About Us

Olivia Wingate
SVP, Scripted Development
Olivia is originally from London but has been based in New York for nearly 20 years. After earning her Masters from NYU, she worked in theater – both on and off-broadway – and initially focused on bringing Contemporary Drama to the UK. She then segued into the comedy world by importing the best of American stand-up across the pond, as well (comics she brought to London include David Cross, Patton Oswalt and Louis CK). Soon thereafter she started her own management company, which she ran for 10 years and then merged with the management firm Avalon. Her clients included Marc Maron, Reggie Watts, John Hodgman, Wyatt Cenac, and Eugene Mirman. She also served as executive producer on numerous projects, including Maron on IFC and multiple comedy specials.

Olivia is now responsible for developing scripted projects at Left/Right. She is excited to be mired in development instead of mired in management, and to work with all the awesome talent that she has come to know over her two decades working in comedy. She lives in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn with her husband Matt, daughter Talia, and crazy cat Omar. She’s hoping to add a dog to the mix one day soon.
