What parents need to know

Positive messages

Dice is a mixed bag. He seems to be a loving father and partner, but his humor is sexist and immature. His older material contains some racist elements.


Some heated arguments between Dice and his fiance. He sometimes insults his friends.


Some of Dice's material is highly sexual and misogynistic, though most of it ends up being bleeped.


Almost non-stop foul language, though almost all of it is bleeped.

Not applicable
Drinking, drugs, & smoking

Dice is a famous cigarette smoker, though he appears to have quit. Instead he carries an unlit cigarette as a prop.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this reality show follows comedian Andrew Dice Clay's attempt to revive his career. His material is highly sexual (and, many would say, sexist). His early material, which is shown in clips, contains potentially offensive jokes about women, sex, and relationships. He's also famous for smoking cigarettes ravenously -- though he doesn't appear to smoke currently, he carries an unlit cigarette with him most of this time. His relationship, which is featured prominently in the show, seems loving though tumultuous; he and his fiancé argue heatedly and without mature, healthy resolution. Also, foul language flows freely (though most of it's bleeped).

What's the story?

In DICE UNDISPUTED, VH1 follows the tradition of Hogan Knows Best (or Breaking Bonaduce), with cameras following a once-huge star through his daily family life and the continuing pursuit of fame. Instead of professional wrestling, this series takes its lead from the 1980s comedy circuit, where Andrew "Dice" Clay ruled as a huge star, famous for both his blunt, misogynistic observations about women and sex and his X-rated limericks. In addition to scenes from Dice's home life and his time on the road as he tries to rejuvenate his career, viewers see clips from his late-'80s and early-'90s shows. Whether or not this semi-loveable lug (who, at this point, is almost a caricature of himself) can revive his act enough to reach his goal of filling Giants Stadium remains to be seen.

Is it any good?


Though Dice's once-ubiquitous cigarette is still with him, it now remains unlit. And even though he still affects a tough-guy exterior, Dice's added years and weight -- as well as his loving (and spirited) relationship with his fiancée -- lend him a similar softened appeal to that of reality-TV compatriot Hulk Hogan. Seeing Dice kiss his teenage son good-bye when he leaves on a business trip, viewers realize that the once-envelope-pushing comedian who tells a young female fan about the crude sex acts he wants to perform with her is just a guy with an act trying to make a living.

But of course Dice has completely shed the immaturities that likely led him to write his offensive material in the first place. Watching him and his fiancée fight about trivial topics reveals that he's stuck in a pre-therapeutic age (or else eager to create sparks for his new reality show).

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the appeal of Dice's humor. Who do you think it appeals to most? Why? Do you find him funny? What are the central elements of his jokes and humor? Do you notice a contrast between his comedy routine and his home life? If so, what do you think about that? How is he similar to and different from other "comeback celebrities" who've had reality shows (Danny Bonaduce, Tom Sizemore, etc.)?
