Biography

With his memorably eccentric appearances on popular sitcoms like "NewsRadio" (NBC, 1995-99) and "Less than Perfect" (ABC, 2002-06), wacky comedian Andy Dick made his name both on screen as a certifiable scene stealer and off screen as being something close to certifiable. For a substantial portion of his career, Dick lived something of an Andy Kaufman-like existence, where his real-life antics like groping random strangers and publicly exposing himself caused both concern and outrage of whether or not he was merely performing. In 1999, part of the mystery was solved when he was arrested for hit-and-run and felony possession of drugs. Of course, he continued to appear on screen on the short-lived sketch comedy series "The Andy Dick Show" (MTV, 2001-02), appearing in films like "The Hebrew Hammer" (2003) and "Blonde Ambition" (2007), picking up guest spots on "Community" (NBC, 2009) and "2 Broke Girls" (CBS, 2011- ) and even becoming a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars" (ABC, 2005- ). Though Dick underwent treatment for substance abuse in the years that followed, which included a stint on "Sober House" (VH1, 2009-2010), his fame as a talented comedic performer was eventually eclipsed by his outsized personality and growing penchant for self-destruction, which included numerous arrests for sexual assault, drug possession and public urination, all of which turned him into little more than a punch line.
