The Day the Laughter Died is a comedy double album by comedian Andrew Dice Clay, which was released in 1990. It was produced by record producer, Rick Rubin. Rubin's concept was to record an unadvertised performance in a small club, with a small crowd, many of which would not necessarily be fans of Clay's act. Clay chose a New York club, owned by comedian, Rodney Dangerfield, Dangerfield's, as well as to record during the holiday season. A sequel, The Day the Laughter Died, Part II was released in 1993.

The album is largely improvisational, with Clay interacting with the audience over the course of over an hour and a half. The topics run through his usual gamut of sex, relationships between men and women, masculinity, religion and popular culture. However more so than his prior albums, the jokes are delivered intentionally flat and raw as to offend and alienate the audience turning the performance into the joke itself.[2] Clay's performance results in several members of the audience leaving the show early, some insulting him as they leave.
