Jo Koy        

Stand-Up Comedian & Regular on "Chelsea Lately"

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.

Koy 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 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 tune in weekly as Koy welcomes friends and fellow comedians to share their hilarious insights on life.

Koy has authored a memoir called "Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo," was selected to host the Golden Globes ceremony held in early 2024, and 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.
