Howie Mandel must like Windsor.The veteran comedian and television personality once repped a Win City brand T-shirt on the Today Show — a souvenir he picked up downtown after performing at Caesars Windsor in 2014.Now the 40-year veteran of show business is returning to The Colosseum, scheduled for a stand-up gig this summer, on July 21.“I have never stopped (doing stand-up comedy). I do, like, 200 dates a year,” Mandel noted on The Wendy Williams Show earlier this year.From his wild, hyperactive performances in the 1980s to his frank talk about mental health and obsessive compulsive disorder in the 2000s, Mandel believes stand-up comedy is one of the last remaining avenues for freedom of speech in self-expression.“I think the art form of comedy is dying,” Mandel confessed. “Political correctness is over the top today. You know, context is everything … Mimes have it so easy today. I want to be a mime.”Show begins 8 p.m. for 19 and olderTicket prices start at $23 going on sale April 26 at noon.Call 1-800-991-7777 for more information.
