Comedian Performs at Fla. College

February 16, 1999

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) _ University of North Florida officials aren’t laughing about a campus performance by comedian Andy Dick.

Officials say the ``NewsRadio″ star’s comedy show included vulgar language, sexual innuendo and possible nudity. About two-thirds of the audience walked out when Dick pulled down his pants during Saturday’s performance.

Police could pursue charges if Dick exposed himself. Students assisting Dick backstage say he was wearing a bodystocking.

Roland Buck, vice president for student affairs, drafted a letter Monday to International Creative Management Inc. of New York, which manages Dick, to express the school’s displeasure.

``It has been reported by witnesses that Dick may have either completely exposed himself or that he may have created that illusion. In either case, the university community was highly offended,″ he said.

Dick said he was not upset by the walkout.

``Hey, it’s not for everybody,″ he said. ``People show up expecting to see Matthew and see something different.″

Matthew is the neurotic whiny reporter Dick portrays in″NewsRadio,″ a NBC sitcom.
