Manuela Horn, also known as the Austrian Amazon, is a yodeling, dancing, acting comedic force of nature. After small roles in independent movies and her own German children’s TV show, she turned her 6' 2" height into an asset as a host for corporate events and galas across the globe. Not to mention, Manuela stands 6' 7" while in her heels!
She is most recognized for her 2009 performance on America's Got Talent. Her nearly seven-foot-tall yodeling dominatrix character made it to the semifinals of that competition.
Imported from Berlin’s Pomp Duck & Circumstance to America in 2002, Manuela has been a central cast member with Teatro Zinzanni ever since. There she has performed and developed a wide variety of comedic characters and larger-than-life singing acts.
Besides performing worldwide in the Dinner Cirque Cabaret world, Manuela is the Queen of Oktoberfest. With the motto “It’s always Oktoberfest somewhere,” Manuela emcees and headlines the biggest Oktoberfests across America.

Seattle Magazin, Nov 2017
named "Yodeling Superstar"
"Some call her the Austrian Amazon; some know her as the Queen of Oktoberfest. Whatever the nickname, one thing remains true – Manuela Horn is an acting, dancing, yodeling, and comedic force of nature."
Corporate, holiday, private, or any kind of special event, I am always ready to present & represent you or your product with color & professionalism. I love crafting events with an energetic narrative. Lately producers have been hiring me to work Oktoberfest crowds, performing songs or holding yodeling contests between the musical acts. Working as a product spokesperson & MC’ing massive sporting events is where I got my start in show business & I live to seduce large crowds.

Giver her lemons and she makes a lemon drop. As a SAG member, Manuela is always ready for an exciting script.
