HOWIE MANDEL


BIO: Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for over 30 years. Howie is the host and executive producer of the Fox series MOBBED, an unscripted show that puts a hidden-camera spin on the “flash mob” concept. He is also the executive producer and host of NBC’s Take It All, a gameshow based on the famous holiday game White Elephant. He serves as one of the judges on NBC’s summer hit talent competition series “America’s Got Talent” alongside Sharon Osborne and Howard Stern. Howie recently received an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Reality/Competition Host” for “Deal or No Deal” and a Daytime Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Game Show Host” for the syndicated version of the show.Howie’s versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum, including television, film and stage. From his work on the Emmy-Award winning “St. Elsewhere,” to the international animated children’s series “Bobby’s World,” Howie has become a mainstay of the American comedy scene. In 2009, Howie added another title to his resume, author, when he released his frank, funny, no-holds-barred memoir Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me. The memoir that revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD–and how it has shaped his life and career made the New York Times Bestseller list on its first week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks.Howie started his career on a dare during a trip to Los Angeles in 1979. He was at the legendary Comedy Store on amateur night and Howie was coaxed by his friends to get up and try his luck. As fate would have it, there was a producer in the crowd who immediately hired him to appear on the comedy game-show “Make Me Laugh”. His appearance on the show led to talk show appearances, a stint as Diana Ross’ opening act and eventually to the television series, “St. Elsewhere,” where Howie spent six seasons as “Dr. Wayne Fiscus” on the award-winning NBC drama. Howie’s Emmy Award-nominated animated children series, “Bobby’s World”, ran eight seasons on FOX and now appears in syndication six days a week in 65 countries. As the series’ creator and executive producer, Howie was closely involved in its writing, as well as providing the voice of Bobby, Bobby’s dad and other characters. Howie attributes the show’s success to drawing the story lines from real life.Howie has done countless comedy specials both on cable and network television. He has also hosted his own syndicated talk show, “The Howie Mandel Show,” and continues to be a mainstay on the talk-show circuit. He frequently appears on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno performing his signature hidden-camera bits. Howie also continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the US and Canada. Howie lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Terry, and their three children.`
