Andrew Dice Clay

He calls himself the Rocky of Comedy, and now this heavyweight king of comedy is coming out of retirement to train for the greatest career move yet! The show is crafted around the highs and lows of Dice's personal and professional life as he fights to get back on top. It's an exciting, exhausting process that we see firsthand - training in the gym, trying out new material at local clubs, and struggling to get his management behind him.

Andrew Dice Clay made a career out of being the most outrageous comic of his time. Before Chappelle, before South Park, Dice was shocking audiences - breaking the rules with a never-before-seen style of hardcore comedy. His rise to fame was meteoric - with sold-out arenas, platinum albums, and starring roles in films and TV specials. His fall was just as epic- blackballed by the industry and becoming the man to hate by every PC group in the country.

Dice is a new take on celebreality, combining a real Rocky story with an original comic voice. Dice's mission to get back in the game is sometimes exhilarating, sometimes a train wreck, always honest. And you've just got to watch.
