Andrew Dice Clay Net Worth: He Is Actor In "A Star Is Born"!

Clay is a divisive personality due to the offensive nature of his insult comedy. In 1990, he made history by being the first comic to sell out two consecutive nights at Madison Square Garden.

After being banned from MTV in 1989 for his raunchy renditions of nursery rhymes during the VMAs, Andrew was eventually allowed back on the network in 2011.

He attended James Madison High School as a student and made ends meet by playing drums at Catskills area weddings and bar mitzvahs.

20th Century Fox offered Clay a movie deal the day after he performed at a Big Brother Association event in 1988. In 2004, he starred in Rodney Dangerfield's HBO show "Nothing Goes Right."

In 1989, he played a 3-minute set at the MTV Video Music Awards, which led to MTV banning him. In 1990, he published his second album, "The Day the Laughter Died," which reached #39 on the "Billboard" 200 lists.

In 1990, Clay was the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden twice in a row. In May of that year, he hosted "Saturday Night Live," causing Nora Dunn and Sinead O'Connor to refuse to participate.

Clay was married to Valerie Vasquez from 2010 to 2014 and engaged to comedian Eleanor Kerrigan. In 2017, Dice had a stent inserted in his heart after being hospitalized for tiredness and dehydration and having a partially clogged artery found.
