The Diceman Cometh Down Under Tour

ONE WORLD ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS

Andrew Dice Clay

The Diceman Cometh Down Under Tour

Controversial and outrageous – American comic Andrew Dice Clay heads to New Zealand for the first time ever, performing one show only in Auckland.

A comic icon, his rise to fame was meteoric, selling out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row, appearing in numerous feature films including The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, a string of multi-gold and platinum selling CDs and DVDs (Day The Laughter Died; Filth & Face Down, Ass Up and No Apologies andDice Rules), starring in HBO specials (The Dice Man Cometh) and profiled everywhere from Entertainment Tonight to Nightline.


New Zealand fans get to experience Andrew Dice Clay live and in person as he brings his shocking and uproariously funny comedy Andrew Dice Clay: The Diceman Cometh Down Under to Auckland’s Aotea Centre on Tuesday 28 October.

To this day, Clay remains the only performer banned for life from MTV. When he released his debut album, DICE, the parental advisory label simply read "Warning: This album is offensive."

Despite the media backlash, Clay's star rose at a phenomenal rate as he played hundreds of sports arenas from coast to coast across the USA throughout the 90s. As he proudly boasted, “I’ve done so many concerts tours that I can’t even remember their names”. And in 1992, he performed in front of the largest audience ever by a comedian when he shared the stage with Guns ‘N’ Roses at the Rose Bowl.

Over the last few years, Clay’s been enjoying a resurgence; he had a critically acclaimed role on the final season of HBO’s Entourage and last year, he starred alongside Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. Most recently, the comedian’s first stand-up special in 17 years aired on Showtime titled Andrew Dice Clay: INDESTRUCTIBLE and proved the DiceMan is back in action.

And if that is not enough, Clay proudly admits he was thrown off Celebrity Apprentice after just one appearance on the show.

Andrew Dice Clay ‘The Diceman Cometh Down Under’ is at ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre in Auckland onTuesday 28 October. Tickets are on sale from Monday 18 August through Ticketmaster 0800 111 999www.ticketmaster.co.nz
