Wiki

Andrew Ryan "Andy" Dick (born December 21, 1965) is an American comedian, actor, musician and television/film producer. Dick became well known for his sensationalistic and controversial behavior related to drug and alcohol abuse. His first regular television role was on the short-lived but highly influential Ben Stiller Show. In the mid-1990s, he had a long-running stint on NBC's NewsRadio. He briefly had his own program, The Andy Dick Show on MTV, and he is also noted for his outlandish behavior from a number of Comedy Central Roasts.

Dick was born in Charleston, South Carolina and was adopted at birth by Allen and Sue Dick. He was raised Presbyterian. As a child, Dick and his family lived in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, Yugoslavia, and Illinois. He attended Lassiter High School, which was being temporarily housed at George Walton Comprehensive High School in Cobb County, Georgia. Dick was in numerous theater productions during high school and was elected homecoming king his senior year in 1983. While in high school, Dick tended to use his name as a joke; one day, he dressed in a homemade superhero costume and presented himself at school as "Super Dick". Dick graduated from Joliet West High School in 1984, and is a friend of actor Anthony Rapp, whom he had known since childhood. After graduating from high school, Dick joined Chicago's Second City and attended Columbia College Chicago. He took improv comedy classes at i.O. (formerly 'ImprovOlympic') in the mid-1980s.

Dick started his television comedy career as a cast member on the sketch comedy program The Ben Stiller Show, which aired on the Fox Network from September 1992 to January 1993.
