Jo Koy

Comedian Jo Koy's observational comedy hits close to home. His mother and son are frequent targets (we've noticed Koy's smart enough to leave his wife out of most of his routines). His mom is a mild-mannered, soft-spoken Filipino woman who confounds him with her joy in humiliating him during Wii contests ("Oh, Yoseph, you suck!"). His son ("He's out of his mind!") was the focus of Koy's 2008 comedy special. Still a preschooler, the boy's most frequent plaything is his own penis. Koy tells his audience about the time his wife called him complaining that their son had colored his penis green and drawn eyes on his testicles. Running around naked, he looked like a tiny, two-headed Hulk. "Don't make him angry," warned Koy. 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit $15.
