Dynamic Comedian Jo Koy Returns to Treasure Island March 20

treasure island
Las Vegas’ hometown comedian Jo Koy makes his return to the Treasure Island Theatre March 20 at 9 p.m.  Guests must be 18 or older to attend.

From renting out the historic Huntridge Theater to filling the showroom at Treasure Island, Koy has entertained audiences in Las Vegas and beyond for more than twenty years with impressions and stories, uproariously focused around his family, especially his mother and son.

After dropping out of UNLV to pursue stand-up comedy, Koy pounded the pavement on the strip and off, booking gigs from coffee shop open mic nights to “Catch a Rising Star.”  He broke wide in 2005, his persistence rewarded with a star-making turn on BET’s “Comic View.”  His performance later that year on “The Tonight Show” became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation on that program.

Koy has since returned several times to “The Tonight Show” and appeared on various VH1 specials, “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.”  He has previously toured with other comedians, including Jon Lovitz, Chelsea Handler and Carlos Mencia, and on USO and Def Jam Comedy Tours.

He also voices several caricatures on “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast including a Japanese competitive food eater, a P.F. Chang’s host and Bung Lu Soo, an aspiring singer. A new episode of Koy’s podcast “The Michael Yo and Jo Koy Show” is available on iTunes every Tuesday.

Inspired by his son, Koy’s first Comedy Central special “Don’t Make Him Angry,” aired in January 2009. A highly anticipated second Comedy Central special “Lights Out” followed in October 2012, and is now available on DVD. He was also a regular panelist on “Chelsea Lately,” appearing on more than 100 episodes from 2009 through the finale last year.

Tickets are available starting at $54.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.
