Las Vegas— Hot on the heels of sold out shows and his smash hit Netflix special, Las Vegas’ home grown superstar comedian Jo Koy makes his return to the Treasure Island Theatre September 1 at 9 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,” which debuted on Netflix earlier this year. The highly-rated special has garnered Koy new fans from around the world, but Vegas audiences have been selling out the Treasure Island showroom for years, clamoring for impressions and stories, uproariously focused around his family, especially his mother and son. New and longtime fans should expect new material when Koy returns September 1.
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. Koy has had two specials on Comedy Central, “Don’t Make Him Angry” in 2009 and “Lights Out” in 2012. He was also a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately,” appearing on more than 100 episodes from 2009 through the finale, and appears on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix project “Chelsea Does.”
He also voices several caricatures on “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast including a Japanese competitive food eater, a P.F. Chang’s host and Bung Lu Soo, an aspiring singer. Koy also has his own Carolla Digital podcast, “The Koy Pond.”
Koy’s stage name comes from the Filipino term “Jokoy” which means joker and was his childhood nickname.
