Howie Mandel is a stand-up comedian, actor and media personality from from Toronto, Canada who is perhaps best known these days as the host of NBC's hit game show Deal or No Deal. However, Mandel's career in the public spotlight spans decades, with his six-year run as Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the hit 1980s soap opera St. Elsewhere having catapulted the young actor into national stardom. Following this career-making role, Mandel would subordinate his stand-up career throughout much of the 1990s to pursue lucrative roles on television, particularly in voice-over work for animated shows. Following some years where his time in the comedy spotlight seemed to be coming to an end, Mandel was able to bounce back and successfully revive his career as a celebrated television personality and stand-up comedian.
Eddie Izzard is a stand-up comedian and actor based in London, whose tour de force career in comedy has yielded several successful comedy tours, roles in critically acclaimed films and television series. Particularly known for his witty, rambling comic monologue as well as his predilection for wearing women's clothing on-stage, Izzard has not only done much to advance stand-up comedy into more intellectually rigorous territory, but has also increased the public's awareness and acceptance of transvestism perhaps more than any entertainer that came before him. Consistently ranked by critics as one of the top five British comedians performing today, as well as earning multiple awards for his work in comedy, Eddie Izzard continues to be a legend on the comedy circuit and his live shows in particular are not to be missed.
Since 2001, John Legend has been making passionate neo-soul love to America. His status as an R&B musician is colored by his past experience as a management consultant, where he multi-tasked to both promote and create his demo. Artist Kanye West pulled a few strings on his behalf and Legend started collaborating with several up and coming artists until the start of his solo career. Success still seems to follow the business-minded artist, whose fan base has been growing ever since.
