Andrew "Dice" Clay (born Andrew Clay Silverstein on September 29, 1957, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American actor and comedian. Dice performed his first HBO Special in Philadelphia called, The Diceman Cometh, in 1989, and had his first starring role in a feature film (as "Ford Fairlane") entitled, The Adventures of Ford Fairlane, in 1990.

His popularity waned after this period. In 2002, he divorced his wife and focused in part on raising his two sons. In 2007, he attempted a comeback with the reality TV series Dice: Undisputed.

He has been considered controversial for his profanity and for the sexism and misogyny in his routines, for which he was banned from MTV and boycotted by Sinéad O'Connor and Nora Dunn, the former a guest and the latter a cast member on a 1990 episode of Saturday Night Live that Clay hosted.
