Jon Lovitz beats down Andy Dick
Laugh Factory owner Jamie Masada, who saw the fight, said, “Jon picked Andy up by the head and smashed him into the bar four or five times, and blood started pouring out of his nose.” Lovitz told the paper, “All the comedians are glad I did it because this guy is a (bleep)hole.”
The throwdown stemmed from an incident at an L.A. restaurant last year, when Dick went to Lovitz’s table and said “I put the ‘Phil Hartman hex’ on you — you’re the next one to die.” (This refers to the fact that the aptly named Dick offered Hartman’s wife Brynn cocaine at a party in 1997 after she had been clean for 10 years. Five months later, Brynn shot and killed Phil and then herself.)
Then Lovitz and Dick ran into each other last Wednesday at the Laugh Factory. “I wanted him to say he was sorry for the ‘Phil Hartman hex,’ “ Lovitz told the Post. “First he says, ‘I don’t remember saying that.’ Then he leans in and says, ‘You know why I said it? Because you said I killed Phil Hartman.’ Which I never said. Then he asked me to be in his new movie. I grabbed him by the shirt and leaned him over and said, ‘I don’t want to be in your movie! I don’t want to be in your life!’ I pushed him against the rail. Then I pushed him again really hard. A security guard broke it up. I’m not proud of it ... but he’s a disgusting human being.”
