Andrew Dice Clay Signs With Gersh (Exclusive)
The comic’s dramatic renaissance continues with a role in HBO’s upcoming Martin Scorsese-Mick Jagger pilot.
Continuing his career resurgence, Andrew Dice Clay has signed with Gersh for U.S. representation, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
The stand-up comic earned critical admiration last year for his turn as Cate Blanchett’s blue-collar brother-in-law in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. He’ll continue to work with high-profile talent as a cast member in HBO’s untitled rock ‘n’ roll drama pilot, from producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and The Wolf of Wall Street’s Terence Winter and starring Bobby Cannavale. Clay will play “obnoxious, cocaine-addled” radio station executive Frank “Buck” Rogers in the 1970s New York City-set drama. Clay’s other television roles include a guest spot on NBC’s freshman drama The Blacklist and a recurring arc as a fictionalized version of himself on the final season of HBO’s Entourage.
As a comedian, Clay continues to tour the country while maintaining a residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. In 2012 he filmed his first stand-up special in 17 years, Showtime’s Andrew Dice Clay: Indestructible. And he will publish his first memoir, The Filthy Truth, via Touchstone/Simon & Schuster on November 11.
Clay continues to be repped by manager Bruce Rubenstein and attorney Karl Austen at Jackoway Tyerman.
