Want to know who came out of Montreal with a deal? The young ladies of Adept Entertainment, that's who, as the talent management firm started just last year by Abbey Robertson and Melody Hammer officially became a part of The Collective late today. The deal actually was in place by the time of this month's Just For Laughs Montreal festival, but hammered home, so to speak, this afternoon.
Robertson and Hammer bring with them to The Collective the following client roster of up-and-coming comedians/actors: Chris Fairbanks, Adam Hammer, Lauren Ashley Bishop, Tony Sam, Karl Hess, Dan Dominguez, Julius Callahan and Dana Moglan.
The Collective — which manages comedian/actors such as Eddie Izzard, Andy Dick, Greg Giraldo and Andy Milonakis, in addition to musicians and other performing artists — previously formed a partnership with production company Salient Media in 2006.
