Canadian comedy director and former mullet wearer Devon Ferguson has joined Birth for commercial representation.
The Toronto-born redhead cut his teeth at the Upright Citizens Brigade School of Improv and the Groundlings, which makes him one of the most amusing and agile directors on the circuit.
Ferguson's pithy style is evident in his work for recruitment website Monster. Seventeen seconds is enough for some razor-sharp commentary on gender discrimination, with all three performances on point.
Birth executive producer Kate Elson was quickly sold on Fergusonís potential: "Devon first came to our notice at the YDAs. He's a rare and extraordinary emerging talent and at Birth, developing talent is in our DNA. Devon has a great future ahead of him, we are both proud and thrilled to be a part of it."
So, what does Ferguson have to say about his new home? "I'm super excited to join Birth. Comedy is at the heart of everything I do and I canít wait to collaborate with a culture that has such a rich heritage of wit and creativity."
