From a press release:

It was announced today that distinguished comedian, current “America’s Got Talent” judge, and former “Deal or No Deal” host Howie Mandel is set to bring his comedic talents to the Keystone Grand Ballroom at Mohegan Pennsylvania on Friday, Oct. 18.

Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for more than 40 years. He can currently be seen on NBC’s flagship series “​America’s Got Talent,” where he has served as a judge for 14 seasons. In 2020, he released a documentary titled “​Howie Mandel: But Enough About Me,” a heartwarming, funny, and candid look at the life of the wildly inventive comedian and actor. This intimate portrait examines one of the most beloved and complex comedians working today and his invulnerable spirit. Told through his own voice, the film examines his extraordinary life and career.

Other recent projects include judging NBC’s ​”America’s Got Talent” spinoffs “The Champions,” “All-Stars,” and “Fantasy League;” CNBC’s ​”Deal or No Deal,” where he served as executive producer and host; and Nat Geo Wild’s “​Animals Doing Things,” where he co-hosted with his son, Alex. He also executive produced the Quibi series ​”Kirby Jenner.” In 2019, he released his first solo special in 20 years, “​Howie Mandel Presents Howie Mandel at the Howie Mandel Comedy Club,” recorded at the comedy club that bears his name in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The 68-year-old Toronto native has done countless comedy specials on both cable and network television. He also hosted his own syndicated talk show, “The Howie Mandel Show,” and is a mainstay on the talk show circuit. He continues to perform as many as 200 standup comedy shows each year throughout the United States and Canada.
