An outrageously raw, painfully funny memoir recounting the iconic comedian’s meteoric rise, spectacular fall from grace, and triumphant return. In this unapologetic and uncensored autobiography, Andrew Dice Clay, one of the most popular and most infamous comics of all time, is ready to set the record straight. He was the eighties’ answer to Lenny Bruce, with material that stretched the boundaries of decency and good taste to their breaking point and in turn became the most vilified stand-up of all time. From humble beginnings at smalltime gigs in Brooklyn, Andrew Dice Clay roared to fame, becoming the only comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row, but his edgy material quickly caught up to him. His billboards were defaced; the premiere of his film The Adventures of Ford Fairlane was cancelled; the cast members of Saturday Night Live threatened to walk off when he guest-hosted the program; and he was famously banned for life from MTV. For almost twenty years he stayed out of the spotlight, but like a real life Rocky, Dice would not stay down. Spurred by a role written for him by the creator of Entourage and one of his biggest fans, Dice is back in the spotlight and selling out theaters as well as starring in Woody Allen’s new film Blue Jasmine. The Filthy Truth is filled with Dice’s no-holds-barred humor and blistering commentary as well as plenty of revealing stories, from his early days when the mob wanted to run his career to his friendships with Rodney Dangerfield, Mickey Rourke, and Sylvester Stallone. This knockout punch from the self-professed “Undisputed Heavyweight King of Comedy” is a must-read for fans.
