Andrew Roane Dick (born Andrew Thomlinson; December 21, 1965) is an American actor and comedian.[2][3] As a stand-up comedian Dick has had a long career, making appearances all across America, as well as released several comedy albums, and as an actor has appeared in numerous television and film roles. Dick's first regular television role was on the short lived The Ben Stiller Show on Fox. In the mid-1990s, he was a regular actor on NBC's NewsRadio and was a supporting character on Less than Perfect. He also had two short lived television series on MTV. The first in 2001 was a sketch comedy series called The Andy Dick Show, and in 2004, the reality television series The Assistant. He also is noted for his behavior on a number of Comedy Central Roasts, stand up comedy performances, and late night talk show appearances.

He is also known for his eccentric behavior, struggles with drug addiction, and numerous sexual misconduct allegations and arrests.[4][5] Dick has said that he has long struggled with drug and alcohol use disorders for years and by 2016 said that he had entered into rehab programs 20 times in an effort to become sober.[6] In 2022, after a conviction for a 2018 offense, he was required to register as a sex offender.[7]

Early life and education

Dick was born on December 21, 1965, in Charleston, South Carolina, as Andrew Thomlinson. He was adopted at birth by Allen and Sue Dick, and named Andrew Roane Dick. He was brought up Presbyterian.[8] His father was in the Navy.[9]

As a child, he spent time living with his family in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, and Yugoslavia before moving to Chicago in 1979.[1] He attended George Walton Comprehensive High School in Cobb County, Georgia. Dick appeared in numerous theater productions during his high school years. He was elected homecoming king his senior year in 1983.[10] He graduated from Joliet West High School in Joliet, Illinois in 1984.

While in high school, he tended to use his surname as a joke; and one day, he dressed in a homemade superhero costume and presented himself at school as "Super Dick".[11] Dick has been a friend of actor Anthony Rapp since childhood.[12]

After high school, Dick joined Chicago's Second City, attended Illinois Wesleyan University for a semester before attending Columbia College Chicago, where he performed most of his university studies,[13][9] and took improv comedy classes at iO Theater.

Dick started his TV comedy career as a cast member on the sketch comedy program The Ben Stiller Show, which aired on the Fox Network from September 1992 to January 1993. In 1993, on the third night of David Letterman's new CBS show, Dick appeared as "Donnie the CBS Page Who Likes to Suck Up", during which he gave a watch to Letterman. The host then handed him a pencil, prompting Dick to cry and then walk backstage to much applause.

In 1994, Dick played the part of Pepé the stylist in the episode "Maggie the Model" on The Nanny. He also starred as Zachary Smart, the son of Maxwell Smart and Agent 99, in the Get Smart Fox television remake (a role he reportedly tried to escape to go into work with NewsRadio).[14] In 2001, Dick starred along with Kieran Culkin on the short lived NBC summer television series Go Fish.

Dick has been a series regular on several sitcoms for their entire duration, including NewsRadio on NBC (1995–1999), portraying accident-prone reporter Matthew Brock, and on the ABC sitcom Less than Perfect as Owen Kronsky.

In 2001, he, along with colleagues and producers, developed a show on MTV called The Andy Dick Show. The series ended in 2003 after three seasons. In 2004, he starred in a satirical reality television show, also on MTV, called The Assistant.

Personal life

Family

In a 2006 interview with The Washington Post, he said he is bisexual.[29]

Drug and alcohol use disorders

Dick states that he has struggled with drug and alcohol use disorders over the years and has entered into rehab programs 20 times in an effort to become sober.[6]

Legal issues and controversies

Arrests and legal actions

Dick has been arrested, tried and convicted of multiple crimes.

