t always in stand-up comedy; originally from Chicago, she made her acting debut at the Illinois Rep Theatre. She then quickly realized her love for acting and went on to pursue a MFA in acting at Syracuse University. Franklin is viciously likeable, if there is such a thing.

Syvia is indie electropop/rock infused with the delicate echoes of Scandinavian electronica, the intensity of American indie rock, and the soul of blues music. The sound evokes a world beyond this one--the Northern lights meeting the steely skyscrapers of New York City. Syvia is singer/songwriter Ruthy Mirsky + Sheldon Chow (bass), Frank Banisi (guitar), and Richard Moyle (drums).
It's time to feel and rock out.
