Nico Santos stars as Mateo Liwanag, Jonah's competition as the other new employee at the store, 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.
