Andy Dick

Andy Dick was rushed to the hospital this weekend after being brutally attacked outside a New Orleans club.

Surveillance video shows a man in dark clothing sucker punching the comedian. The incident took place early Saturday morning after his performance at the One Eyed Jacks nightclub.

Dick told Nola.com during a phone interview that he was “knocked out 100 percent for 15 minutes.” He also said he was placed in the ICU at the hospital and observed for a “possible brain bleed.”

“We walk out the club to Uber and were saying bye to my friends. Andy was standing in front of the club when the guy cold cocked him while he was talking to someone,” Dick’s booking agent, Robert Couvillion told Fox affiliate WVUE. “Andy’s head fell into the wall, then fell into the motorcycle, then cracked on the cement.”
