Versatile Mandel Appearing At Westbury

Comedian/actor Howie Mandel will be appearing at Westbury Music Fair on Saturday, at 8p.m.. Tickets are available at the Music Fair’s box office, most Ticketmaster outlets, or online at CC.com or Musicfair.com.

Mandel’s career has encompassed virtually every area of entertainment, including television, film and the stage. He has steadily performed as many as 200 concert dates a year, making him one of the most successful comedy stars today. He has also hosted his own syndicated talk show, "The Howie Mandel Show"

Howie started his career on a dare during a business trip to Los Angeles in 1979. He was at the legendary Comedy Store on amateur night and after the scheduled performers had finished, Howie was coaxed by his friends to get up and try his luck. As fate would have it, there was a producer in the crowd that night who hired him on the spot for an appearance on the comedy game show "Make Me Laugh". This led to talk shows, a stint as Diana Ross’ opening act and eventually to the television series, "St. Elsewhere," where Howie spent six years as Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the award-winning NBC drama.
