Nico Santos was born and raised in the Philippines and now calls the US of A home. Though fresh off the boat, he has assimilated to American culture rather quickly by living in California by way of Portland, Oregon. He started doing stand-up in San Francisco. In just a short amount of time, Nico conquered the Bay Area comedy scene with his acute observations and quirky characters. He touches on his race, family and the queer dynamic among other things. Charming audiences all across the country with his sharp, sarcastic wit and outrageous sensibility, Nico has that rare ability to be crass and snarky while at the same time remaining completely likable. An absolute entertaining blend of silliness, sass and style. The SF Guardian has called him “perfectly inappropriate”, continually blurring the lines of what one might expect from him.
He has written for E! Network’s Fashion Police and appeared on television for Showtime’s Pride Comedy Jam, Ground Floor, Mulaney and 2 Broke Girls. He was also a regular panelist on Chelsea Lately and made his film debut in Mall Cop: Blart 2. Currently, Nico is known for playing Mateo in NBC’s new hit comedy Superstore with America Ferrera, which has just been renewed for a second season. You can find him on Facebook and follow him on Twitter and Instagram under @nicosantoscomic.
Out & In, the brainchild and baby of host Nick Sahoyah, is dedicated to bringing the best queer comedy to the masses.
