Actor, comedian, host and producer Howie Mandel returns to Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Monday, January 28, 2013 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale, now.
Howie Mandel has remained a constant force in show business for over 30 years. Mandel is the host and executive producer of NBC’s new, high stakes game show Take It All, which is based on the wildly popular holiday game “White Elephant” or “Yankee Swap,” premiering Monday, December 10 and airs as a six night event. He also hosts and executive produces the Fox series Mobbed, an unscripted show that puts a hidden-camera spin on the “flash mob” concept; and he serves as one of the judges on NBC’s summer hit talent competition series America’s Got Talent. Mandel recently received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Reality/Competition Host for Deal or No Deal and a Daytime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Game Show Host for the syndicated version of the show.
With a versatile career that has encompassed virtually all aspects of the entertainment spectrum including television, film and stage, Mandel has become a mainstay on the American comedy scene. His impressive credits range from the Emmy-Award winning St. Elsewhere to the international animated children’s series Bobby’s World. In 2009, Mandel added another title to his resume, author, when he released his frank, funny, no-holds-barred memoir Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me. The memoir that revealed his ongoing struggle with OCD and ADHD–and how it has shaped his life and career made the New York Times Bestseller list on its first week and remained on the list for several consecutive weeks.
Mandel started his career on a dare at amateur night at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles in 1979. 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 he spent six seasons as “Dr. Wayne Fiscus” on the award-winning NBC drama.
Mandel’s Emmy Award-nominated animated children series, Bobby’s World, ran eight seasons on FOX and now appears in syndication six days a week in 65 countries. As the series’ creator and executive producer, Mandel was closely involved in its writing, as well as providing the voice of Bobby, Bobby’s dad and other characters. Mandel attributes the show’s success to drawing the story lines from real life.
Having starred in countless comedy specials both on cable and network television, Mandel also hosted his namesake syndicated talk show, The Howie Mandel Show, and continues to be a mainstay on the talk-show circuit. He frequently appears on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno performing his signature hidden-camera bits.
Mandel continues to perform as many as 200 concerts a year throughout the US and Canada.
