Andy Dick: 'If I Could Do My Career Over Again...'

"...I would not have been a complete moron on camera."

Dude, words to live by. Searching for public redemption after extremely public fuck-ups, Andy Dick did a stint on VH1's Sober House, and now states he is over 10 months dry. He will be at Zanies tonight, Friday and Saturday doing (in front of drunks) what can only be described as an exercise in multimedia saturation--it will be Twittered, taped and MySpaced, all online, ad infinitum. When everything is recorded anyway, why not jump the gun and record everything first?

It was incorrectly assumed this was going to be a stand-up performance, but no. It is "Andy Dick, The Musical." Comma not colon. He is not Denise Richards and it is a good idea, according to the gentleman in question, "to keep the Dicks away from the colons." Since it's a musical there is indeed music involved, in the form of guitar-playing with between-song tangents and wanderings. Though Mr. Dick stated that he's been doing a version of this act for 20 years, we were informed that "no two shows are the same."

His son Lucas will be opening, doing a more traditional stand-up routine before Andy's "provocative and strange one-man show." When asked what it was like to go on tour with his family, he said he was hesitant at first: "I was thrown back to the old days where I had these alcoholic flashbacks with airplanes and hangovers and I was like, I don't want to do that again. I forget I'm not drinking anymore."

He also said that Nashville is a lot like Austin, Texas. Take that any way you want.
