Ana Elisa Martínez (18 March 1975, Buenos Aires, Argentina) better known as Anita Martínez is an actress, comedian, dancer, and Argentine television host.

For her comedy work she has won two Martín Fierro Awards due to her work in en Noche de Ronda, Showmatch, and Animales Sueltos, respectively. She also has received a Vos Award for her work in theater.


She started studying classical dance. Later, she decided to study musical theater. She got her first job on television after auditioning and being selected for the famous sports chain TyC Sports.

After going through several jobs, a producer convinced her to study acting:

«I started in social club and sports, following the legendary Mar de Fondo... I never wanted to be an actress, but I liked it and everything came from there: Telefe, Videomatch, Los Felipe, Vale la Pena!, Franco Buenaventura. I failed a lot, but it helped me to realize what I did not have to do... and kept doing it. Las chicas de la calle, la Casa de América, and others that are best not to remember.»

— Anita Martínez in an interview
