Jo Koy is ready to deliver more binge-worthy comedic material to your favorite streaming service.

Netflix took to Deadline to announce that they will be releasing a new comedy special with the Filipino-American star. This will be the fourth comedy special that Koy will be partnering with the streaming giant and is set to arrive in early 2022.

Koy will film the as-yet-untitled special on March 25 and 26 at The Forum in Los Angeles, California. Koy made his Netflix debut in 2017 with Jo Koy: Live From Seattle, followed by Jo Koy: Comin’ In Hot in 2019 and Jo Koy: In His Elements in 2020.

Among Koy’s current projects is Easter Sunday, an upcoming comedy inspired by the comedian’s experiences growing up in a Filipino family. The film, written by Ken Cheng, hails from Amblin Partners and Dan Lin’s Rideback. Koy is also set to headline a Filipino-American sitcom Josep currently in development at ABC. He will write and executive produce the comedy alongside showrunner Steve Joe, writers Michael Golamco and Randall Park and their Imminent Colision banner, Hieu Ho, Joe Meloche and The Detective Agency’s Jake Kasdan and Melvin Mar.

The Tacoma, Washington comedian began his stand-up career in 1994 at a comedy club in Las Vegas. Soon he moved from open mic night to a regular spot on the show Catch a Rising Star at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. After performing at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, he rented the Huntridge Theater and went door to door to sell tickets to his comedy shows. A talent coordinator from Los Angeles spotted Koy and landed him his first television appearance on BET’s ComicView. He has appeared in two seasons of ComicView. The comedian has gone on to star in other TV stand-up specials like Jamie Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza! and Chelsea Lately. Jo Koy has won the Showtime at the Apollo, performed in front of troops in the USO Tour, and can be seen on various VH1 shows.
