Pippo Santonastaso (born 25 May 1936) is an Italian actor and comedian.

Life and career[edit]

Born in Castel San Giovanni, Piacenza, Santonastaso created an original comic duo with his younger brother Mario (b. 1937), performing successfully in their region and soon also on television, in several RAI variety shows.[1] Following his television success, in the second half of the 1970s he started a parallel career of character actor in numerous comedy films, several of them as sidekick of Adriano Celentano.[1] He was main actor just once, in the commedia sexy all'italiana Geometra Prinetti selvaggiamente Osvaldo.[1][2]
