In the mid-1990s, he had a long-running stint on NBC's NewsRadio and was a supporting character on Less than Perfect.
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. He also landed in 6th place on the 16th season of Dancing with the Stars.
Early Life[edit | edit source]

He attended Lassiter High School, which was being temporarily housed at George Walton Comprehensive High School in Cobb County, Georgia.
Dick appeared in numerous theater productions during his high school years and was elected homecoming king his senior year in 1983. While in high school, Dick tended to use his name as a joke; and one day, he dressed in a homemade superhero costume and presented himself at school as "Super Dick".
