I have always been perplexed with people who do downright stupid, hurtful and humiliating things to others and think it funny. As in, “I am so eccentric i.e. “cool” so the rest of you “non-eccentric” aka “normal” aka “boring” people, deal with me and laugh when my acts hurt or humiliate you.” Errr. . . says who? “Normal” people don’t have to put up with it as in the case here. Andy Dick, keep your private parts to yourself, okay. You avoid lawsuits and life goes on.

There is indeed a thin line between offensive contact and what is considered funny in this case, if the allegations are true. Sticking your penis in your guest/customer’s face, all in the name of getting people to laugh, is not funny. Who knows where that penis has been? Hygiene? Infections? Outrageous “assaultive” smell? Sheesh! Robert Tucker didn’t think it funny when Andy Dick stuck his penis in his face. He sued.

“Andy Dick put his penis on my face” – at least so alleges Robert Tucker, an audience member and unfortunate recipient of some of Dick’s unwanted advances during a comedy show in Texas in December 2010. This newest Andy Dick lawsuit, filed in Dallas, is the result of the gratuitous standup show.

Beforewarned: the facts (like Andy Dick) are strange, and raunchy. According to Tucker, during part of the comedy show, Dick changed into a red skirt, black top, and a wig.

Tucker asked Dick for an autograph when Dick walked through the audience. Dick told him to “hold on a minute,” then pulled up a stool next to Tucker. You know where this is going.

Dick then proceeded to pull down his skirt, revealing that he wasn’t wearing any underwear. Then, things got weird when Dick pressed his naked private area against Tucker’s face.

Tucker immediately pulled away, according to the complaint, and Dick returned to the stage with the help of some of the employees at the local club.

Tucker is now seeking damages against Dick, Dick’s talent agency, and the venue where the event was held, according to the filed complaint. In the lawsuit, Tucker is suing Dick personally due to the offensive physical contact, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and defamation by conduct. The suit against Dick’s agency is based on a theory of vicarious liability, a legal theory where the employer may be held liable for an employee’s actions in certain situations. . .”
