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. And, he also serves as one of the judges on NBC’s summer hit talent competition series “America’s Got Talent” alongside Sharon Osborne. 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 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.
