Howie Mandel

Howie Mandel arrives at the “America’s Got Talent” red carpet at Radio City Music Hall on July 29 in New York. Mandel performs Friday at Four Winds in New Buffalo.

NEW BUFFALO, Mich. — Howie Mandel scoffs at the notion that his role as judge alongside Heidi Klum, Howard Stern and Mel B on NBC's "America's Got Talent" could in any way be considered a tough job.

"Tough, are you kidding me?" Mandel said by telephone from Los Angeles. "It doesn't even feel like a job. I just get paid now to do what I did alone in my living room in my underpants watching TV. I just get to do that here."
