Masaru Hamaguchi (濱口 優, Hamaguchi Masaru, born 1972, Konohana-ku, Osaka) is a Japanese comedian and actor.
Together with his screen partner, Shinya Arino, Hamaguchi is part of the comic duo, Yoiko.
He is well known for his fishing skills learned while doing the variety show Ikinari Ougon Densetsu jp:いきなり!黄金伝説. Even though he has seasickness, he persevered and managed to catch all the special fish in the region required in the show. And whenever he was about to eat an item of seafood, he would always look up and give thanks for the food needed to sustain his strength. One of his favorite tag lines is "Tottadō!" when he finally attains something.
