Jamie Curry, the teen comedian whose “Jamie’s World” page has nearly 10 million fans on Facebook, has signed with WME for representation.
Curry rose to popularity with her buoyant vlogs and skits on YouTube and Facebook about teen life with a style that has resonated worldwide. Among her most popular videos are “My Sister is SO Annoying!” and “My First Ball.”
Last year, Curry’s first book, “They Let Me Write A Book!”, was published by HarperCollins, in which she recounts “my cowboy hat years, the year I dug a big hole, and the time I pulled down my pants at a badminton game.” She also toured throughout New Zealand and Australia, and was nominated for a 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award in the “favorite internet sensation” category for Australia/New Zealand.

WME will rep her across all digital platforms and in film, TV, books and touring. Curry will continue to repped by Imogen Johnson and Julie Cooper at New Zealand’s Johnson & Laird Management and Danny Miller at Hirsch Wallerstein.
Her prominence on Facebook, where she’s one of the most popular comedic personalities, underscores how the social giant has become a platform for individual creators to reach a large audience. Earlier this year, CAA signed Matt Bellassai, a former BuzzFeed employee who hosted alcohol-fueled comedy series “Whine About It” on Facebook.
