Otherwise, Dick Jokes are Always Funny
The kids at sheckymag.com are reporting that bon vivant Andy Dick made an unforgettable impression at a Yuk Yuks in Edmonton last week. He was paid $7,500 to, according to a witness, stand at the mic already drunk, drinking even more, making racial jokes, and whipping his Mister out for a little fresh air.
"(A patron) said Dick drank heavily on stage. By the time the brief show ended, he said he was worried someone in the angry crowd would physically attack the comedian."
Suddenly, my long-held dreams of standup comedy seem utterly plausible, although I might be a little unqualified for the weenie-flashing portion of the show.
