‘Comedian Jo Koy - Break The Mold Tour’ adds another date

JoKoy two shows in JAX
After successfully selling out two shows at the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre in 2017, comedian Jo Koy announced he will bring his Break The Mold World Tour to the Theatre on Thurs., February 14, 2019 at 8 p.m., and a second show on Sun., Feb.17, 2019 at 7:30 p.m.

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee house.  As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy sells-out theaters and arenas across the world with his infectious and explosive energy onstage.  The comedian pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, with material that has universal appeal.

Koy is one of the few acts to successfully sell out two shows at the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre.  He returns this year as part of his new Break the Mold World Tour.  In November 2017, Koy broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu with 11 sold-out shows and over 23,000 tickets sold. Celebrating this accomplishment, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed November 24th as “Jo Koy Day.”

Koy is also the only comedian to sell out six shows at The Warfield in San Francisco, he broke the attendance record at Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg with four sold-out shows, and is one of the few acts to sell-out two shows at the Florida Theatre. In July 2018, Koy was given the prestigious “Comedian Of The Year” award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

In 2005, Koy 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.  Since then, Koy has had two highly rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central, Don’t Make Him Angry and Lights Out.  In 2017, Koy released his third stand-up special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle as a Netflix original.

Koy has appeared on more than 140 episodes of Chelsea Lately as a season regular roundtable guest. Other appearances include: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, Spike TV’s Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live, Celebrity Page TV, VH1, World’s Funniest Fails, Sean In The Wild, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly.

Later this year, Koy is confirmed to film his second Netflix original stand-up special at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, and will also be seen co-starring alongside Brandon Routh and Donna Murphy as “Vladimir Lenin” in the upcoming live-action film Anastasia.

Jo Coy can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show.  He also hosts the weekly podcast The Koy Pond with Jo Koy on Podcast One.  Additionally, Koy can be seen on
Kevin Hart’s LaughOutLoud as the host of Inglorious Pranksters.  For more info on the podcast and tour dates, visit:
