Howie Mandel Drops His Pants in Hilarious Interview with Ellen DeGeneres
America’s Got Talent judge Howie Mandel stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and ended up dropping his pants during the interview. It all started when the host brought up how many times he’s been on the show over the years.
Howie Mandel Drops His Pants on ‘The Ellen Show’
DeGeneres revealed to Mandel that he’s been on the show more than any other guest over the years, which prompted Mandel to joke, “Don’t applaud that. That just means I’m free more than anybody else.”
He went on to tell DeGeneres that he would continue to visit her house after her show ends. Mandel expressed his sadness over this being the final season, saying, “I think there’s gonna be a big void in America and on television at the end of this season.”
Mandel proudly wore his Ellen hoodie, and he also shared that he was wearing the underwear DeGeneres gives to her guests. To prove it, he dropped his pants and turned around to show off the striped briefs. The audience applauded as the host broke down in laughter.
“This is not a joke, people. This is serious,” Mandel told the crowd. “She’s leaving, and I’m gonna miss her. And I don’t want to go into Target and buy a three-pack.”
Mandel Talks About His Prank on ‘AGT’ Star Preacher Lawson
Mandel also talked to DeGeneres about his new comedy special Howie Mandel & Friends: Don’t Sneeze on Me, airing on The CW on October 18. The event features former America’s Got Talent comedian Preacher Lawson.
The comedian shared that he once hired Lawson to be his opening act, and he played a prank on him. He invited Lawson to ride on his private plane, and he pretended that the co-pilot was sick and the janitor had to fill in during a storm.
The comedian shared a photo of Lawson’s nervous face as he sat on the plane. Mandel recorded the experience and played it during the special for Lawson to react to. As Mandel said, “Maybe it sounds mean, but I love the guy. We’re good friends, and we’re all alive!”
