Nico Santos            

Actor Known for "Superstore" & "Crazy Rich Asians"

With his sarcastic wit, outrageous sensibility, and snarky commentary, Nico Santos has the rare ability to charm every audience he encounters.

He starred as Mateo Liwanag in NBC’s hit comedy “Superstore” and was nominated for the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for this role. He can also be seen in Netflix's Happiness for Beginners and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Santos was part of Warner Brothers’ film Crazy Rich Asians alongside an all-Asian cast, including Constance Wu, Henry Golding, and Ken Jeong. The film instantly became a cultural phenomenon and is the highest-grossing romantic comedy in the past decade.

Born and raised in the Philippines, Santos moved to the United States when he was sixteen. He started doing stand-up comedy in San Francisco and became a popular fixture in the Bay Area comedy scene with his acute observations and quirky characters.

Previously, Santos wrote 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.” He made his film debut in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and was seen in The Clapper, co-starring Ed Helms, Tracy Morgan, and Amanda Seyfried.
