HOWIE MANDEL: BUT, ENOUGH ABOUT ME is raw, funny and touching! An intimate and provocative documentary, the film explores the life and career of Howie Mandel, a veteran comedian, actor and producer, arguably most known for his battle with OCD and for being a judge on America’s Got Talent rather than for his considerable comedic genius. The film delves into his early years in the comedy industry and how he became a star on one of the most beloved television series ever, St. Elsewhere. We follow Howie on the road while he performs over 200 stand up performances each year, going behind-the-scenes at AGT, and enjoying personal time with his family. The film also explores his personal struggles with OCD. Through powerful on-stage moments, interviews and archival footage of his early performances – we discover how Howie emerged from being a carpet salesman to become one of the most famous and paradoxically approachable performers in the world.
Running Time: 88 Minutes
