The Filthy Truth
By

Rating
In this unapologetic and uncensored autobiography, Andrew Dice Clay, is ready to set the record straight. He was the eighties' answer to Lenny Bruce, with material that stretched the boundaries of decency and good taste to their breaking point and in turn became the most vilified stand-up of all time. From humble beginnings at small-time gigs in Brooklyn, Andrew Dice Clay roared to fame, becoming the only comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row, but his edgy material quickly caught up to him. His billboards were defaced; the premiere of his film The Adventures of Ford Fairlanewas cancelled; the cast members of Saturday Night Livethreatened to walk off when he guest-hosted the program; and he was famously banned for life from MTV. For almost twenty years he stayed out of the spotlight, but Dice would not stay down. Spurred by a role written for him by the creator of Entourageand one of his biggest fans, Dice is back in the spotlight and selling out theatres as well as starring in Woody Allen's new film Blue Jasmine. The Filthy Truthis filled with Dice's no-holds-barred humour and blistering commentary as well as plenty of revealing stories, from his early days when the mob wanted to run his career to his friendships with Rodney Dangerfield, Mickey Rourke, and Sylvester Stallone.

Reviews

"As low-down and dirty as ever." * Maxim * "Dice is a absolute gentleman behind the scenes and in real life.. But a total BEAST on stage... 100% Original. Now buy his book!" -- Ice-T "Andrew is one of the great comedians of our time. His best material is funny for a thousand reasons. I can't remember laughing harder at anyone more than him." -- Rick Rubin "This guy Dice provokes everybody. He's made a career out of his foul mouth and politically incorrect humor. Why would anyone want to live that way?" -- Eminem "I remember where I was when Dice appeared on the Rodney Dangerfield special in 1988 (my parents living room). I immediately knew we were entering a new age of comedy. Like Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor before him, Dice was so stunningly shocking you couldn't look away. I swore that one day I would work with this guy. It took 20 years, but when he came onto the Entourage set it was like I was a kid again watching as a fan. He's a such a force and a presence that I think the revival that he is experiencing right now will be even more spectacular than his first time around." -- Doug Ellin, creator of the HBO television series Entourage "My friend Andrew Silverstein is a great comic who invented a character, 'Andrew Dice Clay,' who intends to offend, expose, and mock the common arrogance and stupidity of the ultra-macho male dinosaur, allowing us to laugh the whole archetype to scorn." -- Roseanne Barr "No one did it bigger, louder, or ruder. And definitely no one did it funnier than Andrew Dice Clay." -- Nikki Sixx "After working with Andrew on Blue Jasmine he will always appear to me as an incredibly talented movie actor. I encourage anyone to read this book to discover the path that led him there." -- Alec Baldwin "I've known Dice since he was Andrew Silverstein and his nursery rhymes were actual nursery rhymes. I've always thought his life would be a page turner. I wasn't wrong. Anybody who is a fan of comedy owes it to themselves to know Dice's whole story. The Filthy Truth is he's a really great guy and a hell of a storyteller." -- Arsenio Hall "In the midst of reading this book I remembered what I really, really liked about Andrew Dice Clay--he said what you thought and would never say out loud; very honest and bitingly funny. The only thing I truly didn't know was what a fine actor he is (but that's not in the book, I'm just commenting). I loved the book because it's him. It's SO him." -- Whoopi Goldberg