On May 15, 1999, Dick drove his car into a utility pole in Hollywood. He was charged with the possession of cocaine, cannabis, and drug paraphernalia, driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs, and hit-and-run driving.[30] He later pled guilty to felony cocaine possession, and misdemeanor cannabis possession and possession of a "smoking device". After Dick completed an 18-month drug diversion program, the charges were dismissed.[31]

On December 4, 2004, Dick was arrested for indecent exposure after he exposed his buttocks at a local McDonald's.[32]

On July 16, 2008, Dick was arrested in Murrieta, California, on suspicion of drug possession and sexual battery. He exposed the breasts of a 17-year-old girl when he allegedly grabbed and pulled down her tank top and brassiere. During a search of his person, police reported finding a small quantity of cannabis and one alprazolam (Xanax) tablet for which Dick did not have a prescription.[33][34] He was released from jail after posting $5,000 bail. Dick eventually plead guilty to misdemeanor battery and marijuana possession. He was sentenced to three years probation, around $700 in fines, and was ordered to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet for one year.[35]

On January 23, 2010, Dick was arrested at about 4:00 a.m. at a bar in Huntington, West Virginia, on charges of sexual abuse after reportedly groping a bartender and a patron.[36][37] He was released from jail after pleading not guilty and posting $60,000 bail.[38][39] On June 29, 2011, Dick was formally indicted by a Cabell County Grand Jury for two counts of first degree sexual abuse. Dick plead not guilty during a formal arraignment in Cabell County Circuit Court in Huntington on July 29, 2011. After receiving the not guilty plea, Judge Paul Ferrell set a trial date of January 17, 2012.[40] After several delays, on May 21, 2012, Dick was given a six-month pre-trial diversion. An assistant prosecutor said that the agreement stated that if Dick would stay out of legal trouble for six months, the criminal charges would be dismissed.[41] Criminal charges were dismissed after Dick completed the pretrial diversion program.[42] In January 2012, the two alleged victims filed a civil suit against Dick for unspecified damages.[43][needs update]

In June 2018, Dick was charged with misdemeanor sexual battery and battery charges for allegedly groping a woman in April that year.[44] Dick plead not guilty in October 2019 to charges he grabbed an Uber driver by the genitals.[45] He was convicted and sentenced to 90 days in jail in November 2022 and required to register as a sex offender.[46] After his release he was required to register as a sex offender and attend 52 sessions of Alcoholics Anonymous, pay restitution to the victim, receive mental health counseling, and attend sessions of Sexual Compulsives Anonymous.[7][47]

On June 29, 2021, Dick was arrested for felony assault with a deadly weapon. Dick was released from jail on June 30, 2021, after posting the $50,000 bond.[48]

On May 10, 2022, Dick was arrested for felony sexual battery of a man in Orange County, California.[49] However, the case was later dropped when the accuser refused to cooperate with the local police.[7]

In October 2022, Dick was arrested for felony burglary, allegedly of power tools.[50]

Dick was again later arrested in January 2023, for public intoxication and failure to register as a sex offender in Lake Elsinore, California.[51]

Other behavior

In 1999, Dick was questioned in the suicide of actor David Strickland and identified his body. On Saturday, March 20, the pair flew from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and spent three days partying in strip clubs.[52] Strickland hanged himself with a bed sheet over the ceiling beam, and died during the morning hours of March 22, 1999.[53] He was 29 years old.

In 2005, Dick dropped his pants and exposed his genitals to the audience at Yuk Yuk's comedy club in Edmonton, Alberta. He was ushered off the stage, and the second night was cancelled.[54]

Dick groped Pamela Anderson during her 2005 Comedy Central roast. He joked that he was her plastic surgeon and used the premise to repeatedly grab her breasts. During the roast, Dick also attempted to grope Courtney Love, who proceeded to slap him across the face. Dick also mimed performing oral sex on Anderson's husband at the time, Tommy Lee.[55]

At William Shatner's 2006 Comedy Central roast, Dick (performing as the lovechild of James T. Kirk and Spock) allegedly licked Farrah Fawcett, Carrie Fisher, and Patton Oswalt before biting New York Post reporter Mandy Stadtmiller.[56]

In December 2006, Dick upset an audience at The Improv in Los Angeles by shouting "You're all a bunch of niggers!" following an improvised set with comedian Ian Bagg. This was a direct reference to Michael Richards' use of the same epithet to insult hecklers two weeks earlier.[57] He later issued an apology via his publicist:

I chose to make a joke about a subject that is not funny, in an attempt to make light of a serious subject. I have offended a lot of people, and I am sorry for my insensitivity. I wish to apologize to Ian, to the club and its patrons and to anyone who was hurt or offended by my remark.

