Jo Koy brings his brilliant comedy to Yuengling Center
In March 2021, the comedian released his first autobiography, Mixed Plate with Harper Collins Publishers. In this funny and moving memoir, Koy uncovers the stories behind his stand-up: the conflict, the drama, and the laughter as he struggles to find his place in the entertainment industry, a country and the world.
Koy recently finished production with Amblin Partners and Dan Lin’s Ridback for the comedy film, Easter Sunday releasing in theaters this August. The feature film will be loosely based on Koy’s life experiences and will be set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday.
The comedian has had five highly rated and successful stand-up specials on Comedy Central and Netflix including his latest variety special In His Element current streaming on Netflix with plans to shoot his 3rd stand-up special in 2022. He can also be heard on his weekly podcast, The Koy Pond with Jo Koy by Starburns Audio.
