Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for more than 30 years. He currently serves as a judge on NBC’s hit summer talent competition series “America’s Got Talent,” now in its milestone 12th season. This is Mandel’s eighth season on the series.
Mandel also serves as executive producer of many shows with his production company, Alevy Productions. Previously, Mandel received an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program for “Deal or No Deal” and a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Game Show Host for the syndicated version of the show.
Mandel’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,” Mandel has become a mainstay of the American comedy scene. In 2009, Mandel added author to his résumé when he released his frank, funny and no-holds-barred memoir “Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me.” The memoir revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD, and how it has shaped his life and career. It made the New York Times best-seller list in its first week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks.
Mandel 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 was coaxed by 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 award-winning NBC drama “St. Elsewhere,” where Mandel spent six seasons as Dr. Wayne Fiscus.
Mandel’s Emmy Award-nominated animated children series “Bobby’s World” ran for eight seasons and now appears in syndication six days a week in 65 countries. As the series creator and executive producer, Mandel was closely involved in its writing and provided the voice of Bobby, Bobby’s dad and other characters. Mandel attributes the show’s success to drawing the storylines from real life.
Mandel 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. Mandel also continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Mandel lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Terry, and their three children.
