Bill Maher WGA Kooky Demands: Comedian Criticizes Writers Guild for Unrealistic Expectations

Bill Maher WGA Kooky Demands : Bill Maher, host of HBO’s “Real Time,” opposes the ongoing writers’ strike by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA. He called some of the WGA’s proposals “kooky.” On the “Club Random” podcast with Jim Gaffigan, Maher expressed concern about the strike’s impact on non-writers and questioned its purpose. His comments come as the AMPTP and WGA are still far apart in negotiations. No talks have occurred since a criticized August 11 studio plan was made public.

Maher raised eyebrows with his comment on the strike’s evolving philosophy since 2007. They think you’re owed a living as a writer, but you’re not. He also said that work is part of Hollywood, stating, “This is show business. This is the league where you win or lose.

In a clip shared on social media, Maher expressed concern about the strike’s impact on non-writers. I feel for my writers. I like my writers. I write for my job. But it also has a big downside. “Others are getting hurt, too,” he said. Maher disliked the polarized opinions on the strike. He said, “You’re either for the strike like Che Guevara or with Trump. There’s no difference; just two groups. And there’s more to it.”

The WGA strike began in May, and Maher’s “Real Time” show hasn’t aired since April 28. The WGA criticized the recent studio offer after being made public on August 11. The Wrap sources say WGA and AMPTP haven’t talked since the meeting. The WGA will “remain committed to direct negotiations with the companies.”

The strike has halted Hollywood production, affecting everyone, not just writers. Opinions are divided by the strike, and Maher’s words complicate the public conversation. Maher noted that the 2007 strike significantly changed writers’ payment, particularly for digital media. But the current strike wants more, and people in the business are watching closely.
