Comedian Mandel
Is Jest For Success

LAURIE EINSTEIN KOSZUTA

Special to the Jewish Times

H

owie Mandel never
has to be pushed to re-
veal his whacky
brand of humor. It just
gushes out, particularly on
stage where the 31-year-old
Jewish comedian and star of
the NBC-TV series, "St. Else-
where," generates the kind of
kinetic energy and improvisa-
tional style that live audi-
ences love.
When Mandel is not on the
set of St. Elsewhere, he takes
humor on the road. It is there
on stage that Mandel's per-
sonality seems to take on a
life of its own, saying and do-
ing whatever comes to his
mind. Although he has no
idea of what his monologue
will be during his act, he isn't
afraid of letting spontaneity
take over, sending his routine
down a path different from
what he might have planned.
Whacky though his act
may be, Mandel's act con-
tains no religious humor.
"None of my act has
anything to do with my reli-
gion," he said seriously,
"because that is not my sense
of humor. I don't talk about
religion, politics or any par-
ticular person."
"I'm not asked much about

being Jewish," he laughed, "if
you want to know, yes, I was
circumcised. Seriously
though, being Jewish is a per-
sonal thing, not something
that I could use in any im-
provisational act."
Because his act shies away
from derogatory humor, it
isn't surprising to find that
much of his on-stage persona
mimics many of his childhood
pranks. The only difference is
that now he won't get ground-
ed by his parents and audi-
ences pay to see him perform.
It was a different story grow-
ing up in rIbronto. Canada,
where only his parents, a com-
mercial lighting salesman and
a real estate broker, and the
school principal seemed in-
terested in his behavior.
Their interest stemmed
from stopping crazy high
school stunts rather than pro-
moting them. Like the time
he contacted an unsuspecting
local construction company
to arrange for bids on a bogus
plan to enlarge the school li-
brary. Then there was the
time that he entered a math
class from a ladder placed at
a third floor window.
However, despite warnings
against such behavior, Man-
del never really stopped
pushing his zaniness to the
limit and wound up being ex-
