Andrew Dice Clay is one of the few comics to last three decades on his own highly controversial terms - and he's about to make headlines again on a national tour with the equally outrageous Roseanne. He talks with the guys about that sure-to-be-wild tour, as well as what it's taken to stay on top in the comedy biz for so long, his surprisingly acclaimed dramatic acting career and how he scored the role of Lady Gaga's father in "A Star Is Born" over Robert DeNiro and Ray Liotta.

Antonio and Carl plus guest host Kevin Corcoran have some laughs over the Colin Kaepernick/Nike Betsy Ross shoe controversy, consider whether they'd give their 5-year old kid CBD oil, and freak out over what happened to a guy who died the grossest imaginable death after eating a gecko on a dare. Man Up and listen!
