Another day, another show added to comedian Jo Koy’s run at Blaisdell Arena


    Jo Koy performs in Honolulu last year. He returns to Oahu in November for at least four shows at the Blaisdell Arena.

Comedian Jo Koy added a fourth show today at the Blaisdell Arena in November.

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. show on Nov. 21 go on sale at 10 a.m., with prices set at $45 and $55, on

Koy’s first show on Nov. 24 quickly sold out Wednesday morning, prompting the addition of two more shows on Nov. 25 and Nov. 23. Scattered single seats are still available for the latter two shows.

Last year, the Filipino-American comedian sold out 11 shows at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.

Calling from California, where Koy had a concert in San Jose today, the comedian told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser Thursday he would be open to adding additional arena shows if the third concert sells out. “It’s moving so fast,” Koy said.

He said he could feel the affection Hawaii audiences have for him and his comedy.

“I was walking around town, and, just how people were coming up to me, it was appreciation — just love,” he said. “Better not kick me out now. I’m staying forever.”

Koy plans to film his next comedy special while in Honolulu, as part of his Break the Mold World Tour. Because the comedian’s routines include mature content, tickets are restricted to those ages 12 and over.
