Jon Lovitz Smashes Andy Dick's Face into a Bar, Comedians Rejoice

It was comedian versus comedian last week at an L.A. comedy club which saw a brutal fight between Jon Lovitz and Andy Dick. The fight took place at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles, where the two were reportedly arguing about the murder of their Saturday Night Live colleague, Phil Hartman.

The club's owner, Jamie Masada, witnessed the fight and said: "Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose."

Lovitz said, "All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is an [edited]."

Lovitz and Dick have been at eachothers throats since a Christmas party in 1997 held at Phil Hartman's house. Andy Dick was reportedly doing cocaine at the party when he gave some to Hartman's wife, Brynn, who had been sober for 10 years. Five months later, Hartman's wife flipped out, shot him, and then killed herself. Lovitz blames it all on Dick giving Brynn the cocaine, and once told Andy when filling in on Hartman's TV show Newsradio, "I wouldn't be here now if you hadn't given Brynn that cocaine."

The situation got worse last year when Lovitz claims a drunken Andy Dick walked up to his table at a Hollywood restaurant, snatching his guests drinks, and saying to Lovitz "I put the "Phil Hartman hex" on you - you're the next one to die." Clearly that didn't settle well with Lovitz who said "I wanted to punch his face in, but I don't hit women."

Andy Dick got what had long been coming to him last Wednesday evening at the Laugh Factory, when Lovitz confronted him about the incident last year. All he wanted was an apology, but Dick reportedly denied knowing what he was talking about.

Dick reportedly then leaned in and told Lovitz, "You know why I said it? Because you said I killed Phil Hartman." Lovitz claims not to have said that, and said that Andy then asked him to be in his new movie.

That, apparently, is what set Jon Lovitz off, who then screamed "I don't want to be in your movie! I don't want to be in your life!", and then pushed him repeatedly into a rail.

I saw a comedian talking about Dick a while back. She said Dick isn’t a pedophile, he isn’t strong enough to hold a child down.

Seems that a lot of comedians don’t care for Andy Dick.

Nearly everybody can’t stand him. Good for Lovitz sticking up for his friend Hartman’s memory.

The only thing I’ve ever liked Andy Dick in was when he played Matthew on News Radio.

Wonder how Joe Rogan feels about him.

I loved Phil Hartman and like you said I'm glad Jon stuck up for Phil.

RIP funnyman!

Andy is a dick.

Joe Rogan is a hero for exposing the plagiarism of creeps like “Mencia” and IIRC, Denis Leary.

Wow! I'd never heard that before.

Hartman was a huge talent and I was very saddened when he was murdered.

I was not sure who this Andy Dick guy was and I read the article on him in Wikipedia, the article was all ready updated to include this incident. Kinda cool, I suppose.

I’ve enjoyed Andy Dick’s comedy performances, but I have heard from “insiders” that he’s a jerk in person and is notorious for showing up for work schized out on drugs.

Somebody just had to get this on their cell phone camera!

Only because Andy Dick drives me nuts, thank you John! Of course Phil was funnier than either of you, but I think John is a big enough man to admit it.

I hope Lovitz’s wife, Morgan Fairchild, wasn’t hurt in the melee.

Everything I have seen or read about Andy Dick tells me he had this coming to him.

Andy does have a way of needling people and being generally obnoxious that is quite irritating. Jon is so mild mannered and loveable, I would love to hear what Andy said right before the bashing. Jon's kind of the last person you'd expect to hear was involved in such a fight. Andy's just not funny. Sad, but not funny.

Lovitz said, "All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is an [edited]."

I think that applies to non-comedians as well. ;-)

I still laugh when I remember Lovitz’ impersonation of Dukakis.

Andy Dick ... well, is.

Among the many forms of justice in this story is Dick getting knocked in the dirt by a tubby 50-year-old. Not a lot of way to walk away from that with any pride intact.

I’m not sure whether Tom Green is an Andy Dick wannabe or Andy Dick is a Tom Green wannabe, but either way I’d love to put them both on a tiny, remote island with Pauly Shore and then erase the island from the charts.

Comedians tend to be a pretty cohesive crowd — just watch a Friar’s Club roast, if you can handle the most extreme forms of foul language. The highest form of respect in that world is to say the nastiest things you can think of, and we’re talking about smart, creative people here.

Phil Hartman was the greatest comic actor in decades, and his death was a senseless tragedy especially for the people who knew and loved him, but for anyone who likes to laugh. Every comedian who’s worth a damn knows that. Anyone who doesn’t have any respect is someone real comedians wouldn’t p-— on if he were on fire.

I mean, what earthly good is an SUV that never goes off-road?

Ditto. He was great at plying a twitchy dork (acting???), and he did the best pratfalls in the business. If tumors are to be believed, he could take the falls because he showed up for work anesthetized.

Since then he's been less than useless.

Dennis Miller had Jon Lovitz on his radio show yesterday talking about this. Andy Dick acts demonic.

Remember the video of the appropriately-named Dick harassing Keifer Sutherland? I was waiting for Jack bauer to show up, but he didn’t.

Are there “degrees” of ghey-ness?

Like “macho yet ghey” on one side and “Ross the Intern/Richard Simmons” on the other?

This could be an interesting summer project.

hmmm...
