Comedienne Marina Franklin (above) will bring her renowned stand-up routine to the Dunn Center for the Performing Arts at the Keystone Theatre on Friday, Jan. 27, 2017 at 7:30 pm. The performance is sponsored by Henry Dunn, Inc.

Tickets are $22 for adults, $20 for seniors and $10 for students. All tickets are $25 at the door. Tickets are available in advance at www.bcrac.org or by calling 570-268-2787.

New-York based Marina Franklin is emerging as one of the hottest comedians in the comedy scene today, with such notable appearances as a correspondent on The Jay Leno Show, Craig Ferguson’s Late Late Show, Awkward Comedy Show, Chapelle’s Show, Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, NBC’s Last Comic Standing Season II, VH1’s Black to the Future, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, MSNBC, Showtime at The Apollo, John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show and Showtime’s Women Who Kill.

Franklin was also one of a handful of comics selected by Wanda Sykes and The OWN Network for Oprah’s Herlarious special and recently appeared on Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer.

Franklin 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. She recently acted in the Jim Gaffigan pilot for CBS.  Franklin is viciously likeable, if there is such a thing.

Managing Editor of EndlessMtnLifestyles.com, dedicated to providing interesting information about life in the Endless Mountains region of northern Pennsylvania. The website - a meager investment with no immediate return - is meant to be community-based and to reflect the varied tastes of its readers. Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening. I am also a self-employed media consultant and freelance writer/editor, providing professional services for businesses, municipalities, and organizations for which retaining a full time staff writer is not a viable option.
