I was a ‘Dick,’ says Andy in apology

The last weekend a small scandal erupted in another Los Angeles comedy club.  Comedian Andy Dick let loose with the “N” word, and TMZ broke the story. Now Dick says that he made a huge mistake.

Dick issued an apology via his publicist: “I chose to make a joke about a subject that is not funny. In an attempt to make light of a serious subject, I have offended a lot of people, and I am sorry for my insensitivity. I wish to apologize to Ian, to the club, and its patrons and to anyone who was hurt or offended by my remark.” Reports TMZ in their follow up to the story.

Andy was interrupting Ian Bagg set at the Melrose Improv comedy club Saturday, when he got out of his seat and jumped onstage, wisecracked about Michael Richards, and referred to the crowd by the “N” word. Reported TMZ.
