Howie Mandel at Silver Legacy

Friday July 12, 2013

Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for over 30 years. This summer he embarked on his latest endeavor as the host of the hidden camera show “Mobbed,” helping special guests plan surprises utilizing flash mobs. Join Silver Legacy for a night full of laughs on Friday, August 9 at 8 p.m.

Howie has been best known as a judge on NBC's hit talent competition series "America's Got Talent" alongside Sharon Osborne and Piers Morgan. 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. His 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 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 he 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. He 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 and continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the US and Canada.
