Today we went to ICM partners and met with Bryan Diperstein. I am meeting one of my family friends on Friday, Justin Lader, and he is represented by two agents at ICM. He told me to say “hello” to them if I could, but I did not see them.
Bryan apparently is the youngest agent to ever work at ICM. He’s chipper and seems inexhaustible—agents work insane hours and need a passion to keep them going. I don’t think I want to be an agent, but hearing that they all need assistants has made me very excited about a career pre/parallel to writing.
After ICM we went to Bill Maher’s rehearsal and met with the head writer and the behind the scenes team.
