Fresh off the heels of multiple sold out shows across America, Jo Koy returns to the Treasure Island Theatre June 8 at 7:30 p.m. Additionally due to high demand, a second show has been added and will take place at 10 p.m.
The comedian, who got his start producing his own shows at the historic Huntridge Theater, put his skills to good use producing his third comedy special “Jo Koy: Live from Seattle.” After the special debuted on Netflix in 2017, Koy performed 11 sold-out shows in Honolulu, with more than 23,000 tickets sold. To celebrate the accomplishment, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed Nov. 24 as “Jo Koy Day.”
Koy rose to prominence with performances on “The Tonight Show” and “Comic View” and began touring relentlessly, on USO and Def Jam Comedy tours, on Carlos Mencia’s “Punisher” tour and with Chelsea Handler and Jon Lovitz, and finally on his own. Since then, he has had two specials on Comedy Central, “Don’t Make Him Angry” in 2009 and “Lights Out” in 2012. Also a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately,” Koy appeared on more than 100 episodes from 2009 through the finale.
Koy currently hosts his weekly podcast “The Koy Pond” on Podcast One. He can also be seen on the Kevin Hart & Lionsgate platform LaughOutLoud.com as the host of the unscripted series “Inglorious Pranksters.”
Koy’s stage name comes from the Filipino term “Jokoy” which means joker and was his childhood nickname.
Tickets are available starting at $58.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.
