AGI Entertainment Media & Management Enters Into Partnership with PunchUp Live

(EZ Newswire)

NEW YORK, NY -- AGI Entertainment Media & Management, a leading talent management and production company, has signed a partnership with PunchUp Live, the new innovative platform for comics and comedy fans alike. The collaboration marks a pivotal moment for PunchUp, affirming its significance and necessity in the entertainment landscape, while also setting a precedent for management companies like AGI to support their clients' success utilizing data-driven strategies. The deal will provide AGI's comedy touring clients with PunchUp's proprietary services, offering a direct pathway for them to convert media exposure into ticket sales.

PunchUp Live, co-founded by former Meta executive Danny Frenkel and Alex Dajani, is a trailblazer in connecting comedians directly with their fan base and providing critical analytics on what drives ticket sales. Recognizing the misaligned incentives of current social media platforms and other distribution channels to relinquish data on their fans, Frenkel and Dajani created PunchUp Live, empowering comedians to manage their careers autonomously. This initiative is reshaping the landscape of comedy in the digital era by giving comedians control over their content and audience data. Furthermore, the platform provides easy consumer navigation to watch content, purchase tickets, and buy their favorite comedian’s merchandise.   

Under this exclusive agreement, AGI Entertainment Media & Management’s comedy touring clients will gain access to a suite of services tailored to maximize their reach and impact:

  • Proprietary Technological Analysis: Leveraging cutting-edge technology to analyze the sources of ticket sales, providing valuable insights to optimize marketing strategies.
  • Paid Media Support: Amplifying clients' visibility through targeted Facebook/Instagram ads and location-specific email campaigns.
  • Content Editing and Posting: Streamlining content creation and dissemination, ensuring maximum engagement across digital platforms.
  • Fan Data Accumulation: Facilitating the accumulation of fan data both online and in-person, empowering comedians with a deeper understanding of their audience.
  • AI-Driven Insights: Harnessing AI analysis to identify the optimal times for posting content to drive ticket sales.

"We are thrilled to embark on this partnership with PunchUp Live," remarks Kenneth Slotnick, CEO of AGI Entertainment Media & Management. "This collaboration underscores our commitment to providing our clients with innovative solutions that amplify their reach and impact in the ever-evolving entertainment landscape. We are here to support our clients and are excited about the possibilities PunchUp presents for our roster of talented artists."

In response to the partnership, Danny Frenkel, co-founder of PunchUp Live, says, "We are delighted to join forces with AGI Entertainment Media and Management.

We are thrilled AGI is taking advantage of our services to further support their clients. Together, we will continue to push boundaries and redefine the way comedians connect with their audience.
