Diceman in new game with Allen film
LOS ANGELES – Andrew Dice Clay is on a roll. Or as the comedian sees it, enjoying a resurgence.
He’s in Woody Allen’s latest movie, “Blue Jasmine”; will judge a new syndicated TV talent show and see his autobiography published next spring, and is collaborating on a documentary about his life and career with “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin.
Add to that his guest shot on “Entourage” in its final season in 2011 and last December’s Showtime standup special, “Andrew Dice Clay: Indestructible,” and it sounds like a comeback for Clay, 55, after a fallow period that included a brief 2009 stint on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
He looks at it otherwise.
“I’ve always done things a little differently,” said Clay, who became both popular and polarizing in the 1980s with his profane, raw standup routines, especially those with women as the topic.
