Marina Franklin on Which NYC Comedy Club is Most Like Middle America
In this episode of the Voice's This is Stand-Up series, we shadow New York-based stand-up comic Marina Franklin between comedy clubs on the Lower East Side and in Midtown.
Because of its proximity to hotels and tourists, Franklin says the Broadway Comedy Club (318 W 53rd St) in midtown is as close as to a Middle American audience as a comic will get in New York, and she likes to try out material there.
"There was about ten years ago where I was asking the woman at the desk if I could stage time, and now I've run in here like a veteran, so that is how you stay pretty grateful," Franklin says.
Franklin just launched a new podcast called Friends Like Us that "features women of color with a very different views of hot topics."
