The improvisational comedy king launched a new network show
“Howie Do It” in January 2009. This hidden-camera program
targets real people, and these people are put in odd and
embarrassing situations while cameras roll. There is one slight
twist though: Mandel - well-known for being a germaphobe and
being averse to handshaking - bases some of the material on his
battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder.
The actor and comedian is also currently hosting the wildly popular television game show, NBC's Deal or No Deal. In fact, Mandel received a nomination at the 60th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards in the category of “Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program." This year marked the first that such an award was given.
Despite his recent surge in fame from the Deal or No Deal phenomenon, the Canadian-born Howie Mandel has been a constant force in show business for more than 30 years. From the small screen to the big screen to the stage, Mandel has established himself as a versatile talent, equally comfortable in dramatic and comedic roles. But it was comedy that kick started his career and it's what he is known best for even today. His career began in 1979, when on a dare, he took the stage at Los Angeles' famed Comedy Store on amateur night. Mandel was so impressive, that a producer who happened to be in the audience hired him to appear on the game show Make Me Laugh.
From there, the success started to mount. Howie Mandel Atlantic City did numerous talk show appearances – a circuit he still continues to this day, as he makes for a great interview. He's also a great interviewer, as he is often tapped to fill in for Regis Philbin on Live with Regis and Kelly. He once had his own talk show, The Howie Mandel Show."
The multi-talented Howie Mandel has made forays into children's entertainment, earning Emmy nominations for his animated series, Bobby's World, which he created. The show ran for eight seasons and today is an international hit as it is syndicated in 65 countries. He helped write the show and also voiced characters for it. Gifted in creating voices, he also provided the voice for many characters, including Gizmo in both Gremlins and Gremlins 2 – the hit movies of 1980s and 1990s.
Once best known for his famous "latex glove over the head bit," Mandel has emerged as a highly sought-after actor who has appeared in numerous films and television shows. For years he has been making cameos on hit shows (My Name is Earl, Monk, Medium, Sesame Street and others) as well as regular appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Named one of Comedy Central's 100 best stand-up comedians of all time, Mandel tirelessly continues to perform as many as 200 shows each year. Plus, he recently received a coveted star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.
