Dice has released numerous best-selling DVDs (No Apologies and Dice Rules!) and a string of multi-gold and platinum selling CDs (The Day The Laughter Died and Face Down, Ass Up). Dice also starred in several one-hour HBO, pay per view and Showtime stand-up specials including: The Diceman Cometh and Indestructible.
In recent years, Dice’s career has experienced a resurgence. Most notably for his recurring role on the final season of Entourage, when he starred to great critical acclaim alongside Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, Martin Scorsese’s Vinyl, and most recently in the award-winning, blockbuster hit, A Star Is Born. Additionally, in 2014, Simon & Schuster published Dice’s brutally honest, unapologetic and uncensored autobiography “The Filthy Truth”, in which, Dice chronicles his remarkable rise, fall, and triumphant return.
For decades, the secret to Dice's continuing success is that he is more than just a shocking potty mouth. He is a comedic icon, and his acting roles and credits clearly show that he is capable of being funny or serious. Dice is a talented and versatile performer/actor and continues to be a force to reckon with. Audiences crave the excitement of The Diceman live in concert. Tickets range from $49 - $99.
