Another incredible addition to the OWN IT! Literary, Film & TV Agency – Quincy the Award-winning Comedian.

Quincy the Comedian also known as the Cockney Prince, is the latest addition to the OWN IT! Collective. A regular on the British stand up circuit since 2005, Quincy has performed all over the world and has supported the likes of an early Kevin Heart, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and other top comics from the USA.

Having also set up Quincy’s Comedy Lounge, this has enabled him to showcase up and coming comedians from the mainstream and the black comedy scene and continues to be a regular sell-out. Quincy has also combined the art of stand up, with addressing topical issues, in his successful breakfast show on Supreme FM, which came to an end in 2014.

Quincy will be represented by Crystal Mahey-Morgan who commented:

“Quincy has been a force within comedy for a number of years and his witty observations and creative approach means he is truly able to spark important conversations around fatherhood, masculinity, mental health and more. His talent is not limited to the stage so we’re very excited to be developing his material with him across books and screen too.

Quincy commented:

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be joining OWN IT! –  2020 can’t come quick enough for me.”

Jermain Jackman, political activist and winner of The Voice 2014, signs with OWN IT! Literary, Film and TV Agency.

Born and raised in Hackney, Jackman was tagged as the ‘Singing Politician’ by Sir Tom Jones and referred to as Britain’s first singing Black Prime Minister by leading tabloids.

Jermain is now actively using his voice to make political interventions which seek to create a fairer future for the children and young people in Hackney and beyond. This includes Jermain’s most recent, passionate plea to Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, drawing attention to the fact that in the past, stop and search too often labelled young people of colour as criminals, and urging police to step up policies.

Through his work as the Chair of the Young Futures Commission and advising capacity with the National Citizens Service, Jermain is raising awareness of how the youth of London are feeling disenfranchised and left without opportunities.

Jermain will be represented by Crystal Mahey-Morgan who commented:

“Jermain is an exciting and necessary voice committed to doing all that he can to make sure that future generations are not left voiceless. He is a super talented singer with a unique career path and has many exciting ideas in development. We feel hugely lucky to be working with Jermain and welcoming him to the OWN IT! collective”

Jermain Jackman

Jermain Jackman, 24, born and raised in Hackney, East London, combines his musical talent with pursuing his role as a political activist. Jackman first caught the nation’s attention after winning BBC talent show The Voice in 2014.

Jermain is now actively using his voice to make political interventions which seek to create a fairer future for the children and young people in Hackney and beyond.

Through his work as the Chair of the Young Futures Commission and advising capacity with the National Citizens Service, Jermain is raising awareness of how the youth of London are feeling disenfranchised and left without opportunities. Too often, young people’s voices are ignored. Jermain’s work focuses on enacting change, doing so by going into youth clubs, schools and estates, not simply to talk to young people, but, crucially, to listen to them.

Jermain’s approach is finding out what the issues are in the lives of young people, as the first step towards finding and delivering solutions. As someone who has come far at a young age himself, Jermain is a strong believer in the power of change: “I have always wanted to change the world…No dream is too big and no role is too far.”

Jermain has recently been accepted into SOAS University to complete his Politics degree and is determined to use his voice as a tool for social change, named in the list of Top 10 Black Students in the country by Rare Rising Stars.
