Andrew Dice Clay was once the most successful stand-up comedian in the country, but his divisive humor (regularly described as racist, sexist, homophobic, and more) soon found him to be among the most controversial as well. For a long time, it seemed the book had been closed on his career, but Clay has gradually built himself back up in a surprising comeback, appearing as himself on “Entourage” and scoring a prominent supporting role in “Blue Jasmine.” His new half-hour comedy series, “Dice,” is the culmination of that comeback and will be premiering its six-episode first season on Showtime this spring.
Clay stars as himself in the semi-autobiographical series that very much mirrors his own life’s highs and lows. Once on top, the struggling comedian must work to resurrect his career, pay his gambling debts, manage his sons’ rock band, fend off old fans and keep his family afloat. “Dice” also stars Kevin Corrigan with guest stars Natasha Leggero, Lorraine Bracco, Adrien Brody, Michael Rapaport, Wayne Newton, Criss Angel and Rita Rudner.
