Berkowitz

Partner / Agent, Comedy Touring

When the pandemic put a halt to live touring, Berkowitz had to find new income streams for the top comedy talents on his client list, many of whom had been earning a substantial portion of their income on the road. One such pivot was Emmy-nominated Food Network show “Amy Schumer Learns to Cook,” which the comedian self-shot while quarantining with her chef husband Chris Fischer. Berkowitz also signed Sarah Cooper, who became a sensation over the COVID lockdown with her Donald Trump lip-synch videos. She parlayed that into a deal for her Netflix special, “Everything’s Fine,” while helping funnyman Mike Birbiglia launch his podcast, “Working It Out.” Other clients include Kevin Hart, Bill Burr, John Mulaney, Nick Kroll, Aziz Ansari and Chelsea Peretti.
