Howie Mandel performs at Lake Tahoe South Shore casino

Howie Mandel performs on South Shore Saturday, Sept. 15.

Comedian and TV personality Howie Mandel is coming to Tahoe.

Known for his comedy specials and TV roles, Mandel has been a presence in popular culture for over 30 years.

"Howie started his career on a dare in Toronto in 1979 and then one night during a trip to Los Angeles he was at the legendary Comedy Store on amateur night and Howie was coaxed by his friends to get up and try his luck," states his bio on Facebook. "As fate would have it, there was a producer in the crowd who immediately hired him to appear on the comedy game-show Make Me Laugh."

The appearance landed Mandel spots on talk shows and eventually got him a role on the televised series "St. Elsewhere."

He then created the Award-nominated animated children series "Bobby's World," which ran for eight seasons.

"As the series' creator and executive producer, Howie was closely involved in its writing, as well as providing the voice of Bobby, Bobby's dad and other characters. Howie attributes the show's success to drawing the story lines from real life," the bio states.
