For over twenty-five years Peggy Boyce has been bringing great speakers and talent to college campuses, theatres, and corporations, nationwide.
Before starting her own agency, Boyce was the Director of the Lecture and Arts Division at Admire Entertainment where she secured live appearances for the President of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, the Editor of Mad Magazine, filmmaker John Waters and comedians from the hit television show, Last Comic Standing.
From 2006-2009, Boyce was the Director of Community Relations at the world’s largest independently-owned ferry company, NY Waterway, where she created corporate partnerships with Radio City Music Hall, MSG Entertainment, Whole Foods and others. In 2010, she was given a “Recognition” Award by the Department of Homeland Security for her assistance in aiding in the rescue efforts of plane crash survivors on U.S. Air Flight 1549, otherwise known as “Miracle on the Hudson.”
In 1999, Boyce created the first-ever women’s stand-up comedy competition in a local YWCA. The following year she sold its sponsorship rights to Anheuser-Busch and the competition was expanded into comedy clubs, casinos and even Madison Square Garden. To date, the Ladies of Laughter series has awarded cash and comedy career opportunities to dozens of women in stand-up comedy and catapulted their careers to the next level. Past participants have included Amy Schumer, Melissa Rauch (“The Big Bang Theory”) and Tammy Pescatelli. In 2012, she created the “Funny & Fabulous Tour” with winners and finalists. It continues to tour theaters nationwide to rave reviews.
As a publicist Boyce has managed media tours for celebrities and spokespeople on behalf of some of the biggest corporations in the world including Kraft, Citibank, MasterCard, Harrah’s, Anheuser-Busch and Ciba, among others.
Peggy is a member of the National Association of Campus Activities, the Consortium of Northeast Regional Theatres, Inc. and the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.
