TV Personality and Talk Show Host

2:30 p.m.

For Howie Mandel, TV personality and talk-show host, cleaning is more than a passion—it’s an obsession! Mandel, a self-confessed germaphobe and hypochondriac, has battled his fears all his life, going so far as to sport a bald head because, in his words, “This feels so streamlined and so clean.” Mandel may fear germs, but he certainly does not fear the spotlight! Top off your week with this Q&A with ISSA Executive Director John Barrett and Mandel and a stand-up show! Mandel’s wit and charm are infectious (pun intended) as he takes a humorous look at his own obsession with cleaning and shares experiences from his varied and successful career. Plus, several lucky winners will go home with a Golden Ticket featuring unique Dallas, TX, experiences—which you can take advantage of in Dallas, during the ISSA/INTERCLEAN Trade Show and ISSA Convention in 2018!
