Comedian Jo Koy will perform at the Peabody Auditorium on Sunday, Jan. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Coming off the highly anticipated Universal Pictures film, “Easter Sunday,” and his recent Netflix special, “Jo Koy: Live from The Los Angeles Forum,” the comedian has announced his Jo Koy World Tour.
Koy started 2022 with a bang, selling out the Climate Pledge Arena (over 14,000 tickets) in his hometown of Seattle. Today, he continues breaking sales records at some of the most prestigious venues around the world including Mall of Asia Arena (Manila, Philippines), The Forum (Los Angeles), Coca-Cola Arena (Dubai), ICC Theatre (Sydney, Australia), and Madison Square Garden (New York City). In 2017, Koy broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at 23,000 tickets and 11 sold-out shows at The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu. In response, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed Nov. 24 as “Jo Koy Day.” The Jo Koy World Tour will feature all new material.
As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing in a Las Vegas coffee house. Koy’s uniquely relatable comedy pulls inspiration from his colorful family, reaching all kinds of people, and has been translated into sold-out arenas around the world.
His highly anticipated fourth Netflix stand-up special, “Live From The Los Angeles Forum” premiered globally Sept. 13. The special is a follow up to his 2019 Netflix special, “Comin’ In Hot.” Koy has already had four highly rated and successful stand-up specials on Comedy Central and Netflix. In June 2020, the comedian released his first variety special, “Jo Koy: In His Elements” on Netflix in which Koy brings the laughs and beats to Manila, spotlighting local culture in a one-of-a-kind show featuring Filipino-American comedians, DJs and B-boys.
Koy recently starred in the Universal Pictures film “Easter Sunday,” set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday. The comedy is based on Koy's life experiences and stand-up comedy. The film is currently available on-demand, Blu-ray & DVD.
