Howie is a Canadian stand-up comedian, actor, television and game show host. He is best known as Ed Flanders’s young intern, Dr. Wayne Fiscus, on the medical drama St. Elsewhere, as well as creator and star of the children’s cartoon Bobby’s World.

Mandel is known for his frequent appearances as a stand-up comedian and for his hidden camera segments on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He has appeared in many television commercials for Boston Pizza as their hired spokesperson. In April 2004, he was selected as number 82 on Comedy Central’s list of the 100 greatest stand up comedians of all time.

In October 2005, he was named to be the host of the U.S. version of Deal or No Deal, which debuted on December 19, 2005, on NBC and became a popular program in early 2006. Mandel also hosts Deal or No Deal Canada, a version of Deal or No Deal for Canadian viewers; originating from Toronto, Deal or No Deal Canada debuted in January 2007 on Global, which made him one of the few game show hosts (Weakest Link’s Anne Robinson, Pyramid’s Donny Osmond, and The Singing Bee’s Joey Fatone being others) to host both a domestic and an international version of the same game show.

Mandel’s signature stunt as a stand-up comedian (besides his Bobby alter-ego)was stretching a latex glove over his head and inflating it with his nostrils, filling it until it suddenly propelled itself off of his head. This trick also lent itself to the title and cover photo of his comedy album, Fits Like a Glove (1986). He eventually gave up the routine under doctor’s order after being diagnosed with a perforated sinus.
