The Assistant

Show Summary

Nowadays you're a nobody if you don't have your own reality show. Andy feels that he'd throw his whole career away to have his very own reality show. So he begged MTV and got his wish.

Now he's gonna subject 12 innocent Hollywood wannabes to a grueling process as he searches for his next assistant. The winner gets a new car, a new wardrobe and a cool job working in Hollywood. Andy gets a revived career, 12 shrinks (the kids) to deal with his problems and the opportunity at cocktail parties to say, "Oh, you don't have your own reality show? Well, I do!"

The contestants have a dream, Andy has an agenda--together they are headed for reality chaos as Andy begs, borrows and steals from other shows and discovers that "this whole elimination thing is a lot harder then I thought."

Good luck, suckers!

  • too funny!! i loved it

    Still to this day i still watch it. The show was so random. Andy Dick is just so funny & the way he makes fun of people and the things they did. It’s like it was scripted but then again it's not. But for those kids it was their 15 seconds of fame and it was very, very funny. i wish they would bring it back. Everything they did was for a career in hollyweird and to be Andy Dick's Assistant which Andy Dick is like a C list celebrity and they would say anything to make him feel good and lie to him and say yea you're an A list superstar which he isn't but he is hilarious. And the show was before it’s time funny.moreless
  • The Assistant is about a knockoff of other shows like "America's Next Top Model," "Survivor" and any others prime time shows. We also learn that Andy Dick is a very funny man.moreless

    I really loved this show. I wish they could bring it back. I wish i had the DVD. Andy Dick is a very funny man. Hopefully he will make another show that is equally as funny. The only problem that I have with this show is that it did not last as long has I hopefully would have liked it to run for. Since it is on MTV I knew it would last that long because MTV comes up with a new show every other week. Andy Dick had another show before this which was equally as funny but I was way to young to remeber it. I've seen it on youtube a couple of times. HO-ho and YUM-yum's. weeeeeeeeee!moreless
  • LMFAO!!!!

  • A show in it's own time! A classic!

    Andy Dicks The Assistant brings laughs to the small screen. The assistant should be brought back to the small screen. Andy is the funniest man on MTV! He provides a since of humor in every scene. This show has the real power to be the best reality TV show on Tv.

  • How can reality be so funny?... It is reality, right?

    The Assistant has just made it to the UK, and is quite possibly the funniest show ever. I was snorting with laughter from start to finish; and airing it on Thursdays, after the end of Reno 911! on FX and before Larry Sanders makes a great night of comedy.

    The best bit? Who knows- it's a blur of hilarity, but real standout moments are Andy's efforts to put the petals back on one guy's rose, having dramatically pulled them off; His suggestion of drug tests for all- including the foul-mouthed butler; and the classic move of eliminating someone after about two minutes- it's Andy's show and he'll do whatever the fuck he wants!

    LOVE this show!moreless
