Pretty In Pink. Whatever Happened To...Andrew Dice Clay

Andrew Dice Clay - "Dice-man"
Andrew Dice Clay played the part of the bouncer at CATS in Pretty In Pink.

The smooth talking, cigarette smoking "Dice-man" gives Duckie some words of advice, while at the same time refusing him entry to the club.

"Love's a bitch, Duck. Love's a bitch."

A controversial figure, Clay is well known for his politically incorrect humour, and for many years balanced his stand-up comedy and acting performances. TV specials and sell out shows made Clay was a huge star in the 80s and 90s, but his career petered out and family and money troubles kicked in.

The last few years have seen a resurgence in a career that looked to have faltered.  He returned to the public eye along beside Donald Trump in Celebrity Apprentice. More recently he starred in the TV show Entourage, which then led to an acclaimed performance in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.  Clay continues to act and perform stand-up.
