You can take the girl out of Oz, but you can’t take the Aussie out of the girl. Maria’s keen observations and friendly Aussie style make her a favorite with audiences and give her global comedic appeal. Mix in growing up humble in a shack with a kangaroo and then marrying a New Yorker 30 years her senior, and you’ve got all the fodder for funny. San Diego's Point Loma Life Magazine’s 5 page cover article called her animated style ‘fun to watch and simply hilarious’. Her numerous TV appearances include KUSI’s Good Morning San Diego, UTTV’s Comic Strip and The Dr Phil Show. Internationally she’s performed in Australia; England at the Henley Fringe Festival, and was the first Aussie female to perform in India at Mumbai’s Laugh Factory. Maria’s outgoing Aussie ‘take on life’ has been a welcome addition to many US and International Festivals, as well as colleges, corporate venues and clubs including South Point Casino Las Vegas, Edgewater Casino Laughlin, The Comedy Stores and the Hollywood and Irvine Improvs. Maria is also an award winning Radio & TV journalist, news reader; and voice over specialist. With more than 20 years of MC experience at fundraisers, comedy shows, music fests and state fairs, and 10 years in full time morning radio, she’s not only professional but on the spot funny.
