Born in Tacoma, Washington, to an American father and Filipina mother, Jo Koy credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. Her encouragement led to a Las Vegas coffee house, then a move to Los Angeles and finally a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2005. Jo became one of the select few to ever receive a standing ovation on the show.
From filling clubs across the nation to being seen weekly as a regular guest on the TV show, Chelsea Lately, Jo Koy has come a long way ... He has appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, BET’s Comic View, Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza, and his Comedy Central TV special Don’t Make Him Angry, which aired in 2009, is now available on DVD.
Jo's infectiously explosive energy on stage, insightful jokes and family inspired humor cross all boundaries and led Daily Variety to name him one of the “10 Comics to Watch.”
