pelled from three high
schools. Yet, even quitting
high school wasn't a problem,
merely a setback. Undaunted,
Mandel eventually finished
his high school equivalency
and became a door-to-door
carpet salesman. Within two
years, not only did he own
two carpet outlet stores, he
became boss to 24 employees.
Eventually, however, Man-
del grew restless with carpet
sales and decided to branch
out into novelty toys, some-
thing that more closely repre-
sented his point of view and
whacky humor. One item, the
Uncle Sherman flasher doll
appropriately undressed un-
der der
a trenchcoat, was one of
his favorites and drew a great
deal of comment from cust-
omers.
His break into show busi-
ness came while vacationing
in Los Angeles. After drop-
ping in on amateur night at
The Comedy Store, a local
comedy nightclub, he took
r the stage at the urging of his
i friends. Nervous energy pro-
I pelled his impromptu act and
Mandel was surprised when
the audience liked his antics
enough to laugh. By sheer
coincidence, the producer of
the comedy-game show,
"Make Me Laugh," was in the
audience and agreed with the
audience assessment of his
ability. Soon after, he was
signed to do 15 episodes of
the comedy-game show with-
in a three day period.
So he traded in carpet sales
for laughs and has been enter-
, taining the masses ever since.
His nervous energy prevails
today and is the lifeblood of
his act.
"I have no idea what I will
do on stage before or even
while I am doing it," Mandel
commented. "I just have a
good time and hope for
laughs."
Should the laughter die or
fail to come at all, Mandel
relies on his trademark sur-
gical glove routine as a back-
up. The glove is placed low
enough on his head to cover
his nose, so with every breath,
he takes on the characteristic
features of a fingered bubble-
head.
When he is not on the road,
Mandel is constantly plan-
ning ahead — thinking about
new movie projects, music
videos, record albums and
specials for HBO. He has
already starred in three
feature films, "A Fine Mess,"
"Walk Like A Man," and
"Watch Your Step."
Perhaps the one ongoing
project that Mandel takes
seriously is his role of
emergency room physician,
Dr. Wayne Fiscus on "St.
Elsewhere." He fiercely
defends the series, now in its
sixth season, and particular-
