Howie Mandel

Judge Bio

Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for more than 30 years. For a decade he has served as a judge on NBC’s hit summer talent competition series "America’s Got Talent." He is also a judge on the global winter edition of the series, "America’s Got Talent: The Champions," which aired its second season in January.


Mandel serves as executive producer and host of the CNBC game show "Deal or No Deal" and also co-hosts "Animals Doing Things" with his son Alex on Nat Geo Wild.


Mandel recently released his first solo special in 20 years, "Howie Mandel Presents: Howie Mandel at the Howie Mandel Comedy Club." His additional work as a host, actor and/or executive producer includes "Take It All" and "Howie Do It" for NBC, "Deal with It" for TBS and "Mobbed" for Fox.


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-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 resume 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 on its first week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks.


Mandel has done countless comedy specials on both 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 also continues to perform as many as 200 stand-up comedy shows each year throughout the US and Canada
