Jo Koy Talks Shoes, Making It Big As A Comedian On The Big Show 11/6/18

Tuesday, November 6th

Jo Koy has been in the business of comedy for 30 years, but you probably just recently started to hear about him.

It's taken a long time but Jo is making it big with his standup, yet he's still humbled by his beginnings. He got his first big break back when Jay Leno was helming The Tonight Show, and right up to that point he was without insurance with multiple jobs like cleaning a yacht & working as a shoe salesman at the Nordstrom Rack (yes, the discount version of the fancy brand!). 

Jo shared other stories of his rise to success with us, leading up to his summer standup tour that he was able to share with his 15 year old son in Australia, "now he's enjoying the fruits of my labor" he says. "That was the best tour of my life because my son was with me."

Jo Koy is performing two shows at the Beacon Theater November 9th as part of the New York Comedy Festival, get tickets at www.jokoy.com.
