Biography

RENEE SANTOS shines in the new stand-up comedy special “PRIDE COMEDY JAM,” featuring 6 up-and-coming gay comics on Showtime. The network touts the special as a “...outrageous ensemble of hip and hilarious queer comics, featuring the witty anecdotes of Renee Santos.”

Santos is a regular on the Los Angeles comedy scene performing consistently at local clubs, including the Comedy Store, The Laugh Factory, and the Hollywood Improv. In 2012 she took her funny on tour to the East Coast and many Colleges Nationwide and in May of 2013 she joined Wanda Sykes and an amazing line-up of talented entertainment on Olivia Cruises 40th Anniversary Punta Cana Resort Vacation in the Dominican Republic. The ball continued rolling for Renee in 2013 booking a starring role in the show “Stand-up and Deliver” featured on Jennifer Lopez’s new network NuvoTV Tuesday nights at 10pm.

Although she has a natural funny bone, Santos has been working hard at her craft for several years both on stage and on-camera. She recently appeared on the Jerry Bruckheimer produced CBS sci-fi series “Eleventh Hour”, Showtime Network’s “Californication” starring David Duchovny, and has a commercial for the fast-food chain Wendy’s currently airing nationwide. Her credits also include roles in several celebrated indie films, including "30 is the New 12" which first earned high praise at Outfest Film Festival in 2010, and “Shooting April” which was featured in two festivals and was named ‘Favorite Movie of the Month’ by Film Stage Magazine.

In addition, her voice-over abilities have landed her regular gigs on the ‘looping’ scene, including numerous Disney projects and the NBC hit-series “Brothers and Sisters” for its last two seasons. Santos is no stranger to improvisation and sketch comedy either, beginning as an active member of Emerson College's Comedy Sketch Group in Boston and now sharing her characterizations on the stages of the infamous Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in Los Angeles. Currently, she is in pre-production on her all-new 1 hr Stand-up Comedy Special shooting at The El Portal Theater in Los Angeles.
