Andrew Dice Clay has been making waves in the stand-up comedy world since 1978. He has starred in numerous feature films, appeared in several HBO specials, and released bestselling DVDs and a string of multi-gold and platinum-selling CDs. David Ritz is the only four-time winner of the Gleason Music Book Award.
"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
