German entertainer and television producer. Biolek held a PhD in law and was an honorary professor at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.

After expulsion from Czechoslovakia in 1946, the Biolek family moved to Waiblingen near Stuttgart, where Biolek's father practiced law again. Biolek was raised a Catholic and was an altar boy. He temporarily joined later the German conservative party CDU.

In 1967, Biolek acted as an assessor in the legal department of the German TV channel ZDF and switched soon to editorial tasks. He became anchor man of the TV show Drehscheibe and produced since 1974 the show Am laufenden Band for Bavaria Film GmbH, together with Rudi Carrell. That led to his career breakthrough. In 1975 with the journalist Dieter Thoma they started the talk show Kölner Treff for the channel WDR in Cologne. Since 1978 he aired his first self-produced and moderated show with the title Bios Bahnhof (Bio's railway station). In the 1980s, commercially unsuccessful shows followed: Bei Bio, Show Bühne and the game show Mensch Meier.

On 10 December 1991, the director Rosa von Praunheim outed Biolek as a gay man among other celebrities on a TV show. Biolek lived with his partner in Cologne and Berlin. In 2010, Biolek suffered brain injuries from a fall on a stair. Scott Ritchie took care of him, and he adopted him. Biolek died on 23 July 2021 in Cologne, aged 87.
