Randi Siegel is a producer, consultant and talent manager specializing in comedy and social media strategy. She currently represents Golden Globe and Grammy nominated Singer/Songwriter, Frank Stallone and Dave Thomas, founder of Bow Hunter Planet. Siegel started as the receptionist for famed talent manager Bernie Brillstein where she made her way up the ranks working closely with the career development of clients such as Adam Sandler, Bob Saget, Rob Schneider and Andy Dick as well as new comedic talent. After 5 years, Siegel formed her own management company and found tremendous success with many clients but most notably Jimmy Fallon, who went from obscurity to SNL, film, records and books. After nearly 10 years in talent management, she moved on and spent the last decade as the EVP of Talent & Development at National Lampoon, the Head of Special Projects and Marketing Initiatives for Comic Relief (2006 / HBO), the Executive in Charge of Alternative Comedy Programming at The Fred Silverman Company, and just prior to now returning to management, served as the Director of Comedy Relations & Content at Myspace. Siegel is an adjunct professor for Boston University (BU in LA), where her Talent Representation and Contracts class was ranked #6 on The Daily Beast’s Hottest College Courses in the Country (2011). She is a guest lecturer and panelist for many areas of the business and her seminars include “The Business of Comedy,” “The Art of the Pitch,” and “Your Sense of Humor: Using Comedy & Humor at Work.” Siegel was the script supervisor for 3 comedy albums for Pauly Shore and Adam Sandler and she co-created and supervised production of Jimmy Fallon’s humor book “I Hate This Place” (co-written w/Gloria Fallon, TV Books). Siegel, herself, is not very funny.
