Did you ever wonder who Howie Mandel is speaking to on the cell phone during the dramatic offer moments of Deal or No Deal? Our guess: himself. Think about it Mandel is basically insane. Thats always been his shtick, if you can even call it a shtick, because its totally real. His signature move is blowing up a latex glove on his head. Hes completely shaved because of his raging OCD disorder, not because hes trying to look like Bruce Willis. If we ran into Mandel on the street, wed run in the opposite direction fast. But if we saw him on stage? Ah, well thats where crazy really works! And Mandels got all the crazy he needs to rock a joint like Hard Rock Live (5747 Seminole Way, Hollywood), which hell do Sunday at 7 p.m. Tickets cost 45 to $75.
