Following his 2009 debut, Don’t Make Him Angry, comedian and frequent Chelsea Lately guest, Jo Koy is back with his extended and uncensored release, Lights Out, which dropped April 3rd via Comedy Central. Lights Out marks Koy’s second Comedy Central special. The comedian has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, BET’s Comic View and Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza.
Lights Out includes a one hour stand-up special, which Comedy Central filmed at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, plus an additional 15 minutes of material not included in that broadcast. The bonus content is comprised of the first feature entitled, “All Access”, which contains backstage footage of his performance. The second, “DJ Josephine”, consists of Koy as a special guest on his mother’s AM radio show.
