WME Sets Mike Berkowitz and Allysa Mahler to Lead Restructured Comedy Group

Talent agency WME is restructuring its comedy representation group to put a bigger emphasis on crossover — hustling opportunities for its funny people across touring, TV, film, publishing and endorsements.

Mike Berkowitz, an industry leader in the comedy touring space who joined WME from APA in 2018, will co-lead the new group with Allysa Mahler, the agency announced Tuesday. Talent manager Kathleen Lewis of Anonymous Content is also joining the shop, and WME’s Katie Marshall has been promoted to comedy agent.

“The comedy business today demands a 360-degree approach to servicing our clients, and we’re pleased to form this new group to bring them even more opportunities,” Berkowitz and Mahler said in a joint statement “We are excited to welcome Kathleen to the team and to promote Katie as we continue expanding and look forward to our next chapter of growth.”
