Howie Mandel Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Howard Michael Mandel was born on 29 November 1955, in Toronto, Canada, of Jewish descent. He is an actor, television personality and comedian, famous for appearing in such shows as “St. Elsewhere”, “America’s Got Talent”, “Deal or no Deal” and others. During his career, Howie has been nominated for and has won various awards. Some of them include Primetime Emmy Award, Gemini Award, Golden Apple Award and others. Although Mandel is now 59 years old, he still continues his career and is appearing in new projects. Let’s hope that he will be able to work like this for a long time.

So how rich is Howie Mandel? Sources estimate that in 2015 Howie’s net worth is $80 million, most of this this huge sum of money having been gained during his long career as an actor. There is no surprise, that his net worth is high, as Howie is respected among other actors and is often wanted by different producers. If he continues to work in this industry for much longer and maintain his success, there is no doubt that his net worth will grow.

Howie Mandel Net Worth $80 Million

Howie’s childhood was rough as he was expelled from school and had to work as a salesman. Later he became interested in stand-up comedy, and soon noticed that he was quite good at this, as the audiences loved him and gave a lot of praise, so started doing it regularly.. After some time, Howie was noticed by several producers and he accepted a role in the movie called “Gas”. This was the time when Mandel’s net worth really began growing.

In 1982, Mandel got one of his most famous roles in the television show entitled “St. Elsewhere”. While making this show, Howie met such actors as Norman Lloyd, Ed Flanders, Stephen Furst, Ellen Bry and others. After his appearance on this show, the roles came one after another and Howie acted in such projects as “A Fine Mess”, “Walk Like a Man”, “Good Grief” and other television shows and movies. In 2005 Howie received a invitation to become the host of the show called “Deal or No Deal Canada”. This added a lot to the growth of Howie’s net worth. Another big project for Mandel was his own reality show, entitled “Howie Do It”, which premiered in 2009. One year later he became a part of the famous show “America’s Got Talent” and this brought him even more success, as well as adding to his net worth.

In addition to his awards for specific performances, in 2008 Mandel received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and then in 2009, a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto.

While talking about Howie’s personal life, it can be said that he married Terry Soil in 1980 and they have three children. Despite the fame and success that he has, Howie also suffers from some health problems, including attention deficiency syndrome, which fortunately does not appear to affect his career, and he is always able to look happy and make other people content. Finally, Howie Mandel is one of the most hardworking and interesting of personalities. His fans are waiting for him to appear in other shows and movies, so let’s hope that this will happen soon.

#Quote
1 I don't believe anybody's actually reading this magazine online. If they're online, they're looking at porn. [laughter] ABILITY is what they click to when their wife comes into the room: What are you doing? Reading that article from ABILITY, honey.
2 [Of Norman Lloyd]: Norman Lloyd is a great actor and is still around and certainly he was like a really good friend. He could regale us as stores -- He was in 'Spellbound' - Alfred Hitchcock's Spellbound (1945). He had great old Hollywood stories and connections that none of us 'youngins' had the experience. It was just fun to sit around and talk to him and hear the stories, I don't know if he was like a grandfather, he never lend me money or anything like that. He was certainly great to work with him, whenever I bump into him still, it's always a thrill.
3 [on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Norman Lloyd, who played Dr. Daniel Auschlander]: He was very inspirational between scenes, always cheering up everybody, and always smiles when Norman Lloyd passed through!
4 [Who always gave a damn, about adoring Norman Lloyd, who starred in St. Elsewhere (1982)]: I love Norman Lloyd. He is a legend. I have spent hours like a little kid while he regaled us with stories of Hitchcock. He teaches, he entertains. He is a legend!
5 I thought that was funny, but nobody else did. I was mostly entertaining myself, though. My parents both had a great sense of humor, and always laughed a lot. One night, when they were watching Candid Camera, I finally understood what comedy was all about. I heard the laughter on television, I turned around and saw my parents laughing, and that's when I thought: 'This is great. This is what I can do. I'm gonna prank somebody.'
6 [If he joked a lot when he was attending school]: Yes, but nobody thought I was that funny. I was kind of a misfit, actually. When you're young, you want to be like everybody else, and I was like nobody else. I couldn't sit still. I was impulsive. I still am. What is now called a 'talent' did not serve me well as a child. I didn't have friends. I was really an outcast.
7 [Who was leery about Deal or No Deal (2005)'s structure, until Rob first explained to him]: I thought it was a joke. Rob had this project board that looked like it had been made by an eight-year-old doing a school arts and crafts project. It made what I now know to be 'the board.' There were all these numbers and amounts on the board, and he cut out these little cards, which were the cases...I was looking at my buddy who I was sitting with, and I was going, 'This is a joke. I'm waiting for Ashton Kutcher to come around any minute.' Then [Rob] started playing the game with me, and I started getting into the game.
8 I'm from Canada, so Thanksgiving to me is just Thursday with more food. And I'm thankful for that.
