Jo Koy is unlike any other American standup comedian working today. It doesn't take much for him to be considered one of the funniest people around. His lack of political correctness in his humor has helped him remain popular. He is less interested in discussing current events or Hollywood rumors and more in the classic art of comic storytelling. It's easy to see why Jo Koy's popularity has risen in recent years.
Jo Koy, whose birth name was Joseph Glenn Herbert, got his start in the comedy business in a Las Vegas club. After his performance at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, he booked the Huntridge Theatre and began advertising his own show. His breakthrough came after making an appearance on ComicView on BET. He became famous after winning the Showtime at the Apollo competition and making appearances on several comedy specials. After garnering a standing ovation during his 2005 appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," he became widely known.
Following that, Jo Koy continued to sell out major venues around the United States. Specifically, in 2017, he sold more tickets than any other performer in the history of Honolulu's Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall. At the 2018 Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, he was named "Standup Comedian of the Year." In addition, he has sold out the San Diego Civic Theatre five times in 2019, more than any other comedian has ever done in a row there. He just broke the record for the highest number of tickets sold by a comedian at the Brea Improv with 30 shows in just one year. He also reached #1 on the 2019 Billboard Charts for his standup comedy album, "Live From Seattle."
In 2022, Jo Koy made history by starring in "Easter Sunday," a film he proudly claims to be the first of Filipino representation in Hollywood. The movie was a massive success and solidified Jo Koy's multi-media star status. Catch him and all his hilariousness this Saturday, January 7, at Houston's Toyota Center.
