Clips from Jo Koy’s “Don’t Make Him Angry”

The first new stand-up comedy special of 2009 debuts tonight, as Comedy Central presents Jo Koy: Don't Make Him Angry. Taped in November in New York City, this special was the network's main addition to the New York Comedy Festival lineup (related review here). Here is a preview clip, in which Jo Koy tries and fails to ignore his son. It's not quite safe for work, even though it's bleeped.

Backstage, listen to Koy explain having to go DIY in Las Vegas to get attention as a local comedian.

And here Koy talks about his worst gig:
