Drafthouse Gets Clean, Then Dirty With Coulier, Dice Clay

On back-to-back weekends, the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse will host one of the cleanest acts in comedy and one of the dirtiest acts in comedy.

Dave Coulier, of Full House and America’s Funniest People fame, will be performing a “special family-friendly comedy show” at the Drafthouse on Mother’s Day weekend. Tickets to see “Uncle Joey” — on Friday, May 6 and Saturday, May 7 — are $23 apiece.

Just one week after Coulier’s squeaky-clean stand-up act, the only performer ever banned for life from MTV will take the stage.

Andrew Dice Clay, described in promotional materials as the “most controversial and outrageous comic of all time,” was the first comic to sell out Madison Square Garden two nights in a row. Now, having just landed a reoccurring role on HBO’s Entourage, he’s coming to Arlington for two nights of comedy.

Dice will be performing at 7:30 and 9:55 p.m. on Friday, May 13 and Saturday, May 14. Tickets are $40.

    There was an old lady who lived in a shoe. She had so many children… her uterus fell out!

      Thats actually quite funny!

    Might not be so clean if Alanis shows up.


    Can he really claim the title of “most controversial and outrageous comic of all time”? I’m don’t think thats true anymore. Then again, I’ve not seen him perform since sometime in the 90s and that was on TV!

    If Alanis Morissette shows up at that theater, the show could turn a little less PG.

      Nerts, stevis beat me to it…

    Is it true that Dave Coulier shaves his bowling balls? I heard from another comedian that he does and that we should ask him when we see him.

  • The Pikester

    Jack and Jill went up the hill, each witk a buck and a quarter. Jill came down with two-fifty, OOOOOOOOOOOOH!

    Clay is nothing more than a washed up has been trying to hold out until his social security kicks in. If I want that kind of entertainment, I’ll watch Chris Rock, at least he’s funny while being dirty.

  • Vinh An Nguyen

    How old is Andrew Dice Clay? Like 75 or something?

    • The Pikester

      What does his age have to do with it? George Carlin was hysterical until the day he died. Funny is funny. I’m not sure Dice is funny, but if he is your cup of tea then you’d probably enjoy the show regardless of his age.

      • Vinh An Nguyen

        It has to do with my curiousity. As he was never funny to begin with, I doubt he has improved with age, whatever it is.

    Meanwhile, Coulier’s old castmate, Bob Saget, is one of the bluer comics.

  • OldCodger

    Don Rickles excretes comics like Dice Clay in his stool.

    • OldCodger2

      Yeah, don’t think Dice Clay holds up to Lenny Bruce in the controversial category.

  • Brandon C

    Dice always appealed to the Staten Island-ish working class lowbrow tastes which I doubt is going to be the typical member of the commentariat on this site.

    I find him unbelieveably stupid, but a lot of people might not – that said, I wonder if he has any kind of real fan base in this area.

    • Tabby

      Snob! Of course, I totally agree with you. Imagine the crowd that will spill over to P. Brennan’s after the show.
