Jo Koy has come a long way from his beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. Today, Koy sells out shows across the nation with his infectious, explosive energy on-stage. The Tacoma, Wash. native credits his mother for his comedic and acting talents. It was with her encouragement that Koy participated in local talent shows and impromptu performances, before inspiring a move to Los Angeles.
In 2005, Koy performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and was one of the select few comics to receive a standing ovation. Since then, Koy released two highly rated specials on Comedy Central, “Don’t Make Him Angry” and “Lights Out.” In 2017, Koy released his third comedy special, “Jo Koy: Live from Seattle” as a Netflix Original.

Other appearances include: VH1, “World’s Funniest Fails,” “The Joy Behar Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.” Today, the comedian tours across the nation, and can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, “The Adam Carolla Show” and his own weekly podcast, “The Koy Pond” on Podcast One.
Anjelah Johnson became an internet sensation with her viral video, “Nail Salon” which led to many stand-up, television and ﬁlm opportunities. In 2007, she joined the cast of “MADtv” as a series regular, which spawned another internet sensation, Bon Qui Qui. This original character, a disgruntled fast food employee with no ﬁlter, has been viewed and replicated by more than 65 million people worldwide.
After recording and releasing three songs and two music videos as Bon Qui Qui, Johnson signed a record deal with Warner Bros.
