Brooklyn-born comedian Andrew Dice Clay added a new wrinkle to his oversized persona Thursday on Brooklyn Paper Radio when he doled out sage advice to hosts Gersh Kuntzman and me on the right way to raise kids.
“No, you should not take your 9-year-old son to my show,” Dice admonished me when I asked if it was a good thing to do.
The reason I shouldn’t? Not because of the colorful language.
“He won’t get it,” he said of my very intelligent son.
And that’s just the tip of the Diceberg that was out half-hour interview with the heavy weight king of comedy, who’ll be coming back to Brooklyn on July 30 for his performance at the new Coney Island Amphitheater.
And if history is a barometer it’s sure to be sold out, thanks to Clay’s popularity in his hometown.
“When I played the Cyclones stadium it was so cold I miserable out, I didn’t want to show up,” he said of his last Brooklyn Performance at MCU Park in 2011. “It was raining and like 30 degrees, but people filled the place. That’s Brooklyn.”
It’s not the first time Dice has chatted with The Paper, which, the record shows, launched his career.
Clay shot to fame shortly after the scrappy little tabloid wrote about the antics of one Andrew Clay Silverstein before anybody else back in 1979.
The Dice interview went down as “Iron Man” James Hook used his tool of the trade to straighten out the collars of our hosts’ shirts — yet another Brooklyn Paper Radio first.
Of course the show was not without controversy, as Kuntzman walked out in the middle of the interview to attend a Paul Simon concert in Queens, a neighboring borough.
“Where did he go?” Dice asked.
So take a listen and enjoy the latest edition of Brooklyn Paper Radio.
