Legendary Brazilian Humorist Jô Soares’s Cause of Death


We received the most devastating news on August 5, 2022, about a Brazilian comedian, talk show host, author, and musician who passed away. Jô Soares’s cause of death is still unrevealed. May he rest in peace.

He was born on January 16, 1938, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He got educated in two countries, Switzerland and United States, and after that Soares decided to return to Rio in 1958. His full name was José Eugénio Soares.

It was in the late 1950s when he started his career by acting in film and television, as a screenwriter and actor, notably at the Grande Teatro da TV-Tupi that led to achieving greater success.

We are sad to announce to you that one of the biggest stars of Brazilian television has passed away. Jô Soares's cause of death is unrevealed.

Almost ten years after that, he arrived at TV Globo with the program “Do Humor Don’t Make War”, which he wrote and interpreted. “Viva o Gordo” was the main event that he rose to fame and became famous.

In “Viva o Gordo“, Jô Soares built some of the most popular characters of his career, such as Captain Gay, the superhero who beat himself by the weak and oppressed, and Reizinho, the tiny monarch, ridiculous, to arms with problems common to those of his country.

His legendary talent and unique personality led to beating prejudices and assuming global humor, from a reality subject to censorship. In that program, he had an archive page that bravely mocked “the politics and customs” of a monitored country.

The program called “Viva o Gordo” premiered in 1981, celebrated cues such as “Shut up, Baptista!” and “Bótimo, better than good, better than great!”, from the bereaved brother Carmelo, pronounced in a Brazil still under military dictatorship.

Soares became well-known after this show. His talent was discovered after participating in this program

Brazil without Jô Soares is a Brazil in black and white. No joy, no strength, no good humor… the comedy in the country is one before and another after. For all that was done by Jo and for all those he cast into the world because of his generosity.”
