Many comics imitate their immigrant mothers on stage. But when Chelsea Lately alum and Adam Carolla Show regular Jo Koy tells a story about his Filipino mom playing Wii or mocking him for losing his car keys, not only is the attention to detail closer to a short story than a caricature, but he, not his mother, becomes the ultimate butt of the joke. When he describes picking his girlfriend up from the bar, the physical imitation of her peeing in public transitions into a dissection of sexual politics that’s more likely to leave men squirming uncomfortably. Koy, a family nickname and now his stage name, suits him well.

$39.25-$49.25, Thu Feb. 22, 8pm, The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
