This man has more money and anyone you know.
For fucks sake.
You are not Pee Wee Herman.
I thought he was really funny when I was 6 or 7! No peewee, but as I grew the relative genius of the latter became apparent and Howie just sort of creeped me out.
I'm amazed I was able to watch the whole thing.
Back in middle school, one of my good friends was this kid named Kevin, and his parents owned a comedy club in Philadelphia called Comedy Works. One night, Kevin's parents took us to the club and Howie Mandell stopped by unannounced to do a set, after he had already become pretty famous. Even at a fairly young age, I knew the dude was on something. After the set -- which was being taped -- I think he had found out that they had forgotten to have the audience sign waivers or something and we went absolutely batshit crazy. We were up on the balcony and he was just screaming at the top of his lugs, kicking over tables and smashing chairs and shit.
That's all I got.
Why would the audience need to sign waivers?
Maybe I'm using the wrong word. Maybe I meant releases.
This was forever ago, but my understanding -- based on his tantrum -- was that the footage was to be aired on HBO or some other television station at some point and the audience needed to sign a piece of paper so that they could show reaction shots, etc.
THA SUGAH RAIN
Nope. Its a public place.
Second, in the world of comedians it is entirely common to go to a club and fill space.
ALLS I KNOW is that the tantrum definitely involved releases/waivers/whatever.
I used to really like Howie when I was a kid. Now...well...
Could you imagine a world where Carlos Mencia ripped off this guy?
I laugh at the drop of a hat so to speak. I laugh when I drive by a dog taking a shit, someone dropping a soda etc. Five stars of hate, for something that is supposed to be comedy and yet I didn't even crack a smile. Pure evil.
These stars are for the shrieking banshee who flies into an uproar whenever Howie asks 'Whaat?'
