Dedé was raised among circus performers in a Roma family. He and his brother Dino Santana (deceased in 2010) acted in television as a comedic couple named Maloca e Bonitão in 1965.

Later, Dedé joined the comedian Renato Aragão and created another comedian duo that later with the addition of Mussum and Zacarias, would become the famous Brazilian quartet Os Trapalhões, which with its TV series (aired by Rede Globo) and movies, gained national fame in the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s.His brother Dino Santana acted in Trapalhões's movies and series as a supporting actor. After Zacarias and Mussum deaths (respectively in 1990 and 1994), the famous group came to an end.

Dedé then had little participations on television, like in the Chico Anysio's Escolinha do Professor Raimundo (Portuguese for Teacher Raimundo's Little School) and acted was a teacher in the TV series Escolinha do Barulho (Portuguese for Noisy little School, aired by Rede Record), in the late 1990s.

He returned to TV, along with his brother, in 2005, in the TV series Dedé e o Comando Maluco (Portuguese for Dedé and the Mad Commando, aired by SBT), in association with manager Beto Carrero.
