Nico Santos


An immigrant from the Philippines, Nico Santos moved to Oregon and majored in costuming at Southern Oregon University. While working as a wardrobe assistant, someone recommended that he try stand-up comedy.

He then moved to San Francisco to perform stand up and soon became a popular local comic in the Bay Area. It eventually led him to write for E!’s “Fashion Police,” star as Mateo in NBC’s comedy series “Superstore,” and most recently, play the role of Oliver T’Sien in “Crazy Rich Asians.”
