The Diceman Dices Jackie!
After another noticeable absence, this time
for over a year, Shock Comic, Andrew Dice Clay, has come back into the
Stern show fold. "The Diceman is back. He
was avoiding me but he came back," Howard said. "Is this Andrew Clay or Andrew "Dice" Clay",
he added sarcastically. "It's Andrew Dice
Clay. Don't play Howard, you know me," Dice snapped back.
It seems Dice's troubles started when he first became involved with CBS
and his short-lived comedy, "Bless This House". In order to get
the CBS deal, he dropped his "Dice" persona and distanced himself
from things like Howard's show. As to what happened with that show, Dice
explained that CBS promised to put the "edge" back in his character,
but they never followed through. This, Dice says, was a contributing factor
to the show's cancellation.
Being the King Of All Instigators, Howard said to Dice, "I
heard you were mad at Jackie The Joke Man." "I'm a little mad.
He's better as a puppet," Dice told Howard. He then went
on to explain that he was pissed at Jackie over a comment he made to Howard
one day on the air about Dice running back to Howard now that his TV show's
been canceled. "What did I ever do to him?"
Dice wondered aloud. "I don't run to Howard
for nothing, Jackie. You're his pity case, not me. The day Howard decides
to quit radio is the day you're out of business, so shut your mouth!,"
Dice ranted. Not be the quiet type in a situation like this, Jackie tossed
out one-liners which made Dice angrier and angrier. "You
want to come up against the best comic ever? You want to open your mouth
on this radio. I'll bury you. Don't ever come up against me, I am the best...,"
Dice raved. To which Jackie replied in frustration, "Oh
The original purpose of the call was to plug
Dice's up-coming HBO special entitled, "Assume The Position"
and to offer tickets to last night's (3/12) taping. But by this time, Dice
was yelling and screaming at Jackie. He even promised to rag on him on
stage during the taping of the special. "You
want the fans to start calling you Jackie the Jerk Off? I can make that
happen...," Dice claimed. Not taking him too seriously,
Jackie started breaking Dice's balls again about his weight and thinning
hair. This infuriated him immensely. "...Go
ahead. Go have a drink, maybe it will clear your mind. Go ahead, smoke
your pot. Dope addict. Drunk. That's what I think. That's my opinion of
you... Tonight you pay, tonight you get disciplined. Assume the position.
Spread 'em, spread 'em... I'm the King. I'm the King!,"
Dice vented as he hung up.
Dice never did rag on Jackie during that special which aired on HBO
