Jo Koy: Comin’ in Hot is a special episode available on Netflix. It is a recording of a show that Koy did in Hawaii, and it has to be one of the best standup shows around.
I don’t watch a whole lot of standup comedy so I’m not the best judge of quality, but I thought Jo Koy: Comin’ in Hot was hilarious. As an Asian and being from Hawaii, a lot of the content was super relatable and funny. Koy is Filipino, so it is probably the most funny if you are a Filipino from Hawaii (as a lot of jokes are tailored for this demographic), but even if you are not the show is still great.
Of course, since Koy is a comedian a lot of the jokes he makes are not PC. However, comedians get a lot more leeway than normal people when joking about stereotypes and different races, as without these types of jokes they wouldn’t be able to create a show. I think Koy does a good job of making mostly harmless jokes that are still incredibly funny (and I hope he does not get “cancelled” in this touchy environment).
If you are looking for some laughs at home, definitely watch Jo Koy: Comin’ in Hot. The show is an hour, and there is never a dip in the performance quality.

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
