They recently held a screening of the comedic documentary, "Everybody Has an Andy Dick Story" at the infamous Just for Laughs festival in Montreal earlier this year and they were supposed to screen it again at the Chicago Film Festival in November. The film has a number of famous actors and comedians in it including Ben Stiller, Jimmy Dore, Steve-O, Pauly Shore and Nick Swardson. Basically a collection of comedy icons sharing their crazy and sometimes sincere Andy Dick stories. Also, the film being screened in Chicago was a big deal because that's where Andy began his career.
So what happened?
Well, apparently Andy Dick is under investigation for some pretty serious sexual assault allegations.
The allegations are that the comedian groped, licked and even propositioned people. Dick denies any such incidents and says he never groped anyone. He claims that the most he may have done is to kiss someone on the check and then licked them. But, this is normal behavior for him.

Andy admits that sometimes his behavior can be quite outrageous, but he confined his actions to flirtation and asking people out. He firmly claims that he is no sexual predator.
A statement from the art director of the Chicago Film Festival says that they will not be part of anything that reeks of victimizing people and they don’t want to wait for things to calm down before making their decision. They are more concerned about maintaining integrity in the comedy industry.
