Roll with the Dice

Don’t call it a comeback -- at least, not to his face. Instead, comedian Andrew Dice Clay refers to 2013 as his year of resurgence, due largely to an uncharacteristically sympathetic role in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine and the release of Andrew Dice Clay: Indestructible, his first stand-up special in almost two decades.

Aside from appearances on The Apprentice and Entourage, his trademark leather look and sunglasses, once synonymous with the late ‘80s and 1990s, have been out of the spotlight, but they return, Diceman in tow, to Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino this weekend.

Expect a set tackling the taboo, peppered with choice three- and four-letter words in a thick Brooklyn accent -- and likely a dirty nursery rhyme or two. For old time’s sake.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Saturday, November 30, at Ovations Live Showroom, 5040 Wild Horse Pass Boulevard in Chandler. Tickets are $30 to $99. Visit or call 1-800-946-4452.

Sat., Nov. 30, 8 p.m., 2013
