Jo Koy hits the Auckland stage for his debut show this June

One of today's premiere comic geniuses Jo Koy is about to set foot on Kiwi soil, bringing his debut show to Auckland's Bruce Mason Centre this June as part of his 'Breaking The Mold' world tour.

Joseph Glenn Herbert, famously known as Jo Koy, is a Filipino-American stand-up who's been selling out comedy clubs and theatres across the US with his contagiously quirky vibe performances. Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings, performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. The love for his family is what keeps him going no matter what life brings ahead.

In 2005, Koy made a breakthrough when he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He's one of the carefully handpicked comedians who owned the stage and brought the audience to their feet. Since then, Koy has had two successful comedy specials on Comedy Central's 'Don't Make Him Angry' and 'Lights Out'. Late last year, the 46-year old comedian broke a record for the most tickets sold by a single artist at The Neal S. Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu with 11 sold-out shows and over 23,000 tickets flying out the doors. Koy then released his 3rd stand-up special 'Jo Koy: Live from Seattle' as a Netflix Original.

Jo Koy is currently winding up his'Breaking The Mold' world tour. He can be heard at his weekly podcast 'The Koy Pond' and the popular 'The Adam Carolla Show' where he's been a regular guest.

Koy can also be seen on the Kevin Hart & Lionsgate platform LaughOutLoud.com as the host of the un-scripted series 'Inglorious Pranksters'. Apparently, he has appeared on over 100 episodes of 'Chelsea Lately' as a season regular roundtable guest.

Other appearances include: The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, Spike TV's Adam Carolla & Friends Build Stuff Live, Celebrity Page TV, VH1, World's Funniest Fails, The Joy Behar Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Last Call with Carson Daly and Jamie Foxx: Laffapalooza.

Laugh out loud with Jo Koy's powerful punchlines and witness his crazy antics live this June!
