Jo Koy

To hear him tell it, comedian Jo Koy's ego must be a bruised and ragged little thing. On a recent road trip with the Comedians of Chelsea Lately, Koy, comedian Josh Wolf and Chuy were hanging out in a bar (Chuy, for those few of you who aren't Chelsea Lately fans, is a little person who is Chelsea Handler's sidekick on the show). According to Koy, at one point the crowd parted, very Red Sea-ish, and two beautiful girls walked up to the comedian's table. They ignored the married-but-nonetheless-handsome Koy and Wolf and went straight for Chuy. Before the comics were completely aware of what was happening, Chuy was gone, leaving the bar with the two women, a dazed Koy and Wolf in his wake. It's the sort of thing that seems to happen often to the bald Koy, who crafts his best routines around situations where he's one-upped by an unexpected opponent. 8 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday, 7 and 9 p.m. Sunday. Houston Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit www.improvhouston.com. $18 to $20.
