Showtime Orders a Semi-Autobiographical Comedy Starring Andrew Dice Clay

The Diceman is headed to TV. According to The Wrap, Showtime has ordered a six-episode single-cam comedy starring Andrew Dice Clay called Dice, which will follow "semi-true accounts of Dice's efforts to revive his career and support his family" in Las Vegas.

Old School and The Hangover Part II's Scot Armstrong created and wrote the series, which will premiere on Showtime sometime next year.

Andrew Dice Clay Says Woody Allen Discussed Returning to Standup with Him

A couple weeks ago, Woody Allen said in an interview that he's been "toying with the idea" of returning to standup after seeing Mort Sahl perform recently. Now, Andrew Dice Clay, who played a supporting role in Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine, tells THR that Allen talked to him about doing standup again. "We got into the whole conversation about how he started, and then we talked about where I started, and it really got his juices going again," said Clay. He added, "I hope he does it. I think he should do Radio City with me, personally."

It seems normal until you get to The Diceman and Benjamin Linus. No word on what the film is about but it is set in San Francisco so… obviously… umm… Maybe, the film is about Alec Baldwin (the Woody Allen surrogate) playing a former comedian, who now is a television executive, who visits San Francisco with his actress wife (played by Cate Blanchett as a Diane Keaton type) to visit his son (Sarsgaard) who is about to marry a woman (Hawkins) but  is [...]

Six Comics Aziz Ansari Is Joining as Madison Square Garden-Worthy

Yesterday, The Wrap confirmed earlier reports that standup Aziz Ansari is set to headline at New York's Madison Square Garden as part of his new tour Modern Romance, which also includes stops in Dallas, Houston, D.C., Philadelphia, and Las Vegas, not to mention a book slated for a September 2015 release. "There is something very insane and amazing about starting standup in New York City at the lowest rung — open-mic spots — and then many years later going to the other utmost, utmost extreme of playing Madison Square Garden," Ansari told Billboard last month. "I felt a sense of that when I did Carnegie Hall, [...]

Is There Any Value to Be Found in the Intentionally Offensive Comedy of Andrew "Dice" Clay?

Madison Square Garden has a capacity to fit over 19,000 human beings in one area. The fabled stadium is host to both the New York Knicks and the New York Rangers. Hundreds, if not thousands of musicians from almost every genre of music have played at this stadium, but only a handful of standup comics have had the ability to headline this vast monolith, most recently Kevin Hart and Eddie Izzard. However, only one comedian has performed here and completely sold out the stadium two nights in a row. That comic is Andrew “Dice” Clay.

Let that sink in for a moment. For a brief run during the late [...]

Here's Louis C.K. on Letterman last night, telling a story abut finding a dead guy in the water while piloting his boat and also playing a voicemail from his Blue Jasmine costar and friend Andrew Dice Clay, saying "he's the kind of friend that once you have him, he's with you."
