Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today’s vastly growing stand-up comedians, Koy sells-out comedy clubs & theaters across the nation with his infectious, explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, that inspires humor across all boundaries.
Koy, who was raised in Tacoma, WA, credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. She encouraged him to participate in school talent shows and to hold impromptu performances for his family and friends. This loving support led to performances at a Las Vegas coffee house, and inspired a move to Los Angeles.
In 2005, Koy had the “opportunity of a lifetime,” when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show.
Since then, Koy has had two highly-rated and successful comedy specials on Comedy Central, Don’t Make Him Angry and Lights Out. In 2017, Koy will be releasing his 3rd comedy special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle as a Netflix Original on March 28th world-wide.
Today, the comedian tours across the nation, and can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show. Koy recently joined the Podcast One family and host’s the weekly podcast, The Koy Pond. For more info on the podcast and tour dates, please visit: Jokoy.com.
Koy has also appeared on over 100 episodes of Chelsea Lately as a season regular roundtable guest. Other appearances include: VH1, World’s Funniest Fails, The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.
Jo's honesty about his upbringing and his kids is not only hilarious but inspiring to all parents out there. I'm really excited for everyone to hear this one.
Jim Florentine figured a way to make a living out of his love of AC/DC and making prank phone calls. You'll know him as the co-host of the VH1's wildly popular, "The Metal Show", or maybe from Crank Yankers, Train Wreck, Beer League, Howard Stern, Jimmy Kimmel, or Chelsea Lately, or a ton of other stuff. He has a successful podcast, "Comedy Mental Midgets" and his new comedy special, "A Simple Man" can be found on iTunes. From his Dad's sex talk of "Don't grab women!", to using saran wrap as a condom, to sending flowers to a co-worker from a "Secret Admirer" which went horribly awry, Jim's distinctive comedy voice hilariously tells you about his journey to fatherhood.
You'll know him from Raising Hope, My Name is Earl, Cafe Society or as the Del Taco Guy. But Greg is also the Father to 3 kids. His honest stories of growing up in Topeka, Kansas, to playing a Barney Fife impersonator at the Ed Debevic's Restaurant, to getting nude with his Father-in-Law at a Japanese bath make for great listening.
This podcast makes me soooo happy. This dude is the real f'ing deal. I love it when good things happen to amazing people. I met Rocco at the GI Film Festival with Mat Best, Jarred Taylor and the rest of his Article 15/Youtube Star posse. They were showcasing their 1.2 million dollar crowd funded movie, "Range 15" to rave reviews. He's a real American Hero who served 3 combat deployments as a Ranger, then served as a Federal Agent, then became a youtube star, and now is about to become a TV star with a big pilot he's shooting this month. Oh, and he has 6 KIDS! Here's his official bio: Vincent “Rocco” Vargas was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, California. After several years of college baseball, Vincent enlisted in the US Army and went on to serve 3 combat deployments with 2nd Battalion of the elite 75th Ranger Regiment. After 4 years of active duty service to his country, he joined the U.S. Army Reserves and continue his service. In 2009 he became a Federal Agent with the Department of Homeland Security, and was a BORSTAR Agent with the Special Operations Group attached to BORTAC. Currently one of the owners of the Article 15 "Empire", Leadslingers Whiskey, Warfighter Tobacco and more. He is married and a father of 6 children and lives in Texas.
