PASADENA, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The self-titled "Rocky of
Comedy," Andrew Dice Clay, is coming out of retirement and he's pulling out
all stops to do it with a multi-media blitz -- writing a book, cutting a
record, producing his own Sirius radio show and playing to the types of
crowds that made him a legend. In the VH1 series "Dice Undisputed" viewers
will get an intimate and often hilarious look into the highs and lows of
this heavyweight king of laugh's personal and professional life as he
fights to get back on top. "Dice Undisputed" premieres Sunday, March 4 at
10:30 PM*. VH1 has picked up 7 episodes of this half-hour series.
Dice's controversial macho image often collides with his real family
life as the man behind all the limericks and leather tries to find a
balance between being a devoted father of two teenage sons (11 and 16),
dealing with a broken marriage, juggling a relationship with his strong
willed ex-wrestler fiancee Eleanor and facing the challenges of middle age.
Also thrown into the fray is his posse of friends and road crew, otherwise
known as his "dysfunctional, middle-aged entourage," including "Wheels,"
his ever-dieting buddy; Todd, his witless road manager; "Happy Face," his
stone-faced ninja- trained bodyguard; and Uncle Lee, his doting mentor who
spouts sage advice at the drop of a hat. While this rag-tag group of
buddies often offers unwanted advice, their presence gives Dice an endless
supply of comedic rants for his stand-up.
