trainwreck thursday: featuring andy dick

andy dick is an american comedian/actor. in my opinion, he is best known for being strange and controversial. andy's television career began in 1992 on the sketch comedy show, the ben stiller show. he appeared on a variety of shows over the years, but in 2001, he got his own show. the andy dick show aired on mtv for 3 seasons. he has also had cameo appearances in a few movies including dude where's my car, zoolander and old school.

like i said, i think andy is most famous for his very erratic behavior. need examples? in 1999, andy drove his car into a pole. he was charged with driving under the influence and possession of cocaine and marijuana, to which he pled guilty. in 2005, andy was removed from the stage and his show was cancelled after he dropped his pants and exposed himself to the audience. in 2006, he infuriated his audience when he used racial slurs directed at them. also in 2006, he groped and licked several celebs at the roast of william shatner. he went straight to rehab after this event.

wait, that's not enough? you wanna hear more?

in early 2007, he was removed from the jimmy kimmel show after repeatedly touching another guest, ivanka trump. later in 2007, he was caught urinating on a sidewalk and a building. in 2008, andy was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and sexual battery. he pulled down a 17-year-old girl's tank top and bra. in 2009, andy appeared on dr. drew's show, sober house, in an attempt put an end to his addictions.

in late 2009, andy claimed that he had been sober for about a year. in early 2010, he was arrested on charges of sexual abuse.

(all info from wikipedia)

i feel like andy's entire career has been a trainwreck. the difference between him and many of the other celebs i have featured is that the other celebs have had a decent amount of success with a few downfalls here and there. when it comes to andy, i can't seem to figure out many positive things that have taken place in his career.

arrests, drugs, rehab, sexual assault...
do you think there's any chance for andy to turn his life and career around?

He definitely is towards the top of the train wreck pile up. I think there is ALWAYS a chance to get your life together, but he has tried so many times....such an odd duck.

TLF said...

His career actually began in the late 80's- But you're right.. Such a train wreck! And he's got some talent too! He should get his crap together! I LOVED his character in Old School!

valentine said...

he has definitely gone off the rails, which is too bad because I loved him in NewsRadio.

Nikki Jo said...

LMAO I remember the Andy Dick show! I think I watched maybe one or two episodes.

Token Yankee said...

Uhh, he is one of the top trainwrecks. A few months ago he came to the radio station I listen to and brought his son. He has like a 19 year old son. Definitely feel bad for him.

Salt said...

Until I read this, I couldn't even remember ANYTHING else he was ever famous for besides being a total nutbag. The man is in serious need of a straitjacket. If only so it will make him stop touching people all the time. Gross.

Great post, Tara!! You rock as always!

Dezzy Lou Where Are You said...

So many of the people on your list need to be sent to space and never come home.

The problem is that we give these celebrities the idea that anything they do is okay because they're famous and can make a lot of money when, in truth, if any of our immediate friends or family tried it, they'd be seriously taken out to the woodshed! His humor, to me, is very sophomoric and that's why he hasn't attained real stardom -- like Gallagher, his time is gone...but, he refuses to go!

Kiki said...

so sad. i think he is an okay actor, but clearly crazy. i liked him on the Ben Stiller Show and Less Than Perfect. great post. love the pictures. take care.

Shelley said...

I love Tara! She always does the best train wreck posts! I'm guessing there were originally links to her other ones?

Hutch said...

Oh my goodness, he is definitely up there in terms of All-Time Trainwrecks. Now it's just expected for him to be permanently off the tracks. It will be more shocking if he actually gets his life together for more than 5 years! kind of like Charlie Sheen only Andy's much less likeable.

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

EEEEEK! That mugshot is truly frightening!

Macey said...

andy dick, is....well...a dick. LOL

Nikki said...

I love me some good celebrity gossip!! And yes Andy Dick is ridiculous!!! I think I may have even watched his MTV show at one time or another.

TLF said...

LMAO @ Dezzy's comment! So true!

The Random Blogette said...

I really couldn't remember anything he was actually in either. He is right up there with Lindsay Lohan!

SurferWife said...

He is such a mess. Gotta love The Dick for giving us something to laugh about.

And I love that puckered up pic of him. I used that one on my blog, too.

Ed said...

He's a dick.
