Publisher's Summary

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.

The Diceman Returns!

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!

Dice getting laid

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Hearing about Dice's sexual history get boring pretty fast. The story of his career sounds interesting but, he tells it in a very juvenile way. I made it a few hours before I completely lost interest.

Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Dice Clay again?

Probably not.

How could the performance have been better?

Some guy doing a poor Dice impersonation.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

DICE NEEDED TO TELL HIS OWN STORY

Would you try another book from Andrew Dice Clay and/or Bruce Rubenstein?

Cant listen to Bruce Rubenstein boring, Dice has a way to deliver stories the Rubenstein lacks

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Bruce Rubenstein?

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

Great Story

Great story, I only wish that it was read by Dice himself. It would have been great to hear his voice reading.

Great, but I felt like there's more to Dice

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's very entertaining. And inspiring.

Would you be willing to try another book from Andrew Dice Clay? Why or why not?

Absolutely.

What about Bruce Rubenstein’s performance did you like?

Perfect. I just wish it was Dice himself.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

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.

Super boring get go

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.
