Hanging out with friends at Maxim's Cafe back in December

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.

My son and the "J"

I came home and saw my son cut his own bangs. He said it was because they were in his eye. He called it the "J".

Backstage at Chelsea Lately

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.

Jon Lovitz

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
