Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. This year, the comedian broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at The Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu, Hawaii with 11 sold-out shows and more than 23,000 tickets. In 2018, the comedian will launch his Break The Mold tour.

Koy can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show.” Koy also hosts the weekly podcast, “The Koy Pond” on Podcast One. In 2005, Koy said he had the opportunity of a lifetime, when he performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show.

In 2017, Koy released his latest and third stand-up special, “Jo Koy: Live from Seattle” as a Netflix Original. Koy has also appeared on more than 100 episodes of “Chelsea Lately” as a season regular roundtable guest. Other appearances include: “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “@Midnight with Chris Hardwick,” “Spike TV’s Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live,” “Celebrity Page TV,” “The Joy Behar Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.”
