As the actor makes the news this week, some have wondered about Andy Dick’s net worth and career. We’ll take a look…
Andy Dick’s career spans three decades
Actor and comedian Andy Dick’s early career began in the late 80s when he was dubbing as part of the anime Laputa: Castle in the Sky.
In the 90s, he rose to fame in Hollywood as part of the comedy sketch series The Ben Stiller Show. He was also in the 1995 spin-off of the secret agent sitcom Get Smart, where he played screener Zach Smart.
As reported by Vulture, in a previous interview with Laughspin, Dick previously revealed right after he left The Ben Stiller Show, he was offered the opportunity to join the cast of Saturday Night Live. However, he ultimately said no.
He thought about why he had refused. He explained, “I said no because I had just gotten off of The Ben Stiller Show, but the truth is I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to do a few characters each week.”
While he turned down SNL, he became known for his screen appearances. He starred in the NBC sitcom NewsRadio as well as the films Inspector Gadget and Road Trip. Dick has also voiced roles in the animated series Clone High and Sammy, as well as himself in Family Guy and The Simpsons.
Elsewhere outside of his acting credits, audiences may be familiar with Dick for writing, producing and directing his own comedy sketch show, The Andy Dick Show.
Andy Dick’s net worth explored
As of 2022, Andy Dick has an estimated fortune of $300,000, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Dick’s net worth appears to have dropped significantly in recent years, as The Sun reported that his net worth was around £2.2 million ($2.5 million) in 2018.
While The Richest estimated the actor and comedian’s net worth to be $3 million in 2016.
Dick was accused of groping a rideshare driver in West Hollywood in 2018 and charged the following year with misdemeanor sexual assault.
Dick pleaded not guilty to the 2018 charge. The case must go to trial, his attorney in that case, Daniel Kapelovitz, said. Kapelovitz told NBC he was not representing Dick in Wednesday’s alleged incident.
