New York Comedy Festival reunites cast of The Ben Stiller Show to stare nervously at Andy Dick

In welcome news for fans of cult comedy and palpable senses of dread, the New York Comedy Festival has announced that it will stage a Nov. 10 reunion of Fox's unfairly short-lived The Ben Stiller Show, gathering Stiller, Janeane Garofalo, Bob Odenkirk, and Judd Apatow on the stage of Manhattan's Paley Center to reminisce about the series while watching Andy Dick out of the corner of their eye, just waiting. The tribute to the show comes 20 years after it was canceled, and approximately 13 years after America first became aware that Andy Dick is a fucking crazy person with some serious problems that make enjoying his comedy incredibly difficult. The panel is expected to include various clips from the series along with a wistful conversation with the cast about why its dream-team ensemble could have all become so independently successful yet their show be so doomed, with periodic breaks for Andy Dick whipping out his penis, groping audience members, and screaming something racist, time permitting.
