Howie Mandel is giving the phrase, “ the hardest working man in show business,” new meaning with three television shows and an ongoing comedy tour in play. It seems the Canadian host, comedian, actor and executive producer has made his mark on the American entertainment scene effortlessly. And according to his interview on Bernie & Sid In the Morning, he has no plans on slowing down.
Mandel gained national notoriety in 1982 as Dr. Wayne Fiscus on the Emmy award-winning series, “St. Elsewhere,” for six years. While still doing comedy on the side, Mandel continued his small screen reign when he moved from sitcoms to hosting his first talk show, “The Howie Mandel Show.” The short-lived series would foreshadow the massive success that would come for him October 2005, when he was tapped to be the host of “Deal or No Deal,” which debuted December 2005 on NBC. The popular show premiered in Canada the following year, making Mandel one of few who hosted an international and domestic show at the same time. After a brief cancellation, Deal or No Deal is back on its new home, CNBC, tonight at 10 pm ET.
You can also catch Howie Mandel on the 14th season of “America’s Got Talent”, Tuesday nights at 7 pm ET. Mandel is back on NBC like he never left. This season is the Emmy nominated hosts’ tenth season with the show, as he welcomes a team of new and familiar faces including Gabrielle Union, Terry Crews, Julianne Hough, and show staple, Simon Cowell. And if you dream of seeing animals doing things, then Mandel has a show for that too. A play off of the popular Instagram page, @AnimalsDoingThings, Season 2 premiered on National Geographic, June 2nd. With an “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” feel, you get to watch Mandel as he chronicles the activities of animals living their best lives out in the world.
