The bar also emphasized that the show was not planned, in the post’s comment section. In a separate statement, they also made a request to the lucky audience of Jo Koy’s surprise show.
“[P]akiusap din na huwag natin post yung video sa mga nabiyayaang makanood kasi marespeto naman tayo coz dis a free show.”
(To those who were lucky enough to watch the show, let us please not upload [any] video [of the set] out of respect, since this is a free show.)
A few days ago, the comedian was also spotted in Cubao. Jo Koy hinted that he was filming “something special” during his visit to the country, as per his Instagram post on Jan. 6.
The stand-up comedian is set to have two shows in the Philippines, as part of the world tour of his comedy act “Jo Koy: Just Kidding” at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu on Jan. 14, and at the Mall of Asia (MOA) Arena in Pasay City on Jan. 15. JB
