After some of my shows in So. Cal, we like to hang out and eat at Maxim's Cafe. The staff there is wonderful. Here is a clip of us with them.

Chelsea and I have been friends for like three years now. We performed at shows together before. I remember she asked me to be her sidekick on her show when it first came out and I kind of turned it down. The only reason was that I have an agenda and a goal I wanted to achieve and I felt that it was not the right move for me. I wanted my own show. She got the Chelsea show and I want the Jo Koy show. The decision I made was a risk because the show is successful. It was a bad decision in the beginning, but it turned out great since Comedy Central gave me my own show. I’m so happy for her and all she’s done. I love her a lot because she is so giving. She shares her show with other comedians, which she doesn’t need to do. I get a lot of exposure from that show. I love that show!

This was from 3 months ago and I've been on the road and so busy with my TV shows that I haven't had much time to celebrate this. Canada awarded me with a Gemini Award. I am very much thankful for the recognition.
How crazy was that?! I know here in America no one knows about it, but in Canada is huge. It’s a Canadian Emmy and a lot of great starts won it like Alanis Morrisette, John Candy and Avril Lavigne. They are all big names... and here I am, just Jo Koy. My friend Russell Peters, a comedian that lives in Toronto also won the Gemini award the same year I did, swears that I’m the only American to win that award. It’s so cool to win it and it makes me so happy.
This is a clip of a show Jon Lovitz and I did together at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. I was headlining that night and asked Jon if he could come down and do a few minutes for the audience. He ended up using that time to make fun of me - but we're good friends, so I did it right back to him. jo koy
