Andy Dick, stage provocateur

"Andy Dick's Stocking Stuffer Music & Comedy Show," Friday, Jack's Patio Bar, 3030 Thousand Oaks; doors at 7 p.m. $24-$30 at frontgatetickets.com

Yes, outrageous comedy provocateur Andy Dick is sharing the stage this weekend with One-Eyed Doll and Dick Wiggler. No, they are not one and the same person.

“Andy Dick's Stocking Stuffer Music & Comedy Show” featuring Andy Dick and the Bitches of the Century hits Jack's Patio Bar on Friday. The lineup includes Dick's son, stand-up comedian Lucas Dick.

Dick, 44, describes his long-running rock act (with guitarist Tim Walsh) as a fun, if more vulgar, vision of Laurie Anderson performance art and Andy Kaufman-style absurdity. Don't come expecting song parodies.

“No, no, no! I'm not Weird Al Yankovic. I don't do parodies. I do completely original songs that my band and I write,” said Dick. “It's not just a band. It's a whole show. I tell stories. It's very autobiographical. There are never any two shows alike.”

The first song Dick ever came up with was “Little Brown Ring” for Howard Stern. He opens with “Good Luck With That.”

“I'm more of an odd, freakish entertainer, like a provocateur,” he said. “I even say my shows are performance art. There are no jokes in my little show. I love music, but I'm not Freddie Mercury. It's very much like Andy Kaufman.”

A year of living Dickishly

It has been a wacky year for Andy Dick, best known for his role in the ’90s sitcom “NewsRadio,” “The Andy Dick Show,” Comedy Central roasts — and dropping his pants. His much-publicized alcohol- and drug-fueled binges have led to indecent exposure episodes and a felony arrest this year for allegedly groping two men at a West Virginia nightclub. He denied the misconduct. “I’m in the double digits of rehab,” Dick said on “The Joy Behar Show” this summer. No wonder TMZ loves the guy.

Not-so-vital-data

Notable tweet from the bespectacled Los Angeles comic: “Lil’ Andy Dick will stay in my pants.”

Actor who took Dick to his first AA meeting: The late Chris Farley

Number of times in rehab: 10. “It helps. Each time, it has. It got me through till the next one,” said Dick.

New York Daily News headline about Dick: “Wee bit of trouble”

What one of Dick’s accusers alleged happened at Rum Runners in West Virginia: “I felt a hand go in my pants.”

Long-running feud: Dick has trashed Jon Lovitz (and vice versa) since “News Radio.” The back and forth has even gotten physical, famously at the Laugh Factory in L.A. “I smashed his back and his head into the back of the bar,” Lovitz said on “The Dennis Miller Show.” “The doorman broke it up.”

Dick on Dick: “(Lucas) is better than me. He’s a real stand-up comic. He’s really funny.”

The bands

One-Eyed Doll: Rock ’n’ roll Raggedy Ann combines goth-girl performance art with headbanging metal and punk rock explosiveness. Singer Kimberly Freeman is the precious, self-absorbed and hyperactive star. The Austin act is promoting its latest album, “Break.”

Dick Wiggler & the Cattle Guards: Cowpunk gets a kick in the Wranglers from this rowdy San Antonio roots and Americana act. Hell-raisin’ always sounds fun in their hands. Or as they put it: Hank Williams Jr. at 78 rpm.

I confess I think Andy Dick is sometimes VERY funny. Don’t spread that around.

Lovitz blames Dick for Phil Hartman's death. He claims that Dick (re)introduced Brynn Hartman to cocaine. Brynn killed Phil Hartman in his sleep, while she was high on cocaine.

My ex wife and her sister were close friends with him in high school (Joliet West).

He never grew up.

1. Chris Farley introduced Andy Dick to AA. Chris is dead. Andy’s still here. God, You took the wrong one. Either that, or You wanted to give proof that the good die young.

2. A couple of my younger fraternity brethren (2000s) once ran into Andy at the urinals in the men’s restroom at the Viper Room. Andy was apparently being himself. One of the guys...deliberately missed the urinal.

I’ll give him this: He’s not averse to ripping on himself. And it’s often very funny when he does! His performances at the Shatner Roast and on the MTV Movie Awards (Matrix Reloaded Parody) were priceless self-parodies.

Adopted?

Andy used to brag about being gay.

Full disclosure, Jon Lovitz hates this coked up Dick because he got Phil Hartman's wife back on drugs and in the bender she went on, she shot Phil dead.

"Feud" would mean that Andy has some reason for being angry with Jon.

With regards to the feud, I mean Dick has no EXCUSE to be angry at Jon.
