Cohen oversaw the talent department at “SNL” for 19 years, landing hosts, casting the skein and producing specials for the Peacock.

In her new role, Cohen will boost ICM Partners’ comedy representation in the television, feature film and digital realms. “Her expertise will be invaluable in bolstering our presence in comedy, from motion pictures to television to the digital space,” the ICM partners said in a statement.
