BORN in Bratislava, Július Satinský studied drama at the Academy of Performing and Dramatic Arts. He started his acting career alongside Milan Lasica in 1959 and they performed in the Divadlo na Korze theatre until the late 1960s.

After 1968, the duo was banned from working in Slovakia and performed for two years in a cabaret in the Czech city of Brno. When they were allowed to appear on stage again in 1982, they moved to the newly established Štúdio S theatre, of which Lasica was director.

Satinský was not only known as an actor and comedian but also as a radio and TV host, a lecturer who travelled around Slovakia to discuss questions about democracy and civil society and as an author of memoirs about his childhood and student years in Bratislava as well as of feuilletons. On January 2, 2002, he received the state award Pribina Cross of First Class for his lifetime contribution to Slovak art and support for civic society.
