Best Corporate Event Ever
We had a wonderful experience with Maritess. She is very responsive and helpful during the booking process. We had to move our event date due to impelent work priorities, and she was accommodating with our demands. The day of the show she arrived ahead of time to make sure everything was correctly set up and meet in advance the team. The show was spectacular and we had an extraordinary participation from everybody. She was able to engage a crowd of engineers for a whole hour with tricks and mentalism activities that left everybody astonished. It was an excellent show! Thank you Maritess!!

EXCELLENT Entertainment for Corporate Gig
Maritess is a must for any corporate gig! She engaged small groups of attendees and had each group laughing and wondering how she did her slight-of-hand tricks and her mind reading. She is a MUST!

Students LOVED her!!
Maritess is the quintessential talented, exciting, brilliant professional entertainer! She balances the tricky business of hypnotism with aplomb and expertise. I highly recommend her for your next event. We will definitely bring her back to entertain students again as soon as possible. Her show was a HUGE hit while being respectful, funny, and providing impressive artistry. The participants and audience members all enjoyed her show greatly.

Great Event!
I am the current President of the South Sound chapter of the National Association of Women in Construction. We hired Maritess to perform her hypnotist show at our Pacific Northwest Regional Forum. Maritess did not disappoint! She was very professional to work with, and her show was wonderful. It was amazing to watch and at the same time we were all in tears from laughing! We were truly entertained. Her abilities coupled with her wonderful personality made her a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Maritess for any corporate event!

Having gone to about 10 different shows that Maritess has put on, I feel qualified to say that Maritess is a phenomenal talent and a pleasure to know. Her magic not only amazes, it entertains in a witty and intriguing manner that leaves her audience eager for more. From corporate events to shows, Maritess will put more than a little magic into your day!

Maritess is more than just a typical illusionist - she is an energetic entertainer and a passionate performer. The real magic is in her wonderful personality and ability to connect with audiences.

Pace loves Maritess Zurbano Comedian Hypnotist
In planning a large party it is always challenging to find the headliner entertainment to make everyone enjoy themselves. Not this year!! Maritess entertained the entire room. She had so many who wanted to participate and she handled it marvelously. The feedback is still coming in on how this was the BEST Christmas party ever. Pace knows it is all because of the laughter and joy we got from her amazing performance. Being an event planner for years I would whole heartily recommend Maritess for any event you have coming up. She ROCKED our Christmas party. Thank you so very much for having her as our option for professional and fun entertainment.

A Huge Success thanks to Maritess
From start to finish working with Maritess was fantastic experience. Her professionalism and attention to detail was very much appreciated. My husband's 50th Birthday party was a huge success thanks to Maritess. Her show was amazing, fun and so entertaining that we still talk about it today. Will definitely hire her for future parties and highly recommend her for both private and corporate events.

Personalized, Fun, & Optimistic Readings
Maritess Zurbano performed tarot card readings during our school's 8th grade graduation party sponsored by the PTSA which I co-chaired. She instinctively knew how to adjust her readings for this age group and keep them optimistic while still being personalized for each student. The students really engaged with her, and I received great feedback. Her table was very popular, yet she was skilled at keeping the line moving while still making each student feel like they had their dedicated time with her. Maritess was very professional, on time, fun, and easy to work with. I highly recommend her!
