Andrew Dice Clay: "The Diceman Cometh" - Comedy Recess

Andrew Dice Clay is an American stand-up comedian, actor, musician and producer. He rose to prominence in the late 1980s with a brash, macho, persona known as "The Diceman". In 1990, he became the first stand-up comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden for two consecutive nights. That same year, he played the lead role in the comedy-mystery film The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.

Clay has appeared in several films and television shows, including critically acclaimed supporting roles in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine (2013) and Bradley Cooper's directorial debut A Star Is Born (2018). He continues to focus on acting while still touring and performing stand-up. He launched his new podcast, I'm Ova Hea' Now, in September 2018.

In 1989 he had a HBO Special "The Diceman Cometh", which was right at the height of his popularity. Many people would consider this type of comedy vulgar, and the routine would probably not go over well in present times. However it is a great reflection of where we were as a society back in 1989. Check out the entire show here. It definitely brings me back to my teenage years and still giggle when I hear these jokes. Enjoy !!!!
