“I’ve worked with Joanna Jordan and Central Talent Booking for close to 20 years on Jimmy Kimmel Live and other various projects. There is no better one-stop shop for booking. Joanna is a force and has her finger on the pulse of the full spectrum of the talent universe and her team delivers relentlessly on accomplishing the booking mission, whatever the scenario.”
Doug Deluca Co Executive Producer, Jimmy Kimmel Live!
“We've been working with Central Talent Booking since 2014. Joanna and her team have secured us some of our biggest and best guests. No ask is too difficult, no suggestion is to trivial. They work tirelessly to make sure the our high standards are maintained and our reputation as a premiere interview outlet remains unsullied. Not to mention, they are wonderful people, kind and easy to work with. They are a trusted and valued partnership that we would be a lesser operation without.”

Celebrity Jeopardy
"I have had the pleasure of working with Joanna and the CTB team on numerous projects over the years, including under some incredibly stressful, unprecedented conditions (a pandemic, a labor strike, an incoming hurricane, etc.). Not only do they always get it done, but they're always calm, flexible, and willing to go above and beyond no matter the challenge. Beyond all of that, my favorite thing about working with CTB is that they approach everything like they are a part of the show's team. They work incredibly well with both creative and production, and I can't stress enough what true team players they are."
Bari Jean Dorman Producer, Jeopardy! Primetime

No matter how stressful the project is, they provide a secure, reliable service while consistently surpassing all expectations. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Highly recommend!"
