Jo Koy Bio


Jo Koy (born Joseph Glenn Herbert; June 2, 1971) is an American stand-up comic. He is currently touring the college circuit as a featured comedian and performs in clubs across the country. He is often a panelist on E!'s late night show Chelsea Lately.

Jo Koy’s Son Features in His Comedy


Jo Koy and Angie King are parents to Joseph Herbert Jr., who was born on April 21, 2003. And it feels like we know Lil Joe—or L.J., as everyone calls him—very well, considering he’s been the butt of his dad’s joke more than once.

His newest stand-up special is about single fatherhood and living with a teenage son. But truly, L.J. shares his dad’s sense of humor (if his Instagram captions are anything to go by).

Koy has learned from his experience during his parents’ divorce and subsequent estrangement from his father and uses the lessons to cultivate a healthy relationship with his ex-wife and be a better father to L.J.

Despite his very busy tour schedule, Koy is an ever-present dad to make sure that his son doesn’t experience a childhood similar to his.

Joe Koy Early life


Koy is of Filipino and Caucasian heritage. His American father was in the Air Force when he married his Filipino mother. Koy's Filipino-American family moved from Tacoma, Washington to Las Vegas soon after he finished high school in Spanaway, Washington; a graduate from Spanaway Lake High School.

He moved to Las Vegas to be near his ailing grandmother. Koy enrolled in UNLV, but dropped out to do stand-up comedy. Koy's stage name comes from a nickname his family gave him growing up.Jokoy is a colloquial Filipino term for "joker".

Jo Koy’s Mother Is a Filipino-American


Born Joseph Glenn Herbert on June 2, 1971, Jo Koy has Filipino heritage from his mother, Josie Harrison (born 1948). Harrison, a native of Quezon City in the Philippines, was married to Koy’s father, who was in the Air Force.

Harrison used to work as an office manager for a Filipino rock band. After her divorce, Harrison raised her children as a single mother.

“I went to school on my own. I started from the bottom up. I worked two jobs to provide for the need of my four children. A banker during the day for Wells Fargo and a cashier/hostess at Denny restaurant at night. I did everything on my own,” the comedian’s mother said.

Jo was raised alongside his elder siblings, Robert Herbert and Rowena Hazel Cook, and his adopted sister, Gemma Herbert Simmons. They lived in Washington state before moving to Las Vegas.

His mother had hoped he would choose a conventional career and have a stable life. But Joseph Herbert dropped out of college and went on to become a successful comedian as Jo Koy, a nickname given to him by his aunt.

It’s no surprise, though, given that performance runs in his blood. Harrison’s mother was an actress in the Philippines and one of her daughters is a singer in Las Vegas.
