Converge, a talent management firm with investment by comedian JB Smoove, is the latest acquisition by Zealot Media, a multimedia firm headed by Danny Zappin. Converge, which focuses primarily on comedy, joins the acquisitions of Premier Sports & Entertainment and AudioMicro. So now they’ve got comedy, sports and music — Zealot sounds like they’ve got a hell of a Saturday night package lined up.
JB Smoove is a funny dude, so we’re pretty pleased with this pickup (NMR is owned by Zealot as well, btw). In the spirit of the moment, we’ve decided that we need to track down four of JB’s best bits on YouTube. You should join us and check ‘em out too.
