A talented Cuban-American comic and actor, Nelson Ascencio went from working the New York City comedy circuit to training in Los Angeles with The Groundlings improv troupe. After breaking into the industry with television guest spots, including in an episode of "The Larry Sanders Show" (HBO, 1992-98), he became a writer and cast member for "MADtv" (Fox, 1995-2009), where he delighted with his many impressions, including a spot-on Ricky Martin. After leaving the series, Ascencio continued touring with his comedy routines and guested on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO, 2000- ) before landing the small but flashy role of Flavius, a member of the style team for contestant Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) in the highly anticipated dystopian thriller "The Hunger Games" (2012). Gifted with both comedic and dramatic chops, Nelson Ascencio proved a fascinating addition to any project in which he appeared.
