According to TMZ, Mandel was at the coffee shop with his wife and some friends when he passed out and fell over. He was placed on a cement bench and appeared to be awake and alert by the time emergency personnel arrived. He was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Several hours after the incident, Mandel took to Twitter to share an update on his condition and to thank fans for their support.

“I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar. I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!” Mandel wrote.

The news was met with relief from fans who were concerned about the 65-year-old comedian.


Howie Mandel rose to fame in the ’80s due to his role on St. Elsewhere. He went on to star in numerous movies, but is likely best known for his roles as host of the television game show Deal or No Deal and as one of four judges on America’s Got Talent.
