Madbouly was born in Cairo and started acting at seven years old following the death of his father. His family needed the money. Later he joined Fatma Rushdi's troupe of actors before joining the theatre of renowned Lebanese actor George Abyad.
Madbouly had an extensive career and is considered one of the greatest in the history of Egyptian and Arabic entertainment industry. He wrote, directed and acted in numerous plays, films and TV roles. His unique comedy style of depicting heartbroken old men was called Madboulism, and is much imitated by other performers from the middle east region. Adel Emam is probably the best known performer to use the Madboulism style.
Abdel Moneim Madbouly died in Cairo in 2006 of congestive heart failure.
