Howie Mandel

For a guy who hates to get dirty, it's pretty hard to believe Howie Mandel just moved his production company into an L.A. office building famous for housing the biggest PORN company on Earth!

But it's true!!! TMZ has learned Howie just took over some office space in the Vivid Entertainment building in L.A. ... right around the corner from Universal Studios.

Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tells us he's very excited to hang with his new office neighbor -- and personally gave Howie a tour of the building last month.

Hirsch tells us his team is more than happy to do "whatever it takes" to make Howie feel comfortable at the XXX compound ...  adding, "We even painted the walls and replaced the carpet."

We called Howie for comment -- so far, no response.

joey _ I love TMZ 'til ya piss me off!    

Rumor has it that someone is helping him try to lessen his ocd by exposing (so to speak) him to gross stuff, like they did in some cable show. I still bet he has some Purell hidden somewhere............

He's the worst of the judges, on "America's Got Talent". I have to switch channels when the camera is on him. I'ts because he seems to think it's his show!

Howie Mandel's fear of germs is BULL****.

I saw a stand-up of his from the early 90s and he was face down on the ground rubbing his body all over the stage floor AND he was the last act.

It wasn't even funny, just some childish crap.

Wasn't even funny at all, just some creepy childish crap.

Wasn't even aware Howie had a production company. They ever put anything out.

This attention whoring reeks of desperation to me.

Looks like the sun's finally done cooking Howie's brain through his bald scalp. He ever put sunblock on that dome?

Hirsch is such a low-life that I am proud of the fact that I am not even in the same state as him. There's no way I would rent office space in a building with him.

Lol... "We even painted the walls and replaced the carpet."
So what are you saying, Steve? That the place was unpresentable before Howie wanted to move in? Were the walls covered with scat from scheisse films?
I'll bet there were pee stains on the old carpet. Some from pets, others... not so much.

I still remember reading on TMZ when Vivid and/or Hirsch wanted to put out a Casey Anthony porno, either when her trial was still going on or right after it ended. Wasn't that long ago, actually.
Wonder what the plot of the porno would have been. Would it involve a dead 3 yr. old child? Pretty pedophile-ish and necrophiliac-ish if you ask me.

Havey Levin is still fellating his buddy Steve Hirsch. Vivid is not even close to be the world's biggest porn company. Montreal based Manwin is by far the biggest but they operate under different names like Brazzers and Twisty's. As well they own most of the big tubesites like YouPorn, PornHub and Spankwire.

he is such a douche, it's all an act so people talk about him. I would say he is closer to being nuts than any thing else. The guy thinks he is funny-- he's not, and he is a judge - WHY what makes him an expert?
