COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS RELEASES MO MANDEL'S "THE M WORD"
DIGITAL ALBUM ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8
NEW YORK, October 26, 2011 – M is for Mandel! COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases Mo Mandel's "The M Word" digital album on Tuesday, November 8.
This hilarious set from Mo Mandel covers the fear of public speaking, growing up with pot-smoking parents and why his body is not a temple. Recorded at Comedy Works in Denver, Mandel's jokes are personal and universal.
Raised by hippies in the woods of northern California, Mandel used to lie awake at night listening to his mother's samba band practicing in the room next door, inspiring him to become a performer. Flash forward, Mandel has established him as one of the most talented and entertaining entertainers in entertainment. First gaining national attention by winning COMEDY CENTRAL's "Open Mic Fight," Mandel has since appeared on COMEDY CENTRAL's "Live at Gotham," "COMEDY CENTRAL Presents" and "Reality Bites Back," as well as at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. Mandel has also been seen on "Conan," E!'s "Chelsea Lately," CBS's "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson," MyNetwork TV's "The Golden Trailer Awards" and co-hosted a pilot called "Pop Monkey" for VH1. Most recently, he has been a lead in NBC's "Free Agents" and appeared on ABC's "Modern Family."
