ANDREW DICE CLAY
To this day, Clay remains the only performer banned for life from MTV. When he released his debut album, DICE, the parental advisory label simply read "Warning: This album is offensive."
But despite the media backlash; Dice’s rise to fame was meteoric, creating Dicemania. He was the first and only comedian to sell out over three hundred sports arenas across the country to an audience of more than twelve million people. He was also the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. As Dice proudly boasted, “I’ve done so many concert tours that I can’t even remember their names.” And in 1992, Dice performed in front of the largest audience ever by a comedian when he shared the stage with Guns & Roses at the Rose Bowl.
Along the way, Dice starred in numerous feature film and television roles including Entourage (The Movie), a critically acclaimed role in Woody Allen’s Academy Award Nominated Blue Jasmine, Man Cometh, Andrew Dice Clay: INDESTRUCTIBLE, Andrew Dice Clay Presents The Blue Show), released best selling DVDs (No Apologies, Dice Rules!), a string of multi-gold and platinum selling CDs (Day The Laughter Died, Filth, and Face Down, Ass Up) and he has been profiled everywhere from Entertainment Tonight to Nightline. In 2009, he appeared on Celebrity Apprentice where he proudly admits he was thrown off the show first. In 2016, the Dice Man will star in a scripted comedy series on Showtime that will be very loosely based on the actor-comedian’s own life titled DICE.
Dice now adds an unapologetic and uncensored autobiography to his list of credits, with the 2014 release of The Filthy Truth. In The Filthy Truth, Dice chronicles his remarkable rise, fall, and triumphant return. Filled with no-holds-barred humor and honesty, The Filthy Truth sets the record straight and gives fans plenty of never-before-shared stories from his career and his friendships with Howard Stern, Sam Kinison, Mickey Rourke, Sylvester Stallone, Axl Rose, and countless others.
The secret to Dice's continuing success is that he has a lot more going for him than shocking and being a potty mouth. Clay is a disciplined, talented and versatile performer/actor. His acting roles and credits clearly show that Clay is capable of being just as funny without the dirty words.
But more than anything, audiences continue to crave that excitement and demand to see The Diceman and Clay is more than happy to oblige and prove the comic icon is INDESTRUCTIBLE.
