Jo Koy

Break The Mold Tour
Tickets Going Fast | New Seats Just Opened at $28.50 + Ticket Fees

Comedy Central and Netflix Star

Jo Koy “Breaks the Mold” with his new tour, selling out shows in Australia, Hawaii, Las Vegas, and California.  For the first time ever, Jo Koy will bring his infectious energy and captivate audiences at DPAC on Saturday, September 8, 2018.

Jo Koy’s humble beginnings in standup comedy took place in Las Vegas coffee shops in the early 1990s.  Now, he is recognized as one of the most successful comedians in the nation.  Koy considers his big break to be when he performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2005, being one of the very few to earn a standing ovation for his performance.  Since then, he has two successful Comedy Central shows, Dont Make Him Angry and Lights Out, in which he draws most of his inspiration from his family, Filipino heritage, and more.  In 2017, Koy self-produced his own Netflix original titled Jo Koy: Live from Seattle, which was released worldwide.  Koy can also be seen on Kevin Hart’s and Lionsgate’s platform LaughOutLoud.com, on which he hosts the unscripted show Inglorious Pranksters.

Jo Koy is also a weekly guest on The Adam Carolla Show podcast, and is the host of his own podcast, The Koy Pond on Podcast One.  Koy has also appeared as a panelist in over 100 episodes of Chelsea Lately.  Additionally, he has been featured on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, Spike TVs Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live, VH1, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and many others.

Jo Koy knew he wanted to become a comedian at eleven years old.  Later on, he would break a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at The Blaisell Concert Hall in Honolulu.  Most recently, it has been announced that Koy will star in the live-action Anastasia movie as Vladimir Lenin. 

There is no doubt that Jo Koy will delight audiences and leave them wanting more.

Safety First - Bag Check

For your safety, all guests and their bags are subject to inspection before entry. This inspection may include the use of metal detectors. Restricted items include, but are not limited to, Alcohol, Cameras, Glass Bottles, and Weapons of any kind. In addition, we will also now restrict backpacks and any oversized bags larger than 12 inches x 12 inches x 10 inches (about the size of a standard milk crate). Safety first is our goal.

Video Screens

Currently, this event has not approved using our video screens. Please feel free to check back closer to the event for updates. If approved, we will post notice here.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.

-Premium Seating
-An Opportunity to meet Jo Koy after the show
-An autographed tour poster
