You see comedian Jo Koy on “Chelsea Lately” all the time but go see him in a theater show where there are thousands of people there just to see him. I spoke to Jo in late March just before his Comedy Central special, “Jo Koy: Lights Out,” premiered on April 1st. It was a real pleasure to talk to him. I suggest you check out the unedited DVD version of unrated version of “Lights Out” with extras and material that never made it to TV.
Over at SCPR I posted a very enjoyable interview that I had with comedian Jo Koy who has appeared on “Chelsea Lately” several dozen times. His 2nd hour-long Comedy Central special, “Jo Koy: Lights Out,” premiered on Sunday, April 1st. I enjoyed the special quite a bit, Koy’s act focuses a lot on his family and his son and the material is very different from what he does on the E! late night show, I urge you to check out the special the next time it runs on Comedy Central, which will probably be again sometime this week. He was an incredibly friendly guy on the phone, I hope to meet him in person sometime as well as catch his act. If you look at his schedule, he primarily does theatre shows which is testament to his success, the last time he came through New England, he did the Fox theatre at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut but I imagine he would be really great in a club so I’m a little torn on which type of venue I’d want to see him at.
