From funding his first Netflix special in Seattle to filming a fourth comedy special, Jo Koy is now taking the funny to the City of Angels at The Forum. The special comes after the debut Jo Koy: Live From Seattle, followed by Jo Koy: Comin’ In Hot in 2019 and Jo Koy: In His Elements in 2020. It's set to premiere in 2022 as filming takes place early next year. Before then, catch Jo Koy hosting Metal Shop Masters Netflix and look out for his upcoming projects like the film Easter Sunday and ABC sitcom Josep.
Jo Koy is currently on his World Tour all over the U.S. selling out arena and stadiums. If you haven't seen him yet out on the road, don't miss out! After tour, he continues to have a busy schedule ahead as Joseph is in production where it'll follow the life of a hardworking Filipino-American nurse. Written and executive produced by showrunner Steve Joe, Josep will also see its titular character navigating dating, fatherhood and his mother moving in with him. We also caught a BTS sneak peek of the Easter Sunday cast when filming started earlier this year. The film which he's producing and starring in will loosely be based on his life experiences and an Easter Sunday celebration. We'll be seeing a lot of Jo Koy soon and one thing's for sure, it's gonna be funny!
