Biography

A steady force in the stand-up comedy world for two decades, Howie Mandel's contributions to entertainment also included work as a dramatic actor, a charismatic television host and the creator of one of television's cutest animated pre-schoolers. Mandel was first known for his role as a quirky young doctor on the Emmy winning medical drama "St. Elsewhere" (NBC, 1982-88) before he created and starred in the Saturday morning animated favorite "Bobby's World" (Fox Kids, 1990-99). Mandel delivered steady laughs with cable comedy specials for HBO and Showtime, and served as a prankster correspondent on "The Tonight Show" (NBC, 1955-), even as several attempts at sitcoms and talk shows failed to materialize. In 2005, Mandel used his experience as an improviser and endearing jokester to claim huge success as the host of the wildly popular nighttime game show "Deal or No Deal?" (NBC, 2005-).
