About Jo Koy's Real Height

Jo Koy’s height is all over the place on the internet. Some websites (even Google) list it as 5 feet 11 inches, while others as 6’2” and what is funny -- some even go as far north as 6’4”.

What is to believe and what is to not?

Well, we would say believe us. We took a good look at Jo Koy, and have come to the conclusion that Jo is nowhere near 6 feet 4 inches.

If anything it looks like Jo would have difficulty touching the 5’11” mark on a stadiometer as Jo doesn't seem to be more than half a foot taller than Chelsea Handler who is 5'6".

The height of Jo Koy is

5 ft 10½ in (177 cm)

Here are some more Jo Koy quotes

Jo Koy on envy.

Everyone is where they are at because they worked hard for it. Don't ever hate on someone's hustle. Just figure out how you can get there.

On comedy.

Comedy is just an unspoken language. Everybody understands it. Funny is funny. When it's not funny, they'll let you know.

On his ethnicity.

My real name is Joseph Herbert. My dad is white; my mom's Asian, and Filipino. And when I started stand-up 22 years ago, I used to go up as Joseph Herbert, and I would just have to defend my name. Every time I went onstage, it was so annoying. People would heckle.

On his stand-up.

Everything I put on stage is real; that's what my life is. My emotions - I wear them on my sleeve. I'm definitely putting my heart out there when I'm on stage.

On stand-up world.

The stand-up world is very, very hard. There is a lot of competition, there are not that many venues, and there are not that many opportunities. You have really got to stand out.

[and yet Amy Schumer thrives]

On divorce.

I feel like in the old days, it was once it's a divorce, it was a constant fight until they die. That's how my mom and dad lived. They didn't talk to each other. They hated each other. They only spoke through lawyers. It's just a horrible way to live.

On missing your children.

It's been really stressful being on the road a lot, especially when you're a dad. You miss your son a lot. But you gotta make it work because you get to live a good life. I have to sacrifice.

On his son.

My son - oh man, I think, every year, I'm getting 25 to 30 minutes of material from talking about him. He just keeps growing.

On Midwesterners.

I do know one thing: you Midwesterners are laughers.

On Florida men.

Something about Floridians, man - they are good to me. I'm glad my comedy translates to them.

How he started.

I used to put flyers on cars in parking lots, anything to get people to come to my shows. I was always having to think outside the box, and even to this day, I still try and come up with creative ways to market my shows.

In his early stand-up days.

There are a lot of open mics, and a lot of comedy clubs. Whatever money I could make was OK with me. As long as I could pay the rent, eat food, and tell jokes, doing it was good enough for me.

On stand-up comedy.

Just talking in front of people is scary. And now you gotta learn how to be funny, and now you gotta learn how to make people laugh at what you think is funny. That's not easy.
