Ariel Pagtalonia Manalo (born February 12, 1966 in Manila, Philippines), better known as Jose Manalo, is a Filipino actor and comedian. He is best known for appearing regularly at the noon-time variety show Eat Bulaga! on GMA Network.


Manalo appeared in the afternoon soap Valiente as one of the supporting characters.[1] He later started appearing in behind-the-scene antics as a production assistant on Eat Bulaga!.[2] He then became a Comedian. His short-time friend Wally Bayola was also entering show business and they became a comic duo.

This was his second TV show on TV5 after the show Boyoyongs which formerly aired in 1992. Jose Manalo and EB Babe Mergene got a controversy and Manalo left his own family after that.

In 2011, Manalo recently returned to sitcom via his new TV5 comedy show, The Jose & Wally Show Starring Vic Sotto, with his co-stars Wally Bayola, Vic Sotto & Jimmy Santos. Manalo also worked at 's movies with Vic Sotto like Pak! Pak! My Dr. Kwak! and the MMFF film entry Enteng Ng Ina Mo. Last April 2011, Jose Manalo also appeared for the first time in ABS-CBN's shows like The Buzz and ASAP.
