Our purpose as an agency is to respond to gaps in the entertainment industry – such as the lack of female comedy entertainers and the ongoing diversity problem in television. We hope that by working with these new creators, we can encourage the same upwards trajectory our existing clients have seen over the past year.”

    Since launching into market, Moxie has had several high-profile signings including STORROR who have increased their YouTube following from under one million to now almost six million YouTube subscribers. The group of seven have also played a crucial part in the upcoming Michael Bay for Netflix film, 6 Underground, due for release in December. Family entertainer Adam Beales has collaborated with both CBBC and the Disney Channel in 2019, including a continued partnership with Disney Channel UK. Niko Omilana has recently surpassed 1million subscribers, while sex-positive YouTubers and activists ComeCurious launched a highly successful podcast F**ks Given and has fronted a show for the BBC’s Body Positive channel.
