Howie started his career on a dare in Toronto in 1979. Since then, he has remained a constant force in show business. He is executive producer of many shows through his production company Alevy Productions, which has produced the series Take It All and Howie Do It for NBC, Deal With It for TBS and Mobbed for FOX, among others. He currently serves as a judge on NBC's hit summer talent competition series, America's Got Talent.
Howie received an Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Host For A Reality or Reality-Competition Program” for Deal or No Deal and a Daytime Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Game Show Host” for the syndicated version of the show. Howie has become a mainstay of the American comedy scene. In 2009, Howie 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. Howie’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.
Howie lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Terry, and their three children.
