"Dice Received a movie offer that will film through the original dates, which forced the rescheduling of the shows." Daniel McRitchie-Laugh It Up Comedy Club


The Andrew Dice Clay shows that were scheduled for August have been moved up a month to July instead.

According to Daniel McRitchie, owner of Laugh It Up Comedy Club, there's a good reason for the rescheduled shows. McRitchie says, "Dice Received a movie offer that will film through the original dates, which forced the rescheduling of the shows." Hearing this was great news to fans like myself! What will the next movie be?

Dice's Career Comeback

The Dice Man came to prominence in the late 80s and in 1990 he would become the first comedian to sell out two consecutive nights at Madison Square Garden. He also was the star of the great film The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. Dice started a career comeback and garnered critically acclaimed supporting roles starting with his role as Augie in Woody Allen's 2013 comedy-drama Blue Jasmine. He also had a television series called Dice in 2016 that ran for two seasons on Showtime and he starred in Bradley Cooper's 2018 directorial debut A Star is Born playing the role of Lorenzo (father of Lady Gaga's character Ally).
