Howie Mandel brings laughs to Atlantic City


October 03, 2002|By Lori Sears

Need a good laugh? Comedian Howie Mandel brings his quick wit and sarcastic slant to Caesars Atlantic City tomorrow through Sunday.

Mandel, who's been a stand-up comedian for more than 20 years, can well be labeled a workhorse in the entertainment industry, performing roughly 200 concerts a year. He's starred in television (St. Elsewhere, The Howie Mandel Show) and film (Little Monsters, the voice of Gizmo in Gremlins), and he's created a series of interactive animated CD-ROMs for children.

Mandel's comedy career began the moment he took the stage on amateur night at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles in 1979. He performed on a dare by his friends. A producer from the game show Make Me Laugh was in the audience, loved his shtick and immediately hired him for the show.

Howie Mandel performs at 10 p.m. tomorrow, 9 p.m. Saturday and 8 p.m. Sunday at Caesars Atlantic City, Circus Maximus Theater, 2100 Pacific Ave, Atlantic City, N.J. $45. Call 800-736-1420 for tickets or 800-677-SHOW for more information.
