About Marti Cate 

Marti Cate is a professional entertainer, mime, dancer, and actress who has performed at thousands of special events - from street festivals in Europe, to stage shows in Asia, to corporate extravaganzas throughout the US …even on the wing of a Concorde jet (not during flight!). She also speaks excellent French, German, and Spanish.

Holding a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary Performing Arts, she first fell in love with performing at the age of four, when she danced in The Nutcracker.

Entertainment highlights include performing on television and stage in Taiwan and Japan, in addition to several solo tours in Europe. One favorite moment was being interviewed as "Charlie Chaplin" on French television to announce a French mime festival in which she participated. In additional, her credits include appearances in film, TV and print. 

As owner of Unexpected Company, Marti also books many other talented artists. With over 25 years of experience, she has entertained and coordinated talent for thousands of corporate, retail, community, and private events.
