Description

With a combination of his sarcastic wit, outrageous sensibility and snarky commentary, Nico Santos has the rare ability to charm every audience he encounters. Santos was most recently seen in Warner Brother’s “Crazy Rich Asians” alongside an all-Asian cast including Constance Wu, Henry Golding and Ken Jeong. The film instantly became a cultural phenomenon, as well the highest-grossing romantic comedy in the past decade. He is currently starring as Mateo in the fourth season of NBC’s hit comedy “Superstore.”Born and raised in the Philippines, Santos assimilated to American culture rather quickly by living in California by way of Portland, Oregon. He started doing stand-up comedy in San Francisco, and in just a short amount of time had become a popular fixture in the Bay Area comedy scene with his acute observations and quirky characters.Previously, Santos has written for E! Network’s “Fashion Police” and appeared on screen in Showtime’s “Pride Comedy Jam” as well as the series “Ground Floor,” “Mulaney” and “2 Broke Girls.” In 2015, he made his film debut in “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” and in 2017 was seen in “The Clapper,” co-starring Ed Helms, Tracy Morgan and Amanda Seyfried. He was also a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately.”
