Funny stand-up from the most misunderstood comic ever
Andrew "Dice" Clay was probably the most misunderstood and villified comic in the history of modern stand-up comedy.To the nations feminists or left-wingers,Dice was a conveniant scape goat on which to hang their typical villification of white males and their concerns in the post "P.C." world.To many on the right wing he was an evil peddler of sin and filth to the young people of this country.During the quick-burning height of his popularity(roughly between 1988-91),the Diceman filled stadium after stadium,night after night,with his unique blend of hilarious(astronomically profane)observations on sex and gender,and his audience baiting theatrics.Despite the intense media villification,Dice could not be denied his popularity;as a result he was able to begin a(largely unsuccesful)career in films,among other products such as hosting SNL.This concert documentary(preceded by a series of sketches about the creation of the 'Diceman'persona)is a product of the 1990 concert tour;probably his triumphant moment as a stand-up.This is a raucously funny test of both your funny bone and your tolerance level for out-there comic vulgarity-not for nothing was it rated NC-17.Between the sneering but charmingly engaging,chain-smoking Diceman persona and classic bits from Dirty Nursery Rhymes to celebrity impersonations that are often dead on target,this is a must for all fans of Mr. Clay.The problem is that there aren't enough of us out there due to Dice's Hollywood unofficial blacklisting following his failed CBS sitcom.Maybe Dice will oneday get the respect a groundbreaking comic like himself deserves.Rate it at *** out of 4 stars(marred a little by dull opening sketches,but stay for the great standup)
