As he did a year ago, comedian Jo Koy will perform two shows in Kent.

His Just Kidding World Tour returns to the accesso ShoWare Center for performances at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16 and Monday, Feb. 17. The second show was recently added.

Koy sold out two shows in February 2018 at the ShoWare Center, which brought more than 11,000 people to the city-owned arena.

Tickets are on sale at accessoshowarecenter.com or the ShoWare Center box office, 625 W. James St., from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Prices range from $49.50 to $179.50.

Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated Netflix special, “Comin’ In Hot,” Koy is on the first leg of his Just Kidding World Tour, and has also announced shows in Australia and New Zealand in addition to the added North American dates. The tour will feature all new material.

Koy, who grew up in Tacoma, has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy sells out theaters and arenas around the world, and has been breaking ticket sale records with his infectious and explosive energy on-stage. He pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, with material that has universal appeal.

In 2018, Koy was given the prestigious “Stand-Up Comedian Of The Year” award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. In 2019, the comedian reached number one on the Billboard Charts for his stand-up comedy album, “Live From Seattle,” which was filmed at the Moore Theatre.
