Paquin Artists Agency Expands with Comedy Division and Vancouver Office


Toronto, ON – November 2, 2016 – Paquin Artists Agency (PAA) is proud to announce the expansion of its roster, welcoming critically-acclaimed comics and award-winning radio program hosts to the new comedy division.  The roster will be led by agent, Aaron Schubert, who returns to the Paquin Artists Agency fold 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.

“I’m happy to be back and starting this new division. I believe we are on the cusp of great growth and opportunity, forging new directions for both PAA and me personally,” reveals Schubert.   Since quietly opening the Agency’s third office in Vancouver in late 2015, he has signed: The Debaters Live, Because News, This Is That, Steve Patterson, and Jonathan Goldstein.

“Paquin has a long history working with comedians; early in my career I toured such luminaries as Jim Carry, Stephen Wright and Rodney Dangerfield,” remarks Gilles Paquin, CEO of Paquin Entertainment Group. “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.”

Comedy is a welcomed addition to the Company’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.
