Jo Koy on the presidential election, sleep apnea and Chelsea Handler's benevolence

You probably know him best from his weekly appearances on E!'s Chelsea Lately, where host Chelsea Handler frequently questions his sexual orientation and capitalizes on stereotypes related to his Asian-American heritage. But Jo Koy isn't just a basic-cable punching bag. He's been climbing his way up the comedic echelon for over fifteen years, and is now working on his third hour-long special for Comedy Central.

Westword recently caught up with Koy, who will be appearing at Comedy Works South tomorrow through Saturday, to talk about the downside of touring, women's basketball and everything in between.
