OUR STORY

Jake Hirsch launched his Entertainment Group in 2006 as one of the largest Mixed Martial Arts Management Agencies in North America representing talent in the UFC, Bellator, K-1, World Series of Fighting and The Maximum Fighting Championship. It was there Jake found his love of live events, promoting UFC after parties and seminars throughout the country.

After a chance interview with Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Clubs founder, Mark Breslin, Jake joined the Yuk Yuk’s family and launched the popular, “Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Podcast” where he hosted and interviewed world class comedians weekly. He eventually became their West Coast Talent Agent, getting to work with amazing Comedians and putting on live shows throughout Western Canada.  In 2017, Jake left Yuk Yuk’s to focus on Talent Management and to help a small group of clients with their careers.

Starting with one client, Jake soon amassed an impressive roster of Artists and expanded into touring, Video production and Producing specials. Having a small boutique agency was always the vision. Fewer clients, more attention.

The stars aligned again when Jake met John Cornett (All Things Comedy) and Rick & Tammy Bronson who mentored him in ticketing live events and the comedy club business. Jake has been fortunate enough to have worked with The World Famous Comedy Store, the Laugh Factory, Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy, The Stand, Laugh Boston, Just For Laughs and Mark Ridley’s Comedy Castle.

Jake continues to Manage, tour, promote and talent-buy for numerous shows and festivals throughout the country, providing expertise to live events, clubs and promoters. Even through the current pandemic, Jake Hirsch Entertainment Group Inc. has been an integral part of bringing live entertainment back with live performances in both music and comedy.

We are committed to bringing the most creative and prosperous opportunities to our world-class clients.
