WWL-TV on Tuesday published a brief video of comedian and actor Andy Dick getting knocked out with a punch by an unknown assailant outside One Eyed Jacks nightclub on early Saturday morning. The video was pulled from one a nearby surveillance camera.
Dick had recently finished performing a show at the venue in the 600 block of Toulouse Street that evening.
