O Tal Canal - Herman José - Netflix

Hermann Joseph von Krippahl ComM, known as Herman José (born 19 March 1954 in Lisbon, Portugal), is a well-known Portugal-based German comedian, though virtually unknown abroad. His career has focused on television. His mother is Portuguese and his father was German. He is in fact a German citizen: he never acquired dual citizenship, first so he could avoid conscription and the Portuguese Colonial War (1961–74) and secondly because he said he was not interested. He went to Lisbon's German school Deutsche Schule Lissabon for all his schooling and is fluent in Portuguese, German, English, French, and Spanish. He lives in Azeitão, Setúbal, and keeps houses in Lisbon and Vilamoura, Algarve.

On December 29, 2003, Herman José was accused of various child sexual abuse offences connected with the Casa Pia scandal. In May 2003 he was summoned to appear before the Criminal Court, accused of abusing an adolescent. However, he was able to prove that he was working for the SIC television channel in Brazil at the time. The judge, Ana Teixeira e Silva, dismissed the case.
