Howie Mandel Bio
The story goes that huggable stand
up comedian Howie Mandel, who ran a carpet business at the time, began his show
biz career by chance while catching amateur night at the Comedy Store on the
L.A. Sunset Strip during a vacation. Goaded on by friends to try out, a producer
spotted and hired him for an appearance on the comedy game show "Make Me
Laugh" and the rest is history. Talk about luck! Born in Toronto, Canada in
1955, Howie became a highly affable performer who quickly graduated to TV talk
shows and Vegas gigs. Six years on, the critically-acclaimed "St.
Elsewhere" (1982) medical drama not only increased his visibility but
earned him Emmy nominations. An affinity for children led him to the
Emmy-nominated animated kids' series "Bobby's World" (1990) serving as
creator, executive producer and vocal talent. Film stardom has been elusive with
silly, bumbling vehicles such as Fine Mess, A (1986), Walk Like a Man (1987) and
Little Monsters (1989) failing to click with audiences. Kids, however, enjoyed
his cuddly voice as Gizmo, in the Gremlins (1984) film series.
Following his own failed talk show "Howie Mandel Show, The" (1998) in
the 1998-1999 season, Howie has managed a full time schedule of concerts and
comedy specials that keeps him current with today's audiences.
