Jo Koy to return to Dubai on September 3 for comedy show

Jo Koy will be returning to Dubai on September 3 at the Coca-Cola Arena for his long-awaited Funny Is Funny show, organizer Blu Blood announced on Tuesday (June 28).

The comedian was scheduled to perform in Dubai in May but the show was cancelled following the death of Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. His previous show in December 2021 at the Coca-Cola arena was also cancelled “due to unforeseen circumstances”.

“As they say, third time’s the charm!” according to Blu Blood. In September, Dubai fans will be treated to a night of “all-new, never-seen-before material from the Filipino-American comedian, who brings his unique life experience and colourful stories of his family to the stage”.

“I left my heart in Dubai and I cannot wait to get back to share my stories. Dubai is going to be one of the first to see my new material from my Netflix special before it even gets aired in September,” Jo Koy said.
