Bill Maher Fires CAA After Oscar Party Snub (Exclusive)

March 16, 2024

Bill Maher has fired CAA. Sources say the host of HBO’s Real Time fired CAA, his reps for more than two decades, on Monday after he was not invited to CEO Bryan Lourd’s private Oscar party at his home on Saturday night. (Maher was seen Friday night at WME’s Oscar party at Hearst Estate in Beverly Hills.) Maher had been repped at CAA by Steven Lafferty, who also serves as the agency’s head of television. News of Maher ditching CAA comes after the agency recently negotiated a two-year extension for Real Time, which takes the weekly talk show through its 24th season in 2026.
