As one of today’s premiere stand-up comics Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. The comedian, who pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, sells-out arenas and theaters across the world.
In 2017, Koy broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at 23,000 tickets and 11 sold-out shows at The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu. In response, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed November 24th as “Jo Koy Day.” The comedian continued his record breaking streak by being the only comedian to sell out 6 shows at The Warfield in San Francisco. He then broke the attendance record at Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg with 4 sold-out shows. In 2019, Koy sold-out 5 shows at the San Diego Civic Theatre, the most consecutive sold-out shows for a comedian. He recently became the only comedian to sell 17,000+ tickets, over 30 shows (in one year) at the Brea Improv.
He was given the prestigious “Stand-Up Comedian Of The Year” award at the 2018 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. He has had four highly rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central and Netflix. His 2019 Netflix special, Comin’ In Hot is currently streaming world-wide. Koy is on a mission to educate the masses on how to raise a millennial, the intricacies of Filipino traditions, and more!
In 2019, the comedian reached #1 on the Billboard Charts for his stand-up comedy album, Live From Seattle. H e can also be heard on his weekly podcast, The Koy Pond with Jo Koy by Starburns Audio. Listeners can dive in each week as Koy welcomes friends and fellow comedians to share their hilarious insights on life.
Koy has appeared on over 140 episodes of Chelsea Lately as a season regular roundtable guest. Other appearances include: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Late Show with James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, Lights Out with David Spade, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, Beat Bobby Flay, The Breakfast Club, Celebrity Page TV, World’s Funniest Fails and Sean In The Wild.
Today, the comedian tours around the world on his Just Kidding World Tour with ALL NEW material.
Comedian Jo Koy has a few things he always takes with him when he hits the road. From his gold rolex and his Gucci luggage to his Ralph Lauren spandex and Nike Air Sneakers, Jo shows us everything he can’t live without.
Full Size Run is Sole Collector’s weekly sneaker talk and debate show featuring co-hosts Brendan Dunne, Matt Welty, and Trinidad James, and this week they’re joined by Filipino-American comedian Jo Koy on the heels of his new Netflix special, Comin’ in Hot, to talk about why Filipinos are obsessed with sneakers, why he loves Air Jordans, and he roasts Michael Jordan’s worst outfits.
Jo Koy’s teenage son would be understandably embarrassed to hear how his confusion about puberty is served up in this comedy special, shot in Hawaii. (Anticipating the kid’s reaction, Koy incorporates that into his act as well: “Does everything have to be a joke, dad? Come on, seriously.”) But Koy is an equal-opportunity mortifier, and everyone in his orbit is a target — including the audience.
