Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. He is now selling out clubs across the nation and has appeared on over 100 episodes of “Chelsea Lately.” His infectious, explosive energy onstage, insightful jokes, and family‐inspired humor cross all boundaries. Jo, 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, Jo had the “opportunity of a lifetime” with a performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He became one of a select few ever to receive a standing ovation.
Jo Koy pulls inspiration from his family and specifically his son. He has had two Comedy Central specials “Don’t Make Him Angry” and “Lights Out.” Jo has appeared on VH1, World's Funniest Fails, The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.
Jo is a firm believer in service and giving back to the community and is currently working with The Lupus Foundation to bring awareness to this cause. Jo currently resides in Los Angeles, California.

Years ago, Esquire called Ben Gleib one of "six comedians who could be comedy's next big thing." The other 5 were Aziz Ansari, Patton Oswalt, David Cross, Demetri Martin, and Flight of the Conchords. It came true for each of them, and it now seems to be Gleib's time. His first hour special, Ben Gleib: Neurotic Gangster, premiered on Showtime in June. http://www.esquire.com/news-politics/a3045/comedians070207/
For 7 years he was one of the stars of Chelsea Lately, and now is Host and Executive Producer of "Idiotest," the Emmy nominated comedy game show in its third season on GSN, as their most watched original show. (For Gleib, EP is not just a title. He helps create all of the show's brain puzzles.)
Gleib is also a regular on "The Today Show" with Kathie Lee and Hoda, and has made multiple appearances on Comedy Central's @midnight.
A truly unique voice in comedy, Gleib has been a regular on-air contributor to CNN and NPR (where he won a Golden Mic,) is an accomplished voice over actor (The Book of Life, Ice Age: Continental Drift -the second highest grossing animated movie of all-time internationally,) and this year co-anchored a week of ABC News digital from their world news headquarters in New York. An unusual gig for a comedian, another example of why he is one of the most multi-talented comics working today.
Gleib has been headlining comedy clubs around the globe since 2007 and has toured arenas with Chelsea Handler and Dane Cook. His podcast 'Last Week On Earth,' debuted on iTunes Comedy at #9, was #1 on stitcher for 20 straight weeks, and his online videos have received over 20 million views.
