About The Film

"Lovingly directed by biography documentarian Barry Avrich, 'But Enough About Me' is a touching look at a man who uses humor to cope with a world that terrifies him." - Atlanta Jewish Times

This revealing documentary follows the life and career of Howie Mandel, the veteran comedian, actor, and producer, arguably better known for his battle with OCD and as a judge on the hit reality TV show America's Got Talent than for his comedic genius. By turns raw, funny, and touching, the film explores Mandel's early years in the comedy industry and his breakout role on one of the most beloved television series ever, St. Elsewhere. We follow him on the road performing 200 stand-up shows a year, behind the scenes at AGT, and with his family.

Through powerful onstage moments, intimate interviews, and archival footage of his early performances, we discover how Mandel emerged from being a carpet salesman to become one of the most famous and paradoxically approachable performers in the world. He frankly discusses his provocative journey, from his wild early days to his struggles with OCD and unprecedented success today.

"Beyond the comedian, beyond the germaphobe, director Barry Avrich digs deep" — Bill Harris, The Lede
