The show “Entourage” has resurrected Andrew Dice Clay‘s career, which was dead for the past decade. According to the NY Post:

“My career was dead a year ago,” the Brooklyn-born comic admits. “I still don’t have too much money. It’s been very hard to pay the bills. But I never judged my life by what I have financially.”

Clay — best known for his homophobic and X-rated nursery rhymes — lost much of his fortune in a bitter 2002 divorce, then fell off the Hollywood radar for almost a decade.

“I sort of self-exiled myself because of what I was going through in my personal life,” he tells The Post. “I felt it was more important to raise my sons [Max, 21, and Dillon, 16].”

Clay talks about going from doing sold out arena tours to doing small clubs and not having much money to finally bouncing back and having a world of opportunites in front of him:

The side-burned funnyman instead says he has spoken with Jerry Seinfeld about teaming up for a series of arena concerts.

He is shopping an autobiography, which promises details of a one-time love affair with “Desperate Housewives” actress Teri Hatcher.

Clay is also negotiating a cable stand-up special and will kick off a nationwide comedy tour Oct. 1 at MCU Park.
