From a press release:

Comedian Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. His infectious, explosive energy onstage, insightful jokes, and family‐inspired humor cross all boundaries as he sells out venues across the nation.

He’ll bring his unique brand of humor to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center stage on Sunday, May 29 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which range from $25-$35, go on sale this Friday, March 25 at 10 a.m. and can be purchased at, the Event Center box office (77 Sands Blvd., Bethlehem),, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000.

Koy is a weekly guest on “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast and recently started his own podcast, “The Koy Pond with Jo Koy.”

In 2005, he had the “opportunity of a lifetime” when he performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show.

He has had two Comedy Central specials, “Don’t Make Him Angry” and “Lights Out,” and has appeared on “Chelsea Lately,” VH1, “World’s Funniest Fails,” “The Joy Behar Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” and Jamie Foxx’s “Laffapalooza,” bringing his television appearances to well over 100 episodes.

Koy is a firm believer in service and giving back to the community and is currently working with the Lupus Foundation to bring awareness to this cause.
