Brazilian comedian, talk show host, author, theatrical producer, director, actor, painter and musician.

Soares was born in Rio de Janeiro. After being educated in Switzerland and United States, Soares returned to Rio and worked at TV Rio in 1958, writing and performing in comedy shows for the station. In 1970, Soares started working at Rede Globo.

In 1988, Soares moved to SBT, where he hosted a talk-show, Jô Soares Onze e Meia ("Jô Soares Eleven Thirty"), until 1999. In 2000, Soares took his show's format (very similar to David Letterman's) back to Rede Globo, where it was then called Programa do Jô, and hosted the program until 2016.

His first novel O Xangô de Baker Street was written in 1995 and has already been published in several other countries; it was made into a film in 2000. He has put out various jazz CDs. He has also produced many plays including a recent version of Richard III.

He is overweight and has had many marriages.
