If you tune your cable box to Comedy Central at any given moment, chances are you will find a South Park re-run or a marathon of the film Beer League (the funniest movie ever, apparently). What you won't often find is stand-up comedy, unless it's 2 in the morning. This is probably why many have never heard of Filipino-American comedian, Jo Koy. His recent Comedy Central special Don't Make Him Angry was filled with so many politically incorrect Asian jokes it would make Margaret Cho jealous (and probably does).
Since catching him on TV is downright difficult, it should be easier just to come down to Improv Paradise Live instead. Koy will be bringing his best "Engrish" voice (does this ever get old?), along with all his famous "Orange Chicken" jokes to appease your comedy appetite.
Stop for take out on the way to 5700 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Jo Koy is appearing Friday through Sunday. Tickets cost $15. Visit improvftl.com for show times, or call the box office at 954-981-5653 for more information.
