Paquin Artists Agency Touts Comedy Division, Vancouver Office
On November 2, 2016, Paquin Artists Agency (PAA) announced the expansion of their roster to include critically-acclaimed comics and award-winning radio program hosts to the agency’s new comedy division. The roster will be led by agent, Aaron Schubert, who returns to PAA after taking a few years off to enjoy success as a talent buyer at The Biltmore Cabaret, and manager to Vancouver’s Garage Rock duo, The Pack AD.
Since quietly opening the agency’s third office in Vancouver in late 2015, Schubert has signed: The Debaters Live, Because News, Canadaland, This Is That, Steve Patterson, and Jonathan Goldstein.
PAA is one of Canada’s premier entertainment companies with offices operating out of Winnipeg, Toronto and most recently Vancouver. The agency proudly represents world-class artists on a national and international level, covering a wide spectrum of art forms. Spanning from music to theatre to dance, its roster is home to over 160 artists.
Comedy is a welcome addition to PAA’s broad roster of national and international talent, such as: The Strumbellas, Randy Bachman, The Sheepdogs, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Old Crow Medicine Show, Serena Ryder, Shakey Graves, and Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
“Paquin has a long history working with comedians; early in my career I toured such luminaries as Jim Carry, Stephen Wright and Rodney Dangerfield,” says Paquin Entertainment Group CEO Gilles Paquin. “I am very pleased that Aaron has brought this genre to the company, and I am amazed at the quality of the artists he has signed in such a short time.”
PAA is a division of Paquin Entertainment Group whose portfolio holds over 25 years of global experience ranging from agency, artist management, corporate consulting and theatre/film.
