Andy Dick reminisced on his days as a budding star while visiting Chuckler.com
's new web series All Growz Up
, hosted by actress and comedienne Melinda Hill.
The 47-year-old actor explained how a play he starred in at 17 contained a defining moment in his career.
"One day we had rehearsals where my lead woman couldn't show up, so they brought in a 55 year old that I had to makeout with," Andy said with a grimace.
After working together, the woman gave Andy a type-written letter, saying, "Dear Andy, you really have it. I hope you keep this up."
Now, as a veteran star of TV and film, Andy has entirely different advice for aspiring comedians and actors. "Get out!" said the former NewsRadio star. "You'd be more lucky walking into a 7-Eleven and buying a scratcher."
All Growz Up
, which bows today, features a different comedian in every episode talking about their childhood in an alley behind Melinda Hill's weekly, live comedy night, Tiger Lily
, in Los Angeles.
Upcoming guests include Late Night with Jimmy Fallon writer Wayne Federman and New Girl writer Molly McAleer.
