Berkowitz

Partner / Agent, Comedy Touring

As the first agent to book sports arenas for stand-up tours, Berkowitz became partner at William Morris Endeavor two years ago. Not only has he maintained the same A-list batch of clients over numerous firms (many represented at other agencies for acting and writing but exclusive to Berkowitz and WME out on the road), he’s expanded to booking and mounting eventized specials, scoring four Emmy nominations for HBO and Netflix airings.

And now Netflix has invested tens of millions in variety comedy programming courtesy of Berkowitz, headlined by the likes of Schumer, Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, Chelsea Peretti and Bill Burr.
