Jo Koy's broken box office sales records at some of the nation's highest-profile venues.
Born Joseph Glenn Herbert, Filipino American comedian Jo Koy got his stage handle from a family nickname based on his grandmother's use of the Tagalog language.

He rose to stardom after being featured as a regular on Chelsea Lately, and his relatable style of comedy put him on a superstar trajectory.

As evidence of that status, he's broken box office sales records at some of the nation's highest-profile venues. In 2017, he shattered the sales record at the Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu, leading the city's mayor to declare Nov. 24 Jo Koy Day.

The comic's list of screen credits also continues to grow. Last year, he released the new standup special Live from the Los Angeles Forum, which premiered on Netflix last September, and he also starred in the movie Easter Sunday.

$51.50-$61.50, 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center, (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com.
