Andy Dick

The New 'Kramer'?

12/5/2006 2:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

andy_dick_tmz-1Andy Dick hasn't learned anything from the Michael Richards incident.

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!"

Prejudiced Celebs: Click to launch galleryThe stunned crowd gasped and stared at each other. Bagg tried to play it cool and move on with his set, but the laughs weren't there.

Calls to Dick's rep were not immediately returned.

UPDATE: TMZ has received a statement from The Improv acknowledging the incident: "The Improv is aware of Andy Dick's behavior on Saturday night. Our policy is that material deemed offensive by both famous and up and coming comedians is judged on a case by case basis. In this particular case, Mr. Dick was commenting on a current event. Was it intelligent? No. Was it funny? No. But was it racist? No. It was not directed at any audience member in particular and although it was in bad taste -- it was a comment on the Michael Richards fiasco."

Hell if a person is honestly funny, then it may be funny even if he talks about racist sh*t. This sad excuse for a human should be hit by a truck.

First of all white people run the country, so I guess they would not feel the same type of things someone else would if the were called racist names.

To justify enslaving people and brutalizing them is just inhumane, and to think if any person of your race was treated the way Black, Hispanic, Native Americans, Jewish people etc. have been treated the way they have been, you sympathize with their plight a lot more. The white people who came to this country when is was taken over from the Native Americans and Mexicans were outcasts.. Europeans didn't want the diseased, poor, theives in their country any longer and didn't give a rats a** whether they sailed to the America's... How do any group of people have it within them to persecute, kill, brutalize, beat, demonize, another human being, and find pleasure in it is beyond me.

People need to stop the hatred and the violence, now...

Why don't they bring back "All in the Family" so we can learn to laugh at ourselves again?

To me:

I would say it's pretty obvious blacks have a disporportionatly large percentage of their population who are criminals, who are uneducated, etc...etc...etc...

To deny that is stupidity.

The black community is f***ed and is f***ing themselves royally again and again and again.

I am starting to thinks blacks as a whole are not that bright and have some serious self destruction issues.

Is there such thing as a middle class black neighborhood. No.

And forget an upper class black neighborhood.

Blacks communities are crime and drug ridden dens of poverty, destruction, chaos, unwanted dogs roaming the streets, unwanted babies with their grandparents.

Loud, Obnoxious, Rude, Selfish Cesspools of Filth.

Black People: Your community as a whole is f***ing disgusting and sorely in need of repair.

And worrying about anyone calling you N*****s is the least of your problems.

I support all of your efforts to get your sh*t together but you have a long way to go.

I DO BELIVE I WOULD RATHER SIT IN THE AUDIENCE AND OBSERVE BRITNEY SHOWING OFF HER COO THAN LISTEN TO SOME DIMWIT COMMEDIAN OR RUDE PERFORMER GO ON ABOUT THEIR POLITICS AND RUN DOWN THE COUNTRY.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT IS SAID, LEAVE. IF YOU DON'T LIKE WHAT I JUST WROTE THEN STICK YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EYES SO YOU CAN'T HEAR THIS.

While this word is offensive to many, you all act like its satan incarnate. We do have Freedom of Speech in this Country, or did everyone forget that? Is it because the PC Police are around, because if they are, they may look a lot like the Secret Police in Nazi Germany. I am not a proponent of this word, however, it is just that, a F*****G word. Anyone remember the old child hood saying "Stick and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me!!"?? It just a word!

OK, enough about being bipolar. I am bipolar, did not choose to be so and am on meds. It is about a chemical imbalance of the neurotransmitters. Using bipolar as "slang" is merely one step this side of being racist. Kindly stop and show that you are better educated :-)
