Comedian Andy Dick says he was left unconscious and with a “possible brain bleed” after being attacked in New Orleans.

The comic had just performed at One Eyed Jacks nightclub in the Louisiana city’s famed French Quarter when someone knocked him to the ground early Saturday morning, he claimed to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Dick asserted he was “knocked out 100 percent for 15 minutes.”

New Orleans Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment but told the newspaper that they are investigating "a possible assault" against the comedian.

No arrests have been made by State Police, who originally handled the case.

Paris Dylan, a musician who took the stage with the comedian that night, told the Times-Picayune that Dick was “sucker punched” before getting into an Uber, and that his head hit the pavement after he collided with a motorcycle on the way to the ground.

He said Dick appeared to be unconscious at that point.

Dick, 53, has been at the center of controversy throughout his career, including multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. He has also been open about his issues with drugs and alcohol.

A promoter who worked on Dick’s show in New Orleans told the Times-Picayune that the comedian “didn’t disrespect anyone” leading up to the alleged attack.

“Andy was on his best behavior,” Robert Couvillion told the newspaper.
