LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Andy Dick played to a room full of cops when he returned to the stage in Huntington, West Virginia on Saturday night, less than 24 hours after being arrested on felony sexual abuse charges.
Tom Schaefer, who runs the Funny Bone Comedy Club in Huntington, told Access Hollywood that Dick’s show was tamer than it had been the night before and that he opened the show by asking, “Are there any cops in the building?”
According to Schaefer, a chorus of shouts went up from an estimated 30 officers in civilian clothes who were in attendance. Dick is scheduled to perform at the club again on Sunday night.
He is due in court for a hearing on February 2. As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the former “The Andy Dick Show” star allegedly groped two individuals at a bar following his Friday night performance at the Funny Bone. In police reports obtained by Access, Dick is alleged to have grabbed the crotch of a security guard before allegedly committing the act again and “then kissing” a second “victim.”
The comedian is currently serving out a three-year probation over a 2008 incident for which he was arrested on suspicion of drug possession and sexual battery.
