On the heels of his role in Woody Allen’s newest film, Blue Jasmine – out this Friday, July 26 – iconic comedian Andrew Dice Clay has announced his plans to write a memoir titled The Filthy Truth, a tome that will cover the comedian’s “remarkable rise, spectacular fall, and triumphant return as a comedian and actor,” according to a statement released this morning. “From humble beginnings at smalltime gigs in Brooklyn to performing in front of stadium-sized crowds, Andrew Dice Clay roared to fame in the 1980s, becoming the only comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. But his edgy material came at a price; he was forced into exile.”

The book, set for release in May of next year, will be written with celebrated biographer David Ritz, known for his work with Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye and many others. “I am completely thrilled to be working with the brilliant David Ritz…I can guarantee to all that this will be one unbelievable book,” says Clay.

The Filthy Truth will be published by Touchstone, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. In addition to Blue Jasmine, Clay was recently seen in his first stand-up comedy special in 15 years, Indestructible, which premiered on Showtime this past December.
