An outrageously raw, painfully funny memoir recounting the iconic comedian’s meteoric rise, spectacular fall, and triumphant return.
In this unapologetic and uncensored autobiography, Andrew Dice Clay 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 comic of all time.
From humble beginnings 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; some of 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 a critically acclaimed starring role in Woody Allen’s film Blue Jasmine, Dice is back in the spotlight and selling out theaters.
Filled with no-holds-barred humor as well as plenty of never-before-shared stories from his comedic career as well as his friendships with Howard Stern, Sam Kinison, Mickey Rourke, Sylvester Stallone, Slash, and many others, The Filthy Truth delivers a knockout punch.

I still remember my bandmated and I watching his first special, back in '88. Suffice it to say, our banter with the crowd took on a certain "Dice-like" quality. He was such a game changer.
I've always loved him. It's great to hear his story, from him. Rumours, started by the media, were all we heard, for years. That was a disservice to the Man. He deserved so much more respect.
THIS, is the way you want to hear about the Diceman!
The man with a plan - ups downs - sideways - you guys are going to be so crookedly funny they will have to screw you in the ground when you Die. - Rock on Andrew - yes we don't know each other but you have lived the lives of 10 men ....J Man Long Island New York
Cant listen to Bruce Rubenstein boring, Dice has a way to deliver stories the Rubenstein lacks
Dice needed to tell his story would have made the book a million times better. Dice's delivery, timing, and enthusiasm would have gave this book the justice it deserves. Heard Dice tell some of the stories in the book on Howard Stern and I was amazed how it drew me in unlike the book and Bruce
Yes, it's very entertaining. And inspiring.
Perfect. I just wish it was Dice himself.
Laughed plenty. Wish there were more moments that showed his vulnerable side. He had a few, but I feel like they were glossed over and I didn't get to see the real Diceman. Still, I was not disappointed.
I'm a huge dice fan however the beginning of his book here is so boring. Since my time is valuable, respectively, I had to pass on this one and run back and grab the Chris Farley book instead.
More behind the scenes stories. Maybe about how he comes up with the material. His interactions with celebrities would have been a good addition also. He talks about being good friends with Howard Stern, yet he doesn't go into much detail.
Dice's character is very well known. The voice goes into the persona. Not hearing Dice's story in Dice's voice was also a disappointment.
It seemed like the 1st 5 hours was about his conquests. I'm sure there were plenty. But honestly they weren't entertaining in the least.
