Founded in 2015, Hannah Layton Management is home to a boutique roster of both emerging and established comedic writers and performers. Clients include Patrick Kielty, Thanyia Moore, Aurie Styla, Cally Beaton, Chris Washington, Jen Ives, Katia Kvinge, Pope Lonergan and sketch duo Shelf.
DLT is aiming to create "an internal network of talent, contacts, and ideas". It has also invested in Gag Reflex, MMB Creative, The Galton Agency, Impatient Productions, The Soho Agency, Blue Book Artist Management and Andrew Roach Talent.
The company says: "The synergy created by these investments has the potential to continue to create new opportunities for DLT, the agencies and their clients, providing a 360-degree approach to collaborating, sourcing, and developing new projects within the company."
Layton says: "I'm really excited by this partnership with DLT, which supports the next stages of growth and expansion for HLM. It is inspiring to be working alongside creative businesspeople and like-minded agencies, especially after being locked up through the pandemic!"
Donald Taffner Jr., the president of DLT Entertainment, comments: "I have known and admired Hannah when she worked at other agencies before starting up her own. Not only is she a fantastic agent, but she shares the same values as our other agencies making her a perfect fit for expansion."
