Jo Koy is an American stand-up comedian and actor. He was a frequent panelist on E!’s late night show Chelsea Lately. He has since had a number of Comedy Central and Netflix specials.

Jo Koy’s career began in Las Vegas during the early 1990s, when he performed at local comedy clubs and gradually built a following. He gained national recognition in 2005 when he made his first appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”

This led to multiple appearances on “Chelsea Lately,” cementing his status as a top-tier comedic talent. Koy’s honest and hilariously relatable storytelling often centers around his family, specifically his Filipino mother and growing up in a mixed-race household.

Jo Koy’s comedy specials have been successful both critically and popularly. His first Netflix special, “Jo Koy: Live from Seattle” in 2017, was a hit and was followed by “Jo Koy: Comin’ In Hot” in 2019, “Jo Koy: In His Elements” in 2020, and “Live from the LA Forum” in 2022.

Beyond his comedy specials, Koy is also an acclaimed podcaster, hosting “The Koy Pond” with Jo Koy by Starburns Audio.

The stand-up comedian, born Joseph Glenn Herbert, was married to Filipina-American singer Angie King (stage name: Nura Luca) from 2003 to 2013.

The pair welcomed one child together, son Joseph Herbert Jr., on April 21, 2003. Read on to learn more about Jo Koy’s son, Joseph Herbert Jr.

Who is Joseph Herbert Jr?

Joseph Herbert Jr. is the son of Jo Koy, whose real name is Joseph Glenn Herbert.

Herbert Jr. was born to Jo Koy and Angie King at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles on April 21, 2003. He was raised in L.A., where he attended private school.

Jo has previously spoken about his love for fatherhood. “I love being a dad,” he said on Father’s Day last year. On his son’s 18th birthday, the comedian took to Instagram to pay homage to their close bond saying,

“I’ve always said that my life didn’t start until you were born. Now I’m excited to see what your future holds. The world is yours my son and I’ll be right next to you the whole way.”

The natural inclination towards public displays of affection is clearly something Joseph has inherited from his father.

In 2020 he took to Instagram himself to share a touching black and white photo of the pair of them standing on stage in the full arena during one of Jo’s shows. The post was captioned: “Still can’t believe this happened. So proud and so happy u lived out one of ur dreams.”

But that doesn’t mean that Joseph is exempt from being worked into his dad’s stand-up material. Jo said on the Larry King Show in 2019:

“My son is just a walking joke for me. If it happens inside these walls that I pay for, I’m going to capitalize, and you’re going to enjoy what we make off of you together.”

The comedian has previously opened up about co-parenting with his ex-partner and the healthy relationship they have maintained to raise Joseph.

Chatting to Kelly Clarkson on her eponymous talk show he said: “We’re a loving family and we can work. Just because you’re not married, it doesn’t mean you can’t be the best of friends. You still have the responsibility to raise this beautiful child together. And it’s fun to see my son see his parents happy.”

Jo has opened up about the likeness between himself and his son, and it’s not just in their looks. It appears the 20-year-old has a sense of humour like his father. During an appearance on River City Live, Jo said of Joseph:

“I know he’s got a creative mind and he’s got a sense for fashion and comedy, and I know that’s the avenue and lane he’s going to take after school. So I will be there to help him but in no way am I going to force him or discourage him not to do anything.”

Joseph worked in the crew for Jo’s 2023 world tour and has even made a TV appearance alongside his dad. In 2022 the pair were seen twice on ABC’s Celebrity Family Feud. Speaking to the show’s host Steve Harvey, Jo said:

“He’s so talented! He’s so funny, Steve! And I’m just so honored to be on the road and share these memories with him ‘cause he works with me and he rides with me everywhere.”
