The “Diceman” Takes Over Manhattan

By Jason Gonzalez

He’s coming home folks

Brooklyn’s own, Andrew “Dice” Clay is bringing his brand of uncensored and unapologetic satire to the ‘Big Apple’ this summer. The 60-year-old controversial funnyman of the 1980’s will be headlining at the Gramercy Theatre on Wednesday, July 11.

Clay’s indelible impact to the art is truly remarkable. 28 years ago the Sheepshead Bay native became the first comedian to ever sell out Madison Square Garden. As if that wasn’t enough of an accomplishment, Clay would do it again for a second consecutive night. Love him or hate him, but the offensive persona known as the “Diceman” resonated with the masses.

Think about it, how outlandish do you have to be to get banned for life by MTV?

Just recently, Clay’s career has experienced resurgence. Most notably was his television series ‘Dice’ which aired on Showtime for two seasons. Clay was also featured on the final season of the HBO hit series ‘Entourage’ as well as Martin Scorsese’s ‘Vinyl’ which was aired on the same network. Clay was also on ‘The Celebrity Apprentice. Unfortunately his run on the show was the polar opposite of his career in comedy, short lived. He proudly boasts about being the first celebrity to be “fired” from the show.

Tickets are still available for this limited engagement [one night only], and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com or at the Gramercy Theatre box office. Ticket prices range from $68.00$98.00 before fees. If you have any additional questions feel free to contact the Theatre at (212) 614-6932.
