  1. CNN: Andrew Dice Clay is back with 'No Apologies'
    Los Angeles (CNN) - Andrew Dice Clay, one of the hottest and most controversial comedians two decades ago, sits on his front porch late at night, plotting his comeback.

    "I was almost like self-exiled from the business, you know, other than going out and making a living for myself, I wasn't really making any career moves," Clay says, talking with fellow comedian Tom Green. "I was bringing up my family."

    Green, who was on "Celebrity Apprentice" with "Diceman" in 2009, had his camera rolling when Clay invited CNN to hang with him a recent Friday night -- just days before his first television comedy special in 17 years airs on Showtime.

  2. Andrew Dice Clay On 'Indestructible,' His Comeback And Why He Hates Internet Porn
    This New Years Eve, audiences will have the opportunity to see the first new Andrew Dice Clay stand-up special in 17 years. During his heyday in the 1980s, the Brooklyn-bred comedian was one of the most popular and divisive figures in pop culture, but Clay had been largely out of the public eye since the '90s after his stand-up career faded and his film career fizzled. But in 2010, he played a thinly-concealed version of himself in an arc on the final season of "Entourage" to much acclaim. Surprising many, his next big job came in the form of a dramatic role in the currently untitled Woody Allen film.

    We spoke to Clay about how he prepared for his new special, how he balances his family life and career and why he really, really hates Internet porn. "Indestructible" airs on Showtime on Monday, Dec. 31 at 10 p.m. EST.

    On New Year’s Eve, Showtime will air the first comedy special by Andrew Dice Clay in 17 years. Dice, who was born Andrew Clay Silverstein in 1957, was once one of the most successful stand-up comedians in the country. As is noted in nearly every piece about him (and near the top of his Wikipedia page), he sold out two shows at Madison Square Garden in 1990, the only comedian ever to do so.
