Jackie Mandel’s Father, Howie Mandel
Born Howard Michael Mandel on the 29th November 1955, in Toronto, Ontario Canada, of Polish Jewish ancestry, he also traces roots from Romania – his distant cousin is Itzhak Perlman, a famous Israeli violinist.
He went to William Lyon Mackenzie Collegiate, but was expelled because he impersonated a school official in order to hire a construction company to build an addition to the school. After this, he focused on his career as a comedian.
Before he became a famous comedian and TV personality, Howie was making a fool out of himself at the national comedy club, Yuk Yuk in Toronto. He became the club’s regular as the fans loved him; during his routine, he would place a latex glove over his head and blow through the nose to inflate the glove and the latex fingers would come over his head as a cockscomb.
He then went to Los Angeles where he performed at The Comedy Store, and was hired as a regular performer. Soon after, he made his first on-screen appearance in the TV show “Make Me Laugh”, and then featured as an opening act for David Letterman in shows during the summer of 1979. He became the main face of CBC-TV, and in 1980 secured his first starring role in the film “Gas”, next to Susan Anspach and Donald Sutherland.
Rise to Prominence
Howie became a star in the early ‘80s, thanks largely to the role of Dr. Wayne Fiscus in the TV series “St. Elsewhere”, appearing in 137 episodes of the highly popular series.
During the ‘80s he also provided the voice to Gizmo, a cute Gremlin in the film “Gremlins” in 1984, and its sequel Gremlins 2: The New Batch”, though the film was released in 1990. He starred in several other projects in the ‘80s, including films “A Fine Mess” (1986) and “Walk Like a Man” from 1987.
Throughout the ‘90s he became more focused on his career as a comedian, touring the US with his routine, but also appearing in a number of TV series, as well as providing the voice to several characters from animated series. Furthermore, he also hosted his own “The Howie Mandel Show” (1998-1999), but it was in the 2000s that he has reached his full potential.

Starting with starring roles in a few films, including “Apocalypse III: Tribulation” (2000), “Hansel and Gretel” (2002), then in the television movie “Crown Heights” (2004), among others. However, in 2005 he was named the host of the US version of the popular show “Deal or No Deal”, and until 2019 hosted over 230 episodes of the Primetime Emmy Award-nominated series. This celebrated him as a TV personality, and he was subsequently named the host of the Canadian version, hosting the show for its five episodes before it was canceled.
In 2010, Howie struck another deal profitable to his television career, when he was chosen as the replacement for David Hasselhoff as one of the judges in NBC’s show “America’s Got Talent”, Hasselhoff leaving the show to focus on other projects, primarily a new TV series. Since then, Howie has become the judge with the longest tenure than any other judge or host, lasting so far for 11 seasons.
