Powell’s POV: The description of ICM Partners on the company website lists: “ICM Partners is one of world’s leading talent agencies, dedicated to the representation of artists, content creators, broadcasters, authors, journalists and artisans.” The list of ICM’s talent includes Alice In Chains, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Chaka Khan, Arsenio Hall, Barry Gibb, David Spade, Cyndi Lauper, Bob Seger, Boyz II Men, Brandi, Jay Leno, Carrot Top, some guy named John Cena, and a bunch of newer acts that an old guy like me has never heard of.
