"This one, it's more personal," he told Salon.com. "This is my 33rd year in stand-up. I started in 1989, so it's like I want to start talking about that and more personal stuff and what it took to get where I'm at now and let this generation know that it's just not as easy as you think."

In a conversation with Salon.com, Jo Koy shares that passion is his driving factor, not money nor fame. "I love stand-up. I'm good at a coffee house tomorrow night. I'm good. It doesn't need to be the United Center in April. I can be at the Laugh Factory on Sunset on a Wednesday night with 15 people," he shared.
"I'm extremely happy because this is my passion. This is what I love to do."
As a prominent icon in the global stand-up scene, Jo Koy won the hearts of audiences across the world, selling out arenas in every city he visits.
