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."

Andy Dick has never been funny. He still isn't. I doubt he ever will be.

Why is it that "KRamer" gets in huge, career-ending trouble for calling blacks "n*ggers" and now Andy Dick is heading for the same fate, but Talk Radio Host Hal Turner (www.HalTurnerShow.com) uses that word (as well as Spic, Kike, Faggot, Sodomite) EVERY SINGLE WEEK on his talk radio show - but never pays any price at all for his use of such talk??

The difference between "Kramer" Andy Dick and Hal Turner is that Turner MEANS what he says and refuses to ever apologize for it!

Maybe there's something to be said for people like Hal Turner who say what they really think and don't cave-in to the politically correct crowd

Why haven't we heard any backlash after Denzel Washington stated earlier this year on---it was either Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight (I heard and saw it MYSELF)---that he would never kiss a white actress on-screen because he didn't want to upset his fans ie, his BLACK fans! This is very racist and yet no one has grouped him with the other celeb. racists! Why do blacks who are racist against whites never get called on it??? Racism comes in ALL colors!

Michael, Seriously! Well said. I wish I could have articulated my thoughts as well as you have articulated and expressed yours. I believe I would like to know you in person. I highly value reasoned thought.

You see African American men walking down the street gangsta style, puffed out jackets, in packs staring you down and intimidating everyone - then they play the victim in public arenas like this.

O.J. Simpson - hell even Michael Jackson tried playing the race card in his case.

Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and SO MANY other African Americans freely call eachother n*ggers and whites crackers. No other race on the planet has tried editing a word out of a language because of the "power" of the word. African Americans need to get over the "society owes me" mentality.

A Gay man in America has fewer rights then a black man in America.

The Jews don't have the "society owes me" mentality. Gays don't have that mentality. Women don't have that mentality. Why does the African American community feel that society owes them something and the power of a word is to damaging for a non African American to understand?

As a Gay man I'm sick and tired of the black community crying racism by the uttering of a word, by that definition everyone calling Gays a queer, faggots, homo, etc. etc. will discriminate against Gays.

I find it ironic that in the Richards case the two HECKLERS that were disturbing his show to the extent that he couldn't finish his act, now want him to apologize and are asking for a settlement. Typical - The African American mentality needs to change

Andy Dick is not funny. However, it is not Constitutional to censor the word 'n*gger'. Already, censorship is becoming America's favorite past-time. The US gov't (and their corporate friends), already detain protestors, ban books like "America Deceived" from Amazon and Wikipedia, and fire 21-year tenured, BYU physics professor Steven Jones because he proved explosives, thermite in particular, took down the WTC buildings. Free Speech forever.

For all you idiots out there: I rather be a so called nigger, which is the name that the Devils (Europeans) gave africans and Blacks. Than be a truely existing child of satan that walks this planet spreading hate until this day. With history and facts to prove it. Fast from that hog and grow up.

Why is it that blacks are so infurated with whites saying nig*ger and then they give us history lessons of the pain involved with its use and then use it every third word when they get with their homies.
Whites will not use the word if blacks promise to:

1. finish high school
2. get a job
3. marry the woman they have kids with
4. take care of those kids
5. dont let grandma raise them
6. stay off crack
7. stop murdering your own brothers
8. keep your rap sheets (arrest records for the white people) to one page
7. stop idolizing gangster and thugs
