Andrew Clay Silverstein was born on 29 September 1957, in Brooklyn, New York City USA, into a Jewish family, and is an actor, comedian, screenwriter and TV producer His comedy has the reputation of being insulting and rude, but still he has thousands of fans in the United States and all around the world. As an actor he is usually recognized thanks to his appearance in the movie called “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane” directed by Renny Harlin, in which Andrew played the main role. The fact that he was the only one to sell out two night shows in a row at Madison Square Garden also added a huge amount of money to Andrew Dice’s net worth.
So just how rich is Andrew Dice? Sources have estimated that Andrew’s net worth is over $1 million, earned from his career in the entertainment industry spanning over 30 years.
Andrew Dice Net Worth $1 Million
Since his early years, Andrew was interested in both comedy and music, as a five year-old child he was already entertaining family and friends in his family house, including learning how to play the drums and even then thinking about associating his future career with playing in a band; finally he decided to build his net worth as a comedian. In 1980 Andrew left his hometown and moved to Los Angeles to start building up his own net worth and to gain more recognition. There he had a chance to appear in many different comedy shows thanks to Mitzi Shore, the owner of “Comedy Store” in LA. Andrew already had some experience as a comedian since he had been working in a local comedy club called Pips for the previous two years. After working in the Comedy Store, he began appearing in American sitcom comedies.
During his career Andrew Dice’s net worth has risen because of his roles in many movies and TV shows. He played Tony Baroni from “Night patrol”, Curt from “Private Resort”, Dice from “Making the Grade”, Ford Fairlane from “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane” and Ed Molloy from “Brainsmasher… A Love Story”. He also was an executive producer of “Andrew Dice Clay: No Apologies”.
However, Andrew’s career has not been without controversy; because of his sometimes lewd language, womens’ rights groups oppose him, and he has been banned from several TV and radio shows, including the MTV Awards and “Saturday Night Live”, but there are currently (2015) no bans in place.
Talking about his personal life, it has been equally interesting: Andrew’s first marriage didn’t last long – he divorced from his wife Kathy Swanson in 1986 after two years of living together. His next relationship was a little bit more successful – he lived for 10 years with Kathleen “Trini” Monica until 2002, and the couple has two sons, of whom Maxwell Lee followed his father and also has become a step-up comedian. After the break up Andrew married his third wife, Valeria Vasquez, in February 2010, but the couple divorced after one month.
His first wife is Kathleen Swanson, whom he wed in 1984 and divorced in 1986. He called his two years of matrimony a "horror show". His second wife was Kathleen Monica -- he calls her Trini, and he was married to her between 1992 and 2002. The two met while he was on location filming the Chicago episodes of Crime Story (1986)--she was his waitress in a restaurant where he ate regularly. He has two sons with her--Max Silverstein, who was born in 1990 and, Dillon Scott Silverstein, who was born in 1994. His first son is named after the character he played on "Crime Story", Max Goldman.

Often wears a black leather jacket. For his on-stage act, his jacket is usually covered in gold studs, with the word 'Dice' spelled out on across his back.
Begins all of his comedy acts with about a minute of just standing on stage, smoking a cigarette, before starting into his material.
His comedy acts often include his catch phrases "Dat's what I think", "Unbelievable", and (usually to puctuate one of his infamous dirty nursery rhymes) a sharp "Ooh!".
People are taking the act too seriously. The [Diceman] character is a macho moron. It's juvenile comedy. I just like to make people laugh.
[on why he was not a guest on Late Night with David Letterman (1982)] "Because I don't talk about socks in the laundry. I don't talk about Wonder Bread . . . I talk about life, and that pisses some people off."
I'm not the greatest husband - I've got a girlfriend. It doesn't really please my wife, but then if I was looking to please her I wouldn't have a girlfriend. I mean she knows about it, and I guess she's okay with it. Plus my kids like both of them.
Life is like sex, baby--the more you put in, the more you get out. End of story.
