Jo Koy is one of the few comedians to ever receive a standing ovation after performing on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Which is understandable, considering the sleep-inducing effect Jay Leno has on most people with brains. Still, Koy's an up-and-comer with an impressive resume: He won Showtime at the Apollo and has performed at the prestigious Montreal Comedy Festival. This weekend, he's at the Addison Improv, 4980 Belt Line Road in Addison. Shows are Thursday, December 17, at 8 p.m.; Friday December 18, at 8 and 10:30 p.m.; Saturday, December 19 at 6:30, 9 and 11 p.m.; and Sunday, December 20, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 to $17.
