REPORT: Comedian Andy Dick KNOCKED UNCONSCIOUS,  assaulted outside a French Quarter club

Comedian-musician Andy Dick had finished a performance at the One Eyed Jacks nightclub on Toulouse Street in the French Quarter early Saturday when he was knocked to the ground outside the club and lost consciousness, according to Dick and witnesses.

Guitarist-singer Paris Dylan, who performed with the comedian, said that after the show, the duo met with fans and posed for photos as usual, then stepped out of the club onto the street where a crowd awaited.

As Dick prepared to enter an Uber vehicle, Dylan said, the 53-year-old was “sucker punched” by an assailant. Dylan said that Dick hit a motorcycle as he fell to the ground and his head struck the pavement. Dylan said that he was unable to communicate with Dick, who appeared unconscious as he lay on his back.
