He’s no Jack Horner, and he’s NOT sitting in a corner.

Brooklyn-born17 bad-boy supercomic Andrew “Dice” Clay — notorious for infusing nursery rhymes with big bolts of blue humor — returned to his home turf on Saturday to deliver his saucy elbow-ticklers during a one-night show at MCU Park.

The Diceman, a Brownsville native, received an uproarious welcome from the 3,000-strong crowd, which packed the Brooklyn Cyclones’ stadium in Coney Island, and clung to his every X-rated word like bees to a honeypot.

Clay, who got his start at the now-defunct Pips comedy club in Sheepshead Bay, has been under Brooklyn’s radar in recent years, instead traveling around the country and performing at more than 300 sold-out arena shows in solo gigs, and alongside the likes of Guns ‘N’ Roses and Metallica.

On Saturday — after opening acts Eleanor Kerrigan and Michael “Wheels” Parisi set the stage — Dice showed why he was once banned from CNN and MTV, mouthing off bawdy puns and one-liners, and drawing guffaws and thunderous applause from the smitten audience.

Pete Swanson, who traveled from Suffolk County for the show, wasn’t disappointed.

“Dice did his dirty, raunchy, filthy routine — and it was great!” he cackled.

The man on stage got the last laugh, though.

“I’m the first supercomic ever, and that’s why I survived it all!” boomed Dice.
