Sometimes funny...sometimes not so much

You never know what's going on behind the scenes...and behind the eyes. I ran across a blog by comic actress Sherri Shepherd ("Less Than Perfect", and recently "30 Rock") about her friend Andy Dick (both pictured here in an ABC/Disney parade):

My Love...My Heart...My Tears are for Andy

I saw Sherri at a Christian Comedy Association (really!) convention in Murfreesboro, TN, two or three years ago. I was there to visit with another couple of comic friends of mine. Sherri was as hilarious onstage as you would imagine. Her own "sadness behind the laughter" apparently involves divorce, if her comedy routine then and her myspace page now are to be believed. Must be tough to be a comic when you don't feel like being funny.

In case you don't know what Sherri's talking about, according to Jimmy Kimmel something Andy Dick took or drank (or both) backstage began to kick in once his own interview was done and Ivanka Trump was next to him. Here's the video.
