Jo Koy headed to Haskins Center in January 2022

Comedian Jo Koy will bring his ‘Funny Is Funny’ World Tour to The UTEP Don Haskins Center on January 7, 2022.

In March 2021, the comedian released his first autobiography, Mixed Plate with Harper Collins Publishers. In this memoir, Koy uncovers the stories behind his stand-up: the conflict, the drama, and the laughter as he struggles to find his place in the entertainment industry, a country and the world.

Koy recently finished production with Amblin Partners and Dan Lin’s Ridback for the comedy film, ‘Easter Sunday’ releasing in theaters April 1, 2022. The feature film will be loosely based on Koy’s life experiences and will be set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday.
