Jo Koy

Town Hall

From filling arenas across the nation to making weekly appearances as a regular guest on Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way from starting in a modest Las Vegas coffee house. His infectiously explosive energy on stage, insightful jokes, and family-inspired humor led Daily Variety to name him one of the “10 Comics to Watch.” Born in Tacoma, Washington, Jo remains amongst a small elite who have ever received a standing ovation on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Jo has also appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, BET’s Comic View, Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza, and appeared in various VH1 I Love the 70's, 80's and 90's episodes. Jo’s Comedy Central special Don’t Make Him Angry aired in January, 2009 and his second Comedy Central special, Lights Out, aired in October 2012. Jo can be seen headlining sold-out arenas around the country. His new podcast, Koy Pond with Jo Koy, has 300k weekly listeners and growing. Most recently, Jo's newest one-hour special "Live From Seattle," released on Netflix in March 2017 to rave reviews, and he is now the host of Inglorious Pranksters on Kevin Hart's new LOL Network.
