Andy Dick Goes Michael Richards at Comedy Club
Comedian Andy Dick went Michael Richards over the weekend.
According to sources, the hopped-up comedian hopped onstage Saturday at L.A.’s Improv comedy club and dropped the n-bomb on a room full of stunned clubgoers. Andy was heckling comedian Ian Bagg during his routine, when Dick allegedly got out of his seat, jumped onstage and began joking with Bagg. The subject of Michael Richards came up, but the two comics quickly moved past it. As Dick exited the stage, he suddenly grabbed the mic and shouted at the crowd, “You’re all a bunch of niggers!”
Unlike the Richards incident, there’s no video of this one. My guess is that he was trying to be funny by mocking Richards, since there’s no provocation here and thus no context for a racial outburst. Either way, it doesn’t appear to have come across as funny. It may be that racial humor is best left to black comedians.
