Who Will Beat Up Andy Dick Next? - Bodog Has Odds

On July 11th, an epic slugfest occurred, but the participants weren’t pro boxers or MMA experts. Nope, it was comedian Andy Dick versus Jon Lovitz. Take a moment and let that image sink in.

Apparently, Lovitz has long blamed Dick for the death of Phil Hartman and his wife, Brynn. After being sober for 10 years, Brynn reportedly got hooked on cocaine again after being given some at a party by Dick. 5 months later, Brynn Hartman killed her husband and then took her own life.

This feud between Dick and Lovitz simmered for years, and the two had an encounter recently where an intoxicated Dick supposedly told Lovitz that he had put the “Phil Hartman hex” on him. The two met up again a few weeks ago at the Laugh Factory, and Lovitz was expecting an apology from Dick for the earlier remarks.

He didn’t receive an apology. Instead, Dick offered him a part in his next movie. Lovitz didn’t see the humor in this and proceeded to open up a can of whoop ass. According to one witness, “Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started gushing out of his nose.”

To his credit, Lovitz didn’t deny his role in the attack. In fact, he told Page Six, “All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is an asshole.”


This begs the question, who will be the next celebrity to fight Andy Dick? Bodog is even taking odds on the subject, but an altercation must occur by the end of the year for any bets to have action. The maximum wager is $50. Now let’s take a look at the contenders.

Dennis Miller 6/1

Courtney Love 7/1

Kathy Griffin 11/2

Lisa Lampanelli 7/1

Betty White 9/1

Harvey Levin 5/1
