Actor Bio

Nico Santos stars as Mateo, Jonah's competition as the other new employee at Cloud 9, on NBC's hit comedy "Superstore."

Santos was born and raised in the Philippines and has assimilated into 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, he became a popular fixture in the Bay Area comedy scene with his acute observations and quirky characters.

Charming audiences with his sarcastic wit and outrageous sensibility, Santos has that rare ability to be crass and snarky while at the same time remaining completely likable.

Santos has written for E! Network's "Fashion Police" and appeared on screen on Showtime's "Pride Comedy Jam," as well as the series "Ground Floor," "Mulaney" and "2 Broke Girls." He was also a regular panelist on "Chelsea Lately."

Santos made his film debut in "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" and most recently filmed "The Clapper," co-starring Ed Helms, Tracy Morgan and Amanda Seyfried.
