Quot i have been Lucky enough to Garner a big audience from several different entities. There Are the st. Elsewhere fans who Only know me As or. Fiscus. There Are the Cable special fans who Only know me As a stand up comic. And then there Are the mom and dad fans from Bobby s world quot i be been very Lucky that my tastes in comedy Are the same As a mass of people. I be always had a mass audience even in school. Only then there also was a mass of teachers who despised me. Now there Are a mass of teachers who buy tickets to see me. Quot i Haven t changed at All the response to me has changed. Everything i be Ever been hit for punished for and fined for is what i get paid for he in t kidding. This is the class Clown who once invited contractors to bid on a new Wing for his High school in Toronto. His principal did not think it was funny when he questioned construction workers surveying the school and was told that they had responded to a request by a or. Howard Mandel. Despite that auspicious beginning however Mandel did not pursue a life of comedy at first he pursued a life of carpets. But while on vacation from Selling carpets he visited the comedy store in los Angeles and was persuaded by friends to try his hand on Amateur night. The jokes worked and the laughter was addicting. Quot i took a very unusual route to get Here quot Mandel said. Quot at 23, i was in the retail business and engaged to be married. My life was set. At 24,1 was living in California and trying to be a comedian. Now i m 36 and making television shows. Quot but i think i be come full Circle. I m Back in an office that looks just like the office i had when i was Selling Mandel was no George Carlin when he started in the business. He still in t. There Are no political musings no angry flailing at the system. There is no Structure or theme to his act. Quot Howie is the underlying theme of my comedy quot Mandel says. Quot i have no theme in my life. Why should i have a theme in my comedy quot when he started in the business he got his biggest laughs by putting a rubber Glove Over his head and inflating it with his nose. Talk about High brow stuff. He has t done the rubber Glove bit in at least five years and seems a bit defensive about it now but his humor still leans toward the silly. If you mention the silliness quotient of his humor he shrugs his shoulders and makes no apologies. He said he likes being silly. But he said he is serious about his career choices and with few exceptions his choices have been on target. One exception is quot Good grief quot which started with great Promise a in an interview two years ago Mandel called it the funniest Pilot script he Ever had read a but fizzled on Fox. Quot making a show is a collaborative Effort and if you have Only one great ingredient like a script it does t guarantee Success quot he said. Quot even if you have two great ingredients like a script and cast there s no guarantee. Sometimes the melding does t work. Quot i liked everybody i worked with but the show did t turn out like i had hoped. It s not something i take around to parties to show. Or even something i like to talk about in he is proud of quot Bobby s world quot a part animated part live action series that will enter its third season in the fall. He s also proud of quot the amazing live sea monkeys quot a live action series headed for lbs in the fall. He describes it As a three stooges Type comedy in which actors play those Little animals sold on the backs of magazines. In both cases Mandel maintains artistic control. After the quot Good grief quot debacle control is something he said he s never going to relinquish again. Quot i am now afforded the luxury on these projects of controlling them and if they Aren t successful in the ratings then at least i know i la love the shows. That s All that s the Mcdonald s commercial was a present to his 7-year-old daughter who had been pleading with him to get her on television. Quot she s been begging since she was 2," he said. Quot All her friends at school Are in National commercials or to series and i be been trying to hold her Back. Quot i Don t think this is a wonderful business for kids. But when they asked me if i d like to do a commercial with my family my wife and son said no Way and my daughter burst into tears. Quot what could i do i m her daddy."f4 the Orange.
