Dice makes himself butt of joke

Andrew Dice Clay tries to change perceptions of him in the show Dice, which is available on Stan.

At the turn of the '90s nobody in comedy was bigger than Andrew Dice Clay. He could sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row he could pull 80,000 people a week to watch him do stand-up; and his belligerent attitude, his rock-star looks and his ferociously offensive routines sent audiences into delirium. Then – poof! – he was gone. Had his fans suddenly developed a distaste for his sexist, homophobic material? Or did they just want something new? Whatever the case, Clay's name became a byword for washed-up male comics whose antediluvian shtick just wasn't funny any more. With this new sitcom Clay aims to change such perceptions.
