Andrew Dice Clay Semi-Autobiographical Comedy Gets Showtime Series Order

As one of the seminal comedians of the mid 1980’s to well into the mid 90’s with a crisp and even piercingly truthful view of capitalist males doing what they do. Some may state this as sexism, domination, or just plain rude, to you I’d have to say that you should just forget about it. In my humblist of opinions; He is in the company of greats as Eddie Murphy (http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/03/eddie-murphy-just-performed-stand-up-comedy-for-the-first-time-in-25-years/ ), Rodney Dangerfield ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodney_Dangerfield ) , and Richard Pryor ( http://www.richardpryor.com/ ) to Sam Kinison (http://www.nytimes.com/1992/04/12/us/sam-kinison-38-comedian-dies-wife-injured-in-head-on-collision.html). Good luck ‘Dice Man’ on your Semi-Autobiographical series. I already know what his response would be like:Phfttt. Fuck you Johnson. Who the fuck are you ta wish me luck. Fuckin zippah head. Is it humor, blattent vulgarity, or clever branding of a comedic mastermind. You tell me.
