Marla Schultz is a Standup Comedian,
Keynote Speaker, Emcee and Actress
Like my friend, Sam, says on his headstone: “He who laughs, lasts.”
Standup comedy truly saved my life. Throw in a little therapy – meds if needed – but honestly, making people laugh is my jam.
When I’m performing at a comedy club, delivering a keynote speech, or emceeing an event, and somebody says to me, “I didn’t know depression & anxiety could be so funny. Thank you for making me laugh. I don’t feel so alone.”
Laughter is the ultimate people pleaser. My job is complete.
I met Marla as a fellow speaker who moved the crowd with her touching, yet hysterically narrated, story. Her performance led me to immediately hire her as the emcee of our inaugural TEDxFarmingdale event. I trusted her judgement in terms of content and she did NOT disappoint. Marla brought the perfect mix of comedy, intellect, and humanity to the host roll, and even helped up pick up the pieces during a few hiccups at the show with an impromptu comedy set to fill time. Hire this woman, now!
Marla has a way of alchemizing ideas and concepts that may have otherwise seemed separate or unrelated. She can read between the lines of your message and extract narratives that represent the core of what you’re here to say.
Marla speaks on life’s challenging experiences with grace and humor.
Marla Schultz has the unique ability to deliver a heavy topic with humor. She is remarkable in how she finds the perfect words that paints the most realistic visuals to speeches including her own. As an international speaker, fear strategist and molecular geneticist who speaks about the science of fear, Marla is genius in adding brevity to my talks.
We hired Marla to emcee our silent auction at our annual Oscar Party fundraiser. Not only did she have the crowd in stitches, she had them digging deep in their pockets and tripling our proceed expectations for the auction! Marla really knows how to work a crowd!
Marla’s powerful talk captivated me from beginning to end. She hit a wide range of emotions and had me laughing, crying and celebrating, all in eight minutes. Well done.
Marla got to the heart of my presentation, ripped it apart, and put it back together in a compelling and entertaining way. She’s great to work with, and will bring out the best in you.

It’s quite challenging entertaining 60 unique personalities but Marla managed to have everyone rolling and got a standing 0! I was getting compliments for weeks. Thank you for making our event so fun and entertaining.
