Jo Koy: Break the Mold Tour


Tampa Theatre is proud to announce comedian Jo Koy will bring his hilarious live show to our historic stage Saturday, February 16, as part of his Break the Mold Tour presented by ICON Concerts.

Jo Koy has come a long way from his modest beginnings performing at a Las Vegas coffee house. As one of today’s premiere stand-up comedians, Koy sells out theaters and arenas across the world with his infectious and explosive energy onstage. The comedian pulls inspiration from his family, specifically his son, with material that has universal appeal.

In November 2017, the 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 sold. Celebrating this accomplishment, the mayor’s office in Honolulu proclaimed November 24th as “Jo Koy Day.” Koy is also the only comedian to sell out 6 shows at The Warfield in San Francisco, he broke the attendance record at Club Regent Event Centre in Winnipeg with 4 sold-out shows, and is one of the few acts to sell-out 2 shows at The Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, FL. In July 2018, Koy was given the prestigious  Comedian Of The Year” award at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal.

Today, the comedian tours around the world and is currently on his Break The Mold World Tour. He can be heard as a weekly guest on the popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show. He also hosts the weekly podcast The Koy Pond with Jo Koy on Podcast One. Additionally, Koy can be seen on the Kevin Hart’s LaughOutLoud.com as the host of Inglorious Pranksters.

Later this year, Koy is confirmed to film his 2nd Netflix Original stand-up special at the Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, and will also be seen co-starring alongside Brandon Routh and Donna Murphy as “Vladimir Lenin” in the upcoming live-action film Anastasia.

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 3rd stand-up special, Jo Koy: Live from Seattle as a Netflix Original.

Koy has appeared on over 140 episodes of Chelsea Lately as a season regular roundtable guest.
