Howie Mandel Re-Lives Hosting Nightmare

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hosting awards shows has been a real nightmare for Howie Mandel.

After sharing hosting duties for the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards with Jeff Probst, Heidi Klum, Tom Bergeron, and Ryan Seacrest, Mandel has learned one thing: Don’t share the hosting stage!

He says, “One host is really enough. If you have five, you don’t get five times better hosting. There’s no room for anything.”

Mandel says hosting the Emmys again would be like “a re-occurring nightmare,” so when he was approached to host the first ever Game Show Awards for the Game Show Network, he made sure he was the only one with the microphone.

The funnyman is excited to host the show, which airs June 6, since he gets to blend two things he’s good at – hosting game shows and hosting awards shows.

There is one last thing Mandel needs for the night, though.

He says, “Now I’m just looking for pants.”
