From this morning’s NY Post.



May 17, 2007 -- TEJ Herring, the longtime publicist for wacko comic Andy Dick, quit yesterday, less than an hour before Dick was to appear on the CW11 "Morning News" and then be feted at a roast on Howard Stern's Sirius satellite radio show. Dick was a no-show for the Ch. 11 gig. Then, reports The Post's Don Kaplan, as dozens of comedians began to gather in Stern's studio for the roast, producer Gary Dell'Abate had to send an intern and a Town Car to extract Dick from his hotel room. Dell'Abate told Stern about the mess just as the show was starting. "The e-mail came in five minutes ago and [Herring] had resigned five minutes before that," he told Stern, adding that Dick had "canceled [on CW11] at the last second . . . the people at CW11 hate him." At the roast, Dick was crucified by the likes of Artie Lange, Greg Fitzsimmons, Dave Attell and Lisa Lampanelli, who joked, "People are surprised when they hear that Andy has kids, because the kids don't admit it. To avoid embarrassment, they tell people that their father is Alec Baldwin."
