Comedian Jo Koy appears to be making the most out of this visit here in the country as he visited a bar in Quezon City and granted his fans a surprise performance.

Jo Koy is best known for his stand-up comedy special “Comin’ In Hot” on the movie-streaming platform Netflix, where he often harks back to his Filipino-American heritage. The comedian was spotted in Mow’s Bar in Matalino St., where an open mic show was occurring, as per local comedy production Comedy Manila’s Facebook post last Tuesday, Jan. 7.

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.)
