Special Event: Nico Santos

Born and raised in the Philippines, Actor and Comedian Nico Santos began his entertainment career performing stand-up in San Francisco, becoming a popular fixture in the Bay Area comedy scene. He is best known for portraying “Oliver T’sien” in the film Crazy Rich Asians, as well “Mateo” on Superstore, which ran for six seasons on NBC. The latter garnered him back-to-back Critic’s Choice Awards nominations for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2019 and 2020, as well as a Hollywood Critic’s Association award for Best Supporting Actor in a Broadcast Network or Cable Series, Comedy in 2021.

Nico can be currently seen stress eating carbs on his couch watching trashy TV while contemplating the delicate nature of our existence.
