United Talent Agency has expanded its comedy touring department with the recent hire of Mark Gordon. He will be based in UTA's Los Angeles office until March, when he will relocate to the New York office.

Gordon will focus on booking clients in the college space, as well as other major territories in the U.S. He previously worked for five years at CAA in its comedy touring department, where he specialized in booking colleges and creating touring opportunities for crossover talent.

"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," Nick Nuciforo, UTA’s head of comedy touring, said Monday in a statement. "Mark will be a great asset to this growth, bringing his valuable experience in the college and crossover space."

Added Gordon: "Nick and his team have built an incredible department and a market-leading business in comedy touring. I’m looking forward to working with the group and building new opportunities for UTA."
