Remember the path of Joe Soares
Jose Eugenio Soares was born on January 16, 1938 in Rio de Janeiro. The only child of businessman Orlando Heitor Soares and Mercedes Lil Soares from Paraíba, at the age of twelve, he moved with his family to Europe, where he thought about pursuing a diplomatic career.
He studied at famous schools such as Colégio de São Bento, in Rio, Colégio São José, in Petrópolis, and Lycée Jaccard, in Lausanne, Switzerland, but his love for theater was higher.
In 1956, Jô made his television debut in the cast of “Praça da Alegria”, on Record TV, where he stayed for nearly 10 years. In 1959, he played an American role in the film “The Man from Sputnik” directed by Carlos Manga and starred in an Oscar. In the same year, he wrote for a program on Continental Television called “TV Mistério”, in which Paulo Otran and Tonya Carreiro co-star.
His first comedy on TV Globo took place only in 1970, with “Do the Humor, Don’t Make War”, which became a hit with short jokes and dry storylines.
His career as a presenter started after he left Jô Globo and went to work for SBT, in 1987. He starred in the humorous film “Veja o Gordo” and soon embarked on his big dream of presenting an interview show in talk show format. In 1988, “Jô Soares Onze e Meia” was born. The program ran until 1999.
In 2000, he returned to Globo as a presenter of the popular “Programa do Jô”, which was on the air until 2016.
