When traveling was still a thing, Jo Koy visited the Philippines and took his latest show around the islands. While selling out multiple shows at the Mall of Asia Arena, he also filmed his latest Netflix special, Jo Koy: In His Elements. The special spotlights the Filipino culture, food, and fellow Filipino talen.
Jo Koy pays it forward and invited three local comics to open for him at the Mall of Asia Arena. Imagine finding out Jo Koy was your own open mic and likes your material then invites you to perform at his. He gave them the spotlight and an experience they’ll never forget.
He shares who he is on a world stage while introducing us to other Filipino talent. The theme song to the special, Kayumanggi was produced by chart-topping producer Illmind and with vocals by local artists. Jo Koy carries the Philippines wherever he goes. He’s proud of his culture, but especially his mom. It is easy to relate to his stories and laugh at the similar situations we find ourselves in. How many time have we been told to look with our eyes and not or mouth? Even if you’re not Filipino, everyone has their crazy family stories and traditions that we all understand.
