  • Dallas nightclub patron sues comedian Andy Dick

    DALLAS — A Texas man is suing comedian Andy Dick over his December performance at a Dallas nightclub.
    Robert Tucker claims he suffered emotional distress and defamation as a result of an alleged incident in which Dick exposed his genitals while walking through the audience.
    The suit filed May 10 also names a talent agency that represents the comedian and the club where he performed. It says they should have known Dick’s “long history of assaulting patrons.”
    The lawsuit cites Dick’s January 2010 arrest on felony sexual abuse charges, after allegations he groped a bouncer and patron at a Huntington, W. Va., bar, as well as other incidents.

    The staff wasn’t disappointed.
    “Normally customers come to us to find a frame that enhances their work” said Village Arts co-owner Ken Nebel. “This time, we turned the tables on them, and the results are fantastic.”
