To work together with immensely talented artists to create extraordinary film, television, live performance, and internet content that entertains, inspires, and changes the world.

Barry Katz was born in Longmeadow, Massachusetts and graduated from Boston University with a degree specializing in working with the disabled. Katz started his "alternative" career as a stand-up comic in Beantown, and it was there that he performed with such established artists as Denis Leary, Bob Goldthwait, and Steven Wright; while also managing various comedy clubs in the New England area for over a decade. In the early 90’s, he decided to quit performing and move to New York City, opening up the Boston Comedy Club in Greenwich Village, while simultaneously starting his own management company that immediately landed 4 clients on Saturday Night Live. This led him to expand his operation to LA where he brokered an unprecedented 75 television development deals.

After 15 successful years at the helm of his own company, Katz merged his business with New Wave Entertainment and over the next 8 years, helped build it into a respected full service talent management, digital distribution, and production company with over 25 managers, producers, and development executives. Universally known for launching the careers of Dave Chappelle, Jay Mohr, Dane Cook, Anthony Clark, Tracy Morgan, Nick DiPaolo, and Whitney Cummings; Katz left New Wave in 2011 to go back to running his own company again.

He has produced several films including Employee of the Month, Good Luck Chuck, and My Best Friend's Girl. Additionally, he has created three television shows (ABC's The Next Best Thing, NESN'S Comedy All-Stars, and the FOX sketch pilot Naked But Funny), and has executive produced over 30 different TV specials, documentaries, reality programs, and scripted shows including NBC’s Whitney, Fox's Action, HBO's Tourgasm, History Channel's Houdini: Unlocking the Mystery, TBS's Frank TV, and 7 seasons of the Emmy nominated NBC series Last Comic Standing.
