After selling out an unprecedented 11 shows at the Blaisdell Concert Hall last year, comedian Jo Koy has announced his return to Honolulu, taping his next comedy special at the Blaisdell Arena on Nov. 24.

Tickets for the Break the Mold World Tour, $45 and $55, go on sale to the public on Friday at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com. Using the password “SPECIAL,” fans can get tickets through a presale beginning Wednesday.

The performances, which often refer to his youth in Seattle, growing up with a Filipina mother and a Caucasian father who had been in the Air Force, are recommended for those age 12 and older.

In November 2017, Koy sold more than 23,000 tickets for a record-setting 11 sold-out shows at the Blaisdell Concert Hall. Celebrating this accomplishment, Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s office proclaimed Nov. 24 “Jo Koy Day.”

The comedian is currently selling out shows on his Break the Mold World Tour, his publicists said, with stops in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan.

Koy is a weekly guest on “The Adam Carolla Show” podcast, and hosts his own weekly podcast, “The Koy Pond,” on PodcastOne. His latest stand-up special, “Jo Koy: Live From Seattle” is currently streaming on Netflix.

Last week, Koy posted a pitch on Instagram for fans to make donations to help island residents suffering from both last month’s damaging floods on Kauai and the current Kilauea volcano eruption on Hawaii island.
