LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) APA has added two new agents to its Comedy department.
Megan McWaters and Katie Edwards join a department that includes clients Haddish, Billy Gardell, Dulcé Sloan, Eddie Izzard, Kathy Griffin, Leslie Jones, Lewis Black, Paula Poundstone, and Ronny Chieng.
“We’re very pleased to have Megan and Katie join our comedy team,” APA co-heads of Comedy Jackie Knobbe and Max Burgos said in a statement. “Their talent and creativity will be a great asset to our growing roster as we continue to expand our footprint in the evolving comedy landscape.”
A native of Maryland, McWaters graduated from Fordham University in the Bronx where she majored in Communications and Media Studies. Two days after graduation, she joined APA as executive assistant to Knobbe before relocating in 2018 to join the agency’s comedy department in Los Angeles.
New York native Edwards, who graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in TV and Radio Production, began her career in the NBC Page Program before joining The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon where she spent the next four years working in various capacities in their production and talent departments.
Edwards joined APA in 2018, working as an agent in both the comedy and talent department in the agency’s New York office.
