At a young age, Joey’s parents divorced. He studied architecture at the National University in Manila, but would then start his entertainment career as a disc jockey. He worked at around a dozen radio stations before broadening his career in entertainment. He was an announcer for all stations of the ABS-CBN Corporation, as well as other stations. His first television break was on the gag show “OK Lang”.

In 1975, he was invited to become the co-host of the variety show “Discorama”, and in turn he co-opted his former co-stars at “OK Lang”, Tito and Vic The trio would then do comedy segments in the shows as well as song parodies, and eventually they would release songs and albums based on their segments. They then became part of the sitcom “Iskul Bukol” which would earn them popularity as comedians and increase their net worth significantly. They were invited to be the host of the noontime show “Eat Bulaga!”, plus being offered numerous other projects. “Eat Bulaga” has since become the longest running television show in the Philippines.

While the trio continued to work together, Joey was also given solo projects. He was a part of the sitcom “Joey and Son” in which he played father to a young boy played by Ian Veneracion. He was also a gag performer in “TODAS’. Other television shows he was a part of include “Let’s Go Crazy”, “Apple Pie”, and “Patis”, but he did film projects during this time too. In the 1990s, he was a part of “Bangers”, “Pipti-pipti”, and “Takot ako sa Darling Ko”. Then, “Eat Bulaga’s” popularity has led Joey to make appearances in other shows, including “Startalk”, “Mel and Joey”, and “Wow Mali”. He also wrote an entertainment column for the Manila Bulletin, and is a judge of the reality series “StarStruck”. His net worth continued to climb.

In 2006, de Leon returned to songwriting in releasing “Itaktak Mo”, which was an answer to rival host song “Boom Tarat Tarat”. The song would become widely popular, being requested on radio stations throughout the following year, so this led him to create more songs such as “Kagat Labi”, “Walang Daya”, and “Ba ba Boom”.

In 2008, he resigned from the Manila Bulletin and now writes with The Philippine Star.

For his personal life, it is known that Joey has been married twice, firstly to actress Daria Ramirez and they had two children. His second wife is Eileen Macapagal (m. 1982) and they have three children. He also has four grandchildren.
