The show is based on people's reactions to pranks. Howie Mandel acts as the host and prankster. He is seen in different disguises throughout the show, interacting with unsuspecting people. The pranks are designed to be funny, but not offensive. Howie Mandel is known for his comedic style, and he brings that to the show.

DJ Ravi Drums is another key member of the show. He is the resident DJ and Drummer, and his music is used to accentuate the pranks.

He has worked with many famous musicians, including Ricky Martin, The Black Eyed Peas, and Sting.

The show's first season premiered on January 9, 2009, and ran for 13 episodes. The second season, however, was canceled due to low ratings. Despite this, the show has gained a cult following over the years.

Each episode of Howie Do It typically features three pranks. The pranks are varied and range from silly to outrageous. Some pranks are designed to embarrass people or catch them off guard.

One of the key elements of the show is Mandel's disguises. He often wears wigs, makeup, and prosthetics to completely transform his appearance.
