Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay: ‘I don't mind a little controversy,’ doesn’t worry about being politically correct

In "The Filthy Truth," Andrew "Dice" Clay chronicles his incredible rise, fall and triumphant return. Born in Brooklyn, Andrew Clay Silverstein started out in comedy clubs eventually becoming the first comedian to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. But Dice's meteoric rise brought on an angry backlash from the media. In the mid-‘90s, reeling from a bitter divorce, Clay put his career on the back burner to concentrate on raising his two sons. Now, the original rock and roll comic is back, winning raves for his roles in "Entourage," and "Blue Jasmine." He talked to FOX411 about his career.

FOX411: You were the biggest stand-up in the ‘90s. Andrew Dice Clay: Nobody has ever done to this day the kind of concert performing I've done. I did over 300 arena shows which is like over 12 million tickets sold and that went on from '89 to '94.
