In reality, Andy's comedy shows rarely suck and his new Oglio Comedy CD is jammed with hilarious wit from the unusual and creative mind of Andy Dick. The album, recorded live at Cobb's Comedy Club (San Francisco) and at The Ohio State University is a blend of spoken word storytelling and acoustic music performances based on his current live act, some of which are acoustic versions from his rock album "Andy Dick & The Bitches of the Century" to be re-issued by Oglio Comedy as a digital only release.
Carl Caprioglio, label president for Oglio Comedy Records on Andy, "Andy Dick is one of the most creative and unique talents working today. I am amazed at his creativity and his willingness to give 100% to his audience."

A comic innovator, actor, musician and notorious bad boy, Andy has appeared in numerous movies, TV shows and music videos. His early visibility came via television commercials. This exposure helped Andy meet fellow actor/writer Ben Stiller, who cast him in the short film 'Elvis Stories', leading to a role as a regular cast member in the Emmy Award winning The Ben Stiller Show.
Though he has enjoyed an illustrious and successful television career, audiences have most recently enjoyed Andy for four seasons on the ABC show Less Than Perfect, playing office geek "Owen Kransky". Additional television credits include a five-year role as accident-prone reporter, "Matthew Brock", on the critically acclaimed comedy NewsRadio. Soon after the NewsRadio success, Andy was offered a self-titled hit show for MTV, The Andy Dick Show, which he wrote, starred in and directed. Rolling Stone Magazine hailed it as "the funniest thing on TV." Following the success of The Andy Dick Show, he renewed his relationship with MTV by creating a reality based show "The Assistant" where contestants competed for the coveted assistant position. Andy will return to television with his own variety show on Comedy Central in 2007.
Andy recently completed his feature directorial debut entitled Danny Roane: First Time Director, which premiered at the South By Southwest Film festival. He wrote Danny RoaneŠ and plays the starring role in this semi autobiographical "mock-umentary." He is currently filming Blonde Ambition with Jessica Simpson and Luke Wilson. Recent film appearances include roles in "Employee of the Month" with Dane Cook and Jessica Simpson (DVD release on 1/16/07). You'll notice his voiceover work in the animated "Happy N'ever After." Additional feature-film credits include For the Boys, Inspector Gadget, Reality Bites, Best Men, Road Trip, Looser, Zoolander, The Cable Guy, Old School and the hilarious independent film The Hebrew Hammer. He's appeared in music videos from Jessica Simpson, The Donnas, Everclear, Ash, The Eels and Sheryl Crow.
Born in Charleston, South Carolina, Andy Dick learned early in life to use his sense of humor to gain friends and to keep the attention centered on him. His love for the theater quickly grew after he saw his first stage production. By the end of high school, the young theater fan was president of his drama club and on his way to Illinois Wesleyan University and Columbia College in Chicago, where he began his studies with Del Close at Second City, where he eventually became part of the company.
Upcoming Tour Dates Include: Residency at Los Angeles' Hollywood & Vine, ongoing appearances at the Andy Dick Black Box Theatre (near the Improv Olympic) and opening select dates for Tenacious D.
