Comedian Jo Koy Was Spotted Performing a Surprise Set at This Bar in Quezon City
If you were enjoying a relaxing evening at Mow’s Bar in U.P. last night, then you could have caught a surprise set by Fil-Am comedian Jo Koy. The performer arrived in Manila a week prior to his upcoming shows in Solaire and the SM Mall of Asia Arena. He was casually spotted during “Siomaic,” the bar’s weekly open mic segment. The administrator of Mow’s Facebook page urged those present last night not to post any video clips of the set out of respect to those who have paid for their tickets to watch one of Jo Koy’s shows in the Just Kidding World Tour.

On Monday, the comedian and his posse paid another unexpected visit to the Farmers Market in Cubao. The Araneta City Facebook page documented the visit and captioned the collection of photos with a hint: “Looks like he is shooting something special for all of his fans!”

He confirms this with his own post on Instagram. On January 8, Jo Koy released a video of himself walking around the streets of Manila and into the SM Mall of Asia Arena. “It’s been 38 years since I’ve been to the Philippines and now I’m back home and this is the best homecoming I could possibly ask for,” he says.
Our guess is that he’ll be using these clips for his next Netflix special, which will feature his show on January 11 at Solaire.
