Yusef graduated from De Montfort University in Leicester, in 2014 with a degree in Journalism. After deciding the printed media wasn’t for him, he spent a few years working at comedy clubs such as the 99 Club and Show and Tell, and TV production companies in London. In 2017 he joined YMU (formerly James Grant) as a team assistant initially before being promoted to Assistant Talent Manager working across their roster of presenters and influencers.
After a year at YMU, he moved onto Avalon in 2018 to assist the director and managers with their prestigious comedy talent and Edinburgh festival productions. After four years under his belt at Avalon, Yusef joined the PBJ team at the beginning of 2023 as Associate Agent.
Yusef is delighted to be joining PBJ working alongside Lucy Fairney across her client list and beginning to build his own list.
