Comedian and TV star Howie Mandel will be performing in Lake Charles at the top of the new year.

My first introduction to Howie Mandel was with watching Bobby's World, Muppet Babies, and Gremlin's when I was young.

This next Howie story is NSFW, but it's one of his best for sure.

One more clip I promise, we all know what OCD Howie is when it comes to germs and shaking people's hands...you gotta see this.

Mandel will take the Grand Event Center stage on Friday, January 17th, at 8:30pm at the Golden Nugget.
