Andrew Dice Clay

If it’s sophisticated supper club entertainment you were after, HBF Stadium was not the place to be tonight.

Dice – and his support act, New York comic Eleanor Kerrigan – is crass, vulgar, racist, sexist, over the top and wilfully offensive. Most importantly, they’re both fucking hilariously funny!

Dice came up in the ‘80s, of course – pre-political correctness – and that’s the basis of his comedy. It’ll offend many, but frankly Kerrigan gave as good from a female perspective, and nobody was likely to be there who didn’t want to be.

HBF Stadium is re-imagined as a giant comedy club – tent canopies, tables of eight, bar food and table service. There’s zero stage set or ‘show’, but Dice keeps the thousand-strong crowd transfixed and laughing non-stop.

The difference in dating from the ‘80s to now is explored (‘they don’t think you love ‘em if you don’t cum all over ‘em on the first date’), as is bedazzled pussies, changing wedding vows (from ‘til death do us part’ to ‘til I can’t fuckin’ stand you any more’), and much more besides, as well as referencing his Ford Fairlane movie character here and there.

In between the potentially offensive hilarity, Dice drops a few points of wisdom – making excellent points about not only putting your electronic devices down more, but also about not being so judgemental about what you see online and on Facebook.

And in case anyone was tempted to take offence at anything either comic said tonight, the simple fact is that the humour – crass though it is – is cathartic and cartoonish. And bloody funny.
