Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for over 30 years. Howie started his career on a dare in Toronto in 1979 and then one night during a trip to Los Angeles he was at the legendary Comedy Store on amateur night and Howie 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 Howie spent six seasons as “Dr. Wayne Fiscus” on the award-winning NBC drama.

He also serves as one of the judges on NBC’s summer hit talent competition series America’s Got Talent alongside Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howard Stern.

Howie’s versatile career has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum, including television, film and stage.  Howie also continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the US and Canada.
