E! Execs Are Allegedly Sabotaging a Benefit Show for Striking ‘Fashion Police’ Writers
Last month, the writers of the E! network’s comedy/variety show Fashion Police went on strike to fight for fair wages and a WGA contract. Said writers, who have not been making an income since going on strike in mid-April, scheduled a benefit show at LA’s Laugh Factory to help earn them some money to pay bills in the meantime, but an anonymous writer for the show tells Perez Hilton that E!’s Vice President John Najarian bought out all the tickets to the event, causing it to quickly sell out in order to sabotage the benefit. As The Comedy Bureau points out, the Laugh Factory, which seats 350-400, rarely sells out days ahead of time, no matter who is performing there. The Fashion Police benefit is still scheduled for tonight, so it should be pretty interesting to see what happens there.
