Marcella was deemed an “LA Comedian to Watch in 2017” by Time Out Magazine while maintaining her reign as a fan favorite and six-time winner on Comedy Central’s @midnight. She also wrote for the Netflix series “Bill Nye Saves The World” and was a writer on the first season of the James Corden-produced show, Drop The Mic on TBS. Additionally, Marcella has appeared on TruTv’s Comedy Knock Out, Viceland’s Flophouse, NBC’s Last Call with Carson Daly and Fox’s The Real.
