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.

"Good Grief" is bad news.The new Fox sitcom, which premieres at 9:30 Sunday night on WBFF-TV (Channel 45), is not very funny, has no consistent focus and is likely to offend gays and lesbians with all its low-rent homosexual humor. That about cover it? Not quite.Like other disappointing Fox pilots this fall, "Good Grief" looked good on paper.It's about a mortuary business run by brothers-in-law. Warren Pepper (Joel Brooks) is the son of the mortuary's original owner. Warren is conservative and traditional.

Baltimore escape artist Spencer Horsman's willingness to almost die in front of an audience is proving a smash on NBC's "America's Got Talent. " "Yeah, apparently they like the fact that I'm willing to almost kill and mangle myself every round," Horsman said with a laugh, just a day after his latest escape earned him a spot in the show's final round, being taped this month in New York. Truly, the 26-year-old, heretofore best known for performing on weekends at his Federal Hill club, Illusions, is going national.

Howie Mandel knows the power of womanly persuasion. When producers of the TV game show Deal or No Deal offered to make him the host, he turned them down twice. "I didn't get it," Mandel said. Then his wife said, "You idiot, take this job," he recalls. He did. The show, where contestants pick briefcases containing sums of money from 1 cent to $1 million, attracted more than 18 million viewers an evening in its first season - a jackpot for NBC. Somehow, "I told you so," just doesn't quite say it. "She was right," Mandel said.

Auditions continue in Tampa, Fla. and we're off to a great start with a kiddie dance troupe called The Untouchables. They previously auditioned for the show with a bigger group, but the size proved problematic. Now they're back with fewer people and the cutbacks have payed off. I mean, not only are they super lively and precise, 8-year-olds are lifting and spinning one another above their heads! Judge Howard Stern, who has said at least three times this season that he normally fast forwards through the dance acts when he watches the show at home, calls them “captivating” and tells the cute, younger dancers that puberty is their “worst enemy.” “Shirley Temple didn't listen to me,” Howard says.

Tonight, Howie Mandel, the eccentric host of Deal or No Deal, leaves the babes and briefcases behind (for a little while at least) to take the helm of a new hidden camera show, Howie Do It. But those looking for impromptu hilarity should look elsewhere. Howie Do It is nothing but a Candid Camera knock-off with lame jokes. Just like Candid, Mandel targets real people, and these people are put in odd and embarrassing situations while cameras roll. There is one slight twist though: Mandel - well-known for being a germaphobe and being averse to handshaking - bases some of the material on his battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder.

WHEN YOU THINK OF THE SAVE-A-Heart Foundation Inc., which raises money for cardiac equipment, the phrase "good for a laugh" doesn't leap to mind. But that was exactly the point of the foundation's fundraiser, "Howie Mandel -- A Night of Outrageous Comedy." And judging by the conversation at the post-concert dessert reception (which Mandel did not attend) Save-A-Heart achieved that goal. On the Lyric Opera House mezzanine, folks noshed on desserts and compared notes on the show. Most were blown away by Mandel's exuberance.

OVER my morning coffee, I spotted an item in the paper which is notable, not for its singularity, but for its depressing familiarity. "Naval Academy officials have demanded that comedian Howie Mandel return the fee he was paid for a show last month at the Annapolis school in which he jokingly invited women in the audience to perform oral sex on stage," reported the Washington Post.I like Howie Mandel. I think he's funny. But it doesn't surprise me to learn that in his live appearances he resorts to cheap, salacious talk.