— Andy Dick

In February 2007, Dick was forcibly removed from the stage during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, after repeatedly touching guest Ivanka Trump. Jimmy Kimmel called in his security guards, Uncle Frank and Veatrice Rice, who assisted as Kimmel dragged Dick off by his legs.[58] Kimmel later said, "Andy did a segment, he was a little out of it. [When Ivanka] came out, he wanted a big, wet kiss. It was time for Andy to go, so I escorted him out by his feet." Kimmel added, "He always makes me a little uncomfortable, you have no idea what he's going to do next." Kimmel also said he had spoken to Dick afterwards and that Dick was not upset about the incident.[59]

In October 2010, Dick was seen exposing himself and making a commotion at Café Audrey in Hollywood.[60]

In January 2011, Dick was thrown out of the AVN Awards, a pornographic movie awards ceremony, after repeatedly groping and stalking adult film actress Tera Patrick and drag queen Chi Chi LaRue.[61]

In April 2011, Dick was at a party connected with the Newport Beach Film Festival. He appeared intoxicated, exposed himself, urinated on a backdrop and afterwards destroyed it by pulling it down. The organizers claimed that this caused thousands of dollars of damage and considered suing Dick over the incident.[62]

In August 2011, Dick was a guest on Greg Fitzsimmons' radio show and made antisemitic statements about Howard Stern. Dick said Stern was a "money-grubbing Jew" and repeatedly called him a "hook-nosed Jew".[63]

In October 2017, Dick was fired from a role in the independent film Raising Buchanan due to allegations of inappropriate behavior that, according to The Hollywood Reporter, "included groping people's genitals, unwanted kissing/licking and sexual propositions of at least four members of the production". While he denied most of the allegations, he said, "I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That's my thing – I licked Carrie Fisher at a roast. It's me being funny."[64] It would later be revealed that in the same month he had also been fired and escorted off the set from another film, Vampire Dad, due to what was referred to as "multiple, flagrant acts of improper conduct and inappropriate contact with several crew members".[65] He later said, "I overtook my medication and took too many Xanax and I was a bit loopy". He said, "I won't do it anymore. I won't lick anyone's face anymore. We have an agreement."[65][51]

In 2019, a man knocked Dick out with a punch to the head, causing him to be sent to the hospital to be monitored for brain bleed. The man accused Dick of groping him, and punched Dick in retaliation.[66][67]

In April 2022, Dick alleged he was mugged in Las Vegas, presenting severe facial injuries.[68][51]

Feud with Jon Lovitz

Dick has had a long rivalry with former NewsRadio costar Jon Lovitz concerning the death of their mutual friend Phil Hartman. According to Lovitz, Dick had given Hartman's wife Brynn cocaine at a Christmas party at Hartman's house in 1997; Brynn, a recovering addict, began using drugs again, culminating in her killing Hartman and herself on May 28, 1998. When Lovitz joined the cast of NewsRadio as Hartman's replacement, he and Dick got into a heated argument in which Lovitz reportedly shouted "I wouldn't be here if you hadn't given Brynn coke in the first place." Lovitz later apologized to Dick for the remark.[69]

In early 2007, Dick allegedly approached Lovitz at a restaurant and said, "I put the Phil Hartman hex on you—you're the next to die."[70] On July 10, 2007, Dick got into a physical altercation with Lovitz at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. Lovitz demanded an apology from Dick, who refused and accused Lovitz of blaming him for Hartman's death. Lovitz then grabbed Dick by his shirt and slammed him backward into the bar, after which the doorman separated the two.[70]
