Andrew Dice Clay
He dresses like he just stepped out of the movie Grease, but he’s the only comedian known as the undisputed heavyweight comedy king. Andrew Dice Clay, also known as the Diceman, will be serving up his unique style of outrageous, in-your-face comedy during a limited engagement at Sugarcane Live!, a new venue at SUSHISAMBA within The Shoppes at The Palazzo.
Fresh off appearances on the HBO comedy showcase Down and Dirty and a recent reject of Celebrity Apprentice, Clay has hit the comedy club circuit with his “take no prisoners” act, and Vegas is next on his list. And just as he refused to ice cupcakes for Donald Trump, Clay refuses to be anything but bluntly honest – although to most audience members, his version of honest is our version of shocking, macho, and politically incorrect. Dropping f-bombs like they’re going out of style, Clay isn’t for the faint of heart, but his sharp-witted barbs will you have laughing hysterically as he says all the things most people wouldn’t dare.
From the moment his first HBO special, The Diceman Cometh, hit airwaves in 1989, Clay experienced a meteoric rise to fame marked with sold-out arenas, platinum albums, and starring roles in films and TV specials. His performances were – and still are – usually begun by the comedian smoking a cigarette on stage for about a minute before launching into an act so funny and offensive that he was eventually blackballed in Hollywood and banned from MTV. Nevertheless, Dice found a loyal following, and not even the outrage of PC groups could prevent his albums from enjoying incredible sales.
Still, by the late 90s, the bad press caught up with Dice and his career came to a dead stop. After retiring to Florida to raise a family, Clay resurfaced in the mid-90s with a starring role in the CBS sitcom Bless This House. Clay explained to media at the time that his former ‘Dice’ antics were just an act. The sitcom failed to garner viewers, but Dice won another role in the UPN show Hitz in 1997 before returning to his comedy career in 2000.
Ever since then, the Diceman has been making a slow comeback, and his jokes are just as nasty and foul-mouthed as ever – except now, his act features less material about women, new material about terrorists, and the classic nursery rhymes-turned-dirty that made his early career such a success. No one is safe from Clay’s jabs, but everyone in the audience will have a good laugh – many of them.
