Peacock cops Koplitz in deal

Comedian to host four episodes of 'Later'

Comedian Lynne Koplitz has signed a talent-holding deal with NBC in the low-six figures.

Koplitz will host four episodes of the NBC latenight strip “Later” beginning Monday.

Koplitz was first brought to the network by Marc Hirschfeld, exec VP of casting, who discovered her when Koplitz was testing for “Saturday Night Live” at Stand Up NY. She also performed at Just for Laughs’ Montreal Comedy Festival in July.

“Later” producer Neal Kendall recruited her for the latenight gig.

The comedian is repped by Cary Hoffman Management, Jared Levine of Nelson, Guggenheim, Felker & Levine and Jim Hess at Paradigm.
