JO KOY

Comedian

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee
house. As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy sells-out comedy clubs & theaters
across the nation with his infectious and explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls
inspiration from his family, specifically his son, with material that has universal appeal.
In November 2017, the comedian broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at
The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu with 11 sold-out shows and over 23,000 tickets
sold. Celebrating this accomplishment, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed November
24th as “Jo Koy Day.” Koy is also the only comedian to sell out 6 shows at The Warfield in San
Francisco, he broke the attendance record at Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg with 4
sold-out shows, and is one of the few acts to sell-out 2 shows at The Florida Theatre in
Jacksonville, FL.
Today, the comedian tours around the world and is currently on his Break The Mold Tour. He
can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show . He also hosts
the weekly podcast “The Koy Pond with Jo Koy” on Podcast One. Additionally, Koy can be seen
on the Kevin Hart & Lionsgate platform LaughOutLoud.com as the host of the un-scripted series
Inglorious Pranksters . For more info on the podcast and tour dates, please visit: Jokoy.com.
In 2005, Koy had the opportunity of a lifetime when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay
Leno. He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show. Since
then, Koy has had two highly rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central, Don’t
Make Him Angry and Lights Out . In 2017, Koy released his 3rd stand-up special, J o Koy: Live
from Seattle as a Netflix Original.
