List Rules Jo Koy ranks his funniest movies, which, are in fact, hilarious

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today’s most hilarious stand-up comedians, Koy sells out comedy clubs and theaters across the nation with his infectious, explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls inspiration from his family - specifically his son - that inspires humor across all boundaries. Koy, 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. 

In 2005, Koy had the “opportunity of a lifetime,” when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  He became one of a select few comics to receive a standing ovation on the show.

Since then, Koy has had two highly-rated and successful comedy 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 on Netflix. When he's not filming his own specials, he's touring across the nation, and is a weekly guest on the popular podcast The Adam Carolla Show. Koy also has weekly podcast, The Koy Pond, and has appeared on more than 100 episodes of Chelsea Lately, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Jamie Foxx's Laffapalooza

So take it from an expert: these comedies are sure to make you laugh.
