English. Maggan Hammar “The secret guest” & standupcomedian.

Maggan making dinnerspeech at corporate parties:

Are you planning a kick-off, a clientmeeting, a wedding?       

Would you consider surprising your guests/staff with an unforgettable experience to share and remember for a long time to come?                                                                      

Invite your guests to something new and unexpected!

Maggan Hammar is the guest you will never forget.                

Here is the real surprise.  

My name is Maggan Hammar. Im coming from the north of Sweden, Edsbyn. I work as a comedienne and actress. Have been seen in Startrek, Seinfeld, Benny Hill show. As living earlier in New York, Los Angeles and Paris.  My base is now in Stockholm.


After huge success I have developed my own niche. “The fake employee prank”.  Cutting edge entertainment with me pretending to be for example the new CEO at the company.

A big hit!

I join the event as a guest among others. Creating a slight confusion in the mingle before the dinner. Breaking with pleasant subtlety the social codes.

The setups can be many.

The management sometimes gives me an early quick presentation.  During the dinner I make a speech. Which is my show. While the guests start to squirm in their seats.

Eventually my speech reveals my true identity as a comedian and probably not a new employee. This is to the great relief.. and amusement of many.

Before the performance I tailor my speech for the occasion. Suitable setup is always in agreement with the client. Whoever can help with info about some guests to include in a funny surprising way.

Maggan speaks fluently english and french. Perfect for the international crowd.

Unexpected entertainment as its best!

“We are very pleased with your performance last week which was a perfect combination of confusion and discomfort which later transformed into humor. The effect of creating embarrassment (which for us Swedes is very difficult to handle) to the realization that this must have been arranged worker very well.

Personne ne la connaissait bien sûr mais elle a réussi à duper l’ensemble des personnes présentes et nous faire, les uns après les autres, tous éclater de rire. Pour ma part, mes collègues (…et moi-même) ont grâce a Maggan soudain découvert tous mes secrets (véritables et imaginaires), absolument tous les tabous sociaux ont été balayés par son incroyable humour et talent de comédienne.
