When Andrew Dice Clay arrived with his politically incorrect sense of humor in the late 1980s (in the middle of the Reagan/Bush era), he was attacked from all sides and attacked back. Andrew Dice Clay One Night With Dice (1989) captured the controversial stand-up comedian at his early prime when it looked like he might be the next big thing and even have a film career.

 

He delivers only 40 minutes of a performance, but that might be more than enough for many, though I was expecting more. Still, it is interesting to look back and see what all the fuss was all about. As the society and its pop culture has become rougher and dumber, he has not become more palatable, but seems less of the outrage people tried to make him out to be at the time. Now, you can see for yourself.

 

 

The anamorphically enhanced 1.33 X 1 image is from an old analog NTSC video source and is very soft, showing its age and then some, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 sound is monophonic and rough, as well as of a slightly lower volume, so be careful of playback and switching. Both show the age of the taping. There are no extras or even menus.

 

 

As noted above, you can order this PAL DVD import exclusively from Umbrella at:
