"Thank you so much for the wonderful and hilariously funny performance you gave at this year’s Stater Bros. Markets Annual Service Award Banquet. From the time you stepped on stage to the end of your performance, you had the entire crowd laughing constantly.

It was the perfect ending to a wonderful evening for everyone in attendance.” George A. Frahm, Executive Vice President / Stater Bros. Markets
"I can’t begin to explain how amazing Debi Guttierez is, or how much more successful our benefit show, Funny 4 a Reason, was because of her. Debi is a consummate professional whose material is timely, relevant and hilarious. Her energy and enthusiasm are nothing short of infectious. She is an engaging storyteller, drawing the audience in and refusing to let them go as she sets up the laughs; one after another. Most importantly, Debi’s jokes hit home for audiences because she tells the truth. She tackles the issues of relationships, marriage and parenting with the intense fervor and fierceness of someone who has lived to tell the tale.
As Executive Director of the Children’s Foundation of America, I can attest to the fact that in more than a decade of producing this charity event, I have not heard the kind of praise for a headliner, as I am still hearing for Debi. Our audience LOVED her! I, personally, laughed till I cried, and went home with a newfound appreciation for the power of laughter, the power of comedy and the power of the truth." Cher Ofstedahl, Executive Director, Children’s Foundation of America

“Debi Gutierrez was the headlining performer for The Wellness Community’s major fundraiser, Girls Night Out. Our fundraiser specifically funds our breast cancer groups with the support of 600 women over the course of three nights- I bet you could only imagine how well received Debi would be in that arena. She is as extraordinarily funny as she is compassionate about cancer. We consider ourselves blessed she would spend her valuable time helping our cancer patients find the lighter side of life.” Judith K. Opdahl, Executive Director,CEO / The Wellness Community

She was just what we needed.” Lynn Goldberg, Chair / Manhattan Beach Woman In Business

Your work as the master of ceremonies, combined with your stand up show, created a pleasant, upbeat atmosphere for the whole event.

Mira Halttunen, Chairman of the Board / Halton Group Ltd
“You were absolutely amazing and a sensational hit at our Young Women’s Evening! The students did not stop laughing the entire performance. We were so lucky to have you. Here is one of many responses I received about your show. “Debi had such a fresh take on the stereotypes of parenthood. While she had us all rolling on the floor with laughter, I still found myself saying ‘That’s so true!’ She was honestly hilarious and she could relate to all of us college students through her sharp wit and cutting edge humor.”
Thanks again and we hope to see you back next year! Marlene Simon, M.A., Director of Career Services & Internships / Mount St. Mary’s College
