When KHON2 interviewed Koy before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, he said there were two things he loved about being back in the islands: Joe Moore and the people of Hawaii.

In 2017, Koy sold out 11 shows at the Blaisdell Concert Hall with over 23,000 tickets sold. The City said he broke a Honolulu record for a single performer’s ticket sales.

When Honolulu issued a proclamation that Nov. 24, 2017 was Jo Koy Day, it moved the comedian to tears. Click here for the story.
