Ellen: Howie Mandel Thunder From Down Under & Last High School Pranks


Howie Mandel Shaves His Own Head

Howie walked out squeaky clean and shiny. He said he just shaved and gets asked all the time if he shaves his own head. Mandel does shave himself and he says it’s very easy, just an extension of his cheek.

Mandel went on to joke that he doesn’t understand why people ask bald men if they shave their own head. It’s like walking up to a woman at the pool and asking if she shaves her own legs or her armpits herself. He imagines that is much harder than his head.


He also said that he has missed strips of hair and nicked his scalp before, which means tiny pieces of toilet paper all over his head.

“I’m thinking about just growing bangs back,” he joked. Or maybe bangs in front and mullet in back with a strip of bald in between, because he misses tossing his hair.

Mandel was called the the principal’s office and asked if he was putting an addition on to the library. “No, I’m just getting bids,” he answered. His parents were called, the principal was exasperated, it started funny and ended sadly, Mandel said with a fake hair toss.
