Anthony Venutolo and Jack Lugo discuss the long-awaited season 9 premiere in which “Larry” must deal with an “un-fireable” assistant plus the fallout of having offended the Ayatollah as well as squirm his way out of new faux pas involving Richard Lewis’s dead parakeet and a lesbian wedding. Anthony and Jack discuss the cultural influence of Curb versus the comedy of Jerry Seinfeld. Anthony also has an interesting story to tell about Richard Lewis from his early newspaper days.

The Diceman is back on Showtime for a second season of misadventures and irreverent vulgarity that only Andrew ‘Dice’ Clay himself could deliver. Anthony Venutolo and Jack Lugo couldn’t possibly be more overjoyed with the return of the comedic gem of series.
As we discuss the merits of Dice’s Showtime series, Anthony dives into his own personal history with Dice both as a fan and as a journalist. We also talk about the general format of this Curb-esque type comedic series and whether or not we’ve grown weary of them. This is a discussion you won’t want to miss. So get yourself a drink, sit back, and relax. We promise we won’t break your balls, but if you go see Dice at a club be warned… He just might break yours and that’s why we love him.
