Maria is an Australian with global comedic appeal. Growing up with Dutch immigrant parents, kangaroos and an outhouse, her humble beginnings are the fodder for funny. Her animated style and international characters make her fun to watch and simply ´hilarious´.

In England, the ´Funny Aussie Chick´ performed in her own one-woman comedy show at the UK´s top 3 Fringe Event; Henley Fringe July 2013.
