Popular Twitch streamer and gamer Guy ‘Dr DisRespect’ Beahm has entered a new phase in his career, after signing with major celebrity talent agency ‘CAA.’
Creative Artists Agency LLC is a Los Angeles-based talent agency with a number of influential clients, including the likes of music artist Lady Gaga, A-List actor George Clooney, retired football pro David Beckham, and even former American Vice President Joe Biden.
Dr DisRespect has signed with the agency to represent all areas of his career, in conjunction with television and film appearances, touring, partnerships, and even book publishing, in addition to his streaming success.
This isn’t the first time CAA has signed a gaming personality, either; the agency likewise added Canadian Fortnite pro Nicholas ‘Nick Eh 30’ Amyoony and YouTuber David ‘StoneMountain64’ Steinberg to their ranks a month prior to partnering with the Doc.
With CAA’s gaming department also representing game developers (such as Respawn and Obsidian), this latest signage marks yet another foray into the world of video games and esports for the agency, of which Dr DisRespect is now a part.

Although it marks a major development, Beahm’s signage shouldn’t come as a massive surprise, seeing as how the streamer boasts a whopping three million followers on Twitch and over 800,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel.
The Doc spoke out on the news in a simple Tweet on January 10, posting a link from the Hollywood Reporter’s article on the topic with the caption, “Yayayayayaya.”
