Although Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay’s popularity waned after his reign as one of the world’s most popular comedians of the 1980s, the veteran performer has never really left the stage, as he’s continued to tour clubs and theaters for years.
And that’s about to become clear as his first stand-up special in 17 years premieres on Showtime on Dec. 31 at 10 pm ET. We’re told that during the one-hour special, Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay: Indestructible, the always controversial figure tackles race relations, his sexual exploits, gay marriage, aging and much more.
“My filth is derived from watching people, whether it be behind a bedroom door, or on a New York City subway,” Clay says. “At the end of the day, it’s comedy, it’s what I do. If I really did just one quarter of what I say on stage, I’d be doing 25 to life.”
As a bonus, Clay has his ex-fiancee, comedian Eleanor Kerrigan bring him onstage and his sons Dillon and Max will perform a song with their band LA Rocks called “Outlaw” to open the night. The show was filmed at the Arcada Theatre in St. Charles, Il, right outside of Chicago.
Clay will also be seen in Woody Allen’s upcoming film alongside Louis C.K., Alec Baldwin and Cate Blanchett. Check out Showtime’s page for the complete schedule of Indestructible airings.
