About Sophie Santos

From Sophie Santos, one of the most exciting emerging voices in comedy, comes an honestly funny memoir about the cringeworthy and hilarious journey of coming of age and into her own. Sophie’s debut book, The One You Want To Marry (And Other Identities I’ve Had), hits shelves October 1st.

Here’s the book synopsis: The only child of a perpetually transferring Filipino-Spanish US Army officer and a spitfire nurse, Sophie Santos spent her early years starting over again and again—and accumulating her fair share of anxieties. Growing up in 99.6 percent white communities, where girls had to learn to flash Vaseline-capped smiles before they’d be considered real women, Sophie adapted. Determined to fit in, she transformed from a tomboy misfit into a hormone-crazed beauty pageant contestant and a southern sorority girl, among other personalities. She nailed each role she took on, not shockingly, but nothing seemed to fit her true self. In her twenties, floundering and locked in her bedroom with lesbian YouTube clips playing on repeat, Sophie began to understand that her true self might be more tomboy misfit than southern belle. That realization set her off on a journey that led her through an unexpected lesbian puberty and eventually toward a New York comedy career.

Sophie is now a New York based comedian, writer and host of The Lesbian Agenda, a critically-acclaimed satirical comedy show featuring up-and-coming LGBTQ+ standups and performers such as Sydnee Washington (Comedy Central) and Jessica Henderson (Shrill). You can also hear Sophie in the new Audible Original Hit Job alongside Pete Davidson and Keke Palmer, and this summer as Emily in Hot White Heist directed by Alan Cumming. She has written for shows on Bravo and MTV, appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and The Kennedy Center.
