Dice is an American comedy television series created by Scot Armstrong. The series stars Andrew Dice Clay as himself. On March 20, 2015, Showtime ordered a six-episode first season.[1] The series premiered on Showtime on April 10, 2016.[2] On September 22, 2016, Showtime renewed Dice for a seven-episode second season, which premiered on August 20, 2017.[3][4] On January 30, 2018, it was announced that the series had been cancelled after two seasons.[5]

Premise[edit]

Dice follows "the stops and starts of Andrew Dice Clay’s career resurgence in his transplanted home base of Las Vegas. Mired in Sin City’s suburbs, Clay tries to live his life while still trapped in the skin of his infamous character. You remember: the adult nursery rhymes, the insults, the ban from MTV, the deliberate controversy. He works to pay back his gambling debts, manage his sons’ heavy metal band and fend off pumped-up fans — all while sporting his trademark black leather jacket and fingerless gloves, poised for a comeback."[2]
