Howie Mandel is one of the funniest judges we have ever seen on any talent competition show. But somebody close to him may be coming for his comedy crown, his hilarious wife Terry Mandel! One look at Terry’s Instagram will probably make you cackle as she is not afraid to poke fun at her husband.


Terry Mandel is the Ultimate Jokester When it Comes to Husband Howie Mandel

Terry posted a photo of a baby doll with one eye that was dressed in a skunk costume. Next to this creepy doll sat a pillow with Howie’s face on it dressed up in a bumblebee costume.

“Which is more disturbing?” Terry asked her followers.

This doll was a not-so-subtle nod to Howie’s bumblebee costume that he wore in a previous Instagram video. Howie turned around to show off the back of the costume which has a fake butt on it. Don’t let his sad face fool you. He enjoys making people laugh and getting attention for his bold looks which he spoke about on his podcast recently.

Terry even captured a candid father-son moment with Howie and their son Alex wearing some crazy makeup. We’re going to have to give Howie’s eyeshadow a major thumbs down.

Terry Pushed Howie to Pursue His Television Career

It’s all love between Terry and Howie who have been married for 41 years. Howie often credits Terry for pushing him to pursue a job hosting Deal or No Deal. He was hesitant at first but decided to take the offer which led to a major career breakthrough.

“In 2005, when I got asked to do a game show, there was no comics hosting game shows. And I said no to it three times. My wife told me to take the deal, and I took the deal” Howie said in an interview.

Fans have Terry to thank for supporting Howie as he became a huge television icon over the years before landing a seat on the ‘AGT’ judging panel in 2010. We get to see a good bit of Howie’s antics on the show, but Terry’s Instagram offers an inside look at the 65-year-old comedian’s life.

To display her love for Howie, Terry decided to show off her face mask which is quite literally a perfect replica of Howie’s mouth. This is equally cute and terrifying and we can definitely say it’s #couplegoals.
