UTA has hired Mark Gordon as part of its plans to expand its comedy touring department.

Gordon’s primary focus will be booking clients in the college space, as well as across other major territories in the US. He will be based in UTA’s Los Angeles office until March 2019 when he permanently relocates to the New York office.

“We’ve had an exceptional year in Comedy Touring, from breaking new acts to developing established talent, and we’re excited to continue that momentum in 2019,” said Nick Nuciforo, UTA’s Head of Comedy Touring. “Mark will be a great asset to this growth, bringing his valuable experience in the college and crossover space.”

“Nick and his team have built an incredible department and a market-leading business in Comedy Touring,” said Gordon. “I’m looking forward to working with the group and building new opportunities for UTA.”

Gordon previously worked in the Comedy Touring department at Creative Artist Agency for five years where he specialized in booking colleges and creating touring opportunities for crossover talent.
