Stars as Mike on FX comedy ‘Dave’ (2020)
Andrew Santino portrays the recurring character of Mike on the new FX comedy Dave, starring Lil Dicky (aka Dave Burd). He features for a total of 3 episodes; The Gander (episode 1), Dave’s First (episode 2), and Urban & Suburban Vermin (episode 9).
Dave, based on the life of rapper and comedian Lil Dicky, is directed by Greg Mottola and the man himself, Dave Burd. The semi-autobiography shows the journey of a rising rapper, who believes he is destined to become a hip hop sensation.
FX released a statement, where Dave Burd said:
I’m so thankful for everyone who made this possible, it really is what I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. I love making people laugh, it’s my favorite thing ever. And even though I’m still fully in love with and committed to my career as a rapper, I’m excited to write jokes that don’t need to rhyme every time. Ugh, that rhymed.
The plot as per IMDb reads: “A neurotic mid 20’s suburbanite’s convinced he’s destined to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. Now he’s got to prove it to everyone else. Yawn.”
The main cast includes Lil Dicky as Dave and Taylor Misiak as Dave’s girlfriend, Ally. Likewise, Christine Ko plays Emma, Dave’s old friend & Ally’s roommate. Moreover, Travis Bennett is Elz, Dave’s childhood friend, while Lil Dicky’s real-life hype-man GaTa is Dave’s confidence booster.

Does Andrew Santino Have a Wife?
Andrew Santino is a largely lowkey person when it comes to his romantic life. It's unclear whether or not he's a married man, but this hasn't stopped fans from getting curious about his (potential) wife.
Although we cannot confirm Santino's relationship status, what we do know is the fact that the comedian loves making gay jokes about himself. One such instance was when he bantered getting in a relationship with fellow comedian partner Chris D'Elia.
Perhaps the actor will shed further light on his love life in the days to come. For now, we can only speculate if he's dating a girlfriend or even married to a wife in secret. Until he opens up about his relationship status to the media, it's always going to be pure guesswork.
