Howie Mandel Howie Mandel

If the only information about OCD came from Howie Mandel, I would think that talking about having it was its worst symptom. He's practically turned an affliction into shtick! Anyway, he mentioned it again on his Tonight Show with Jay Leno appearance Monday night to promote the start of the live rounds on America's Got Talent. He also came out in an Elizabethan collar for no reason other than to be wacky. What a card! It's as though the AGT weirdness has gone to his head, or at least his neck.

And speaking of that weirdness, Mandel also discussed the flak he's received for "supporting the crazy people" on the show. Actually, it's the crazy people who must be complaining because pushing through the weirdoes constitutes Mandel's greatest contribution since voicing Gizmo in Gremlins. If you need proof, look no further than the geriatric pianist-acrobat duo, Meet Me at Fairfax and 3rd, who reprise their AGT act at the end of this clip:
