About Andy Dick
Joliet, Illinois native Andy Dick spent most of his early career remaining local. Upon graduating from Joliet West High School—where he was elected homecoming king—he attended Columbia College and started taking classes at Second City. He later moved over to iO, performing on one of its long-form improv teams, before getting his shot as a cast member on The Ben Stiller Show. He's perhaps best known for his extended run on NewsRadio, as well as the star of the self-created sketch comedy outing The Andy Dick Show. To this day, he remains one of the country's foremost improvisers, and has become the kind of guy who will do just about anything to get a rise out of the audience. Dick continues to bring his unbridled energy and outlandish creativity to everything he does.
