The Filipino-American stand-up comedian Jo Koy got the fame from the show The Adam Carolla Show with his semi-regular appearances.
The once-married comedian cherishes his life with his son more than his professional life. He usually flaunts his fatherhood on the social media claiming his son changed his life.
And he has strange things happening in his life. Let's try sorting out his personal and professional matters related to his wife, love for his son and much more.
Divorced With Ex-wife; Son Changed Life
Jo has a habit of keeping things secret and confidential. He was married once to Angie King. But the marriage couldn't last as he divorced his wife while keeping the reasons for the split under the wraps.
Talking about his former wife, she is an art creator and curator by profession. Her focus is on religious sacramentals, saints and prayers inspired art, the knowledge for her artwork comes from her Catholic Filipino upbringing. On 24th January she even hosted her pop-up shop to promote her art.
Well, it can be assumed why the former pair were attracted initially. Jo and Angie's creative careers and similar Filipino ethnicity could have brought them together. However, the marriage couldn’t last, but one good thing came out of the disastrous marriage: their son Joseph Herbert Jr.

We can see that his son means the world to him and everyone knows what children mean to their parents. Bless the two of you. He has committed his ex-wife to stay in a healthy relationship for the sake of their son. He even pays a high amount of child support to his ex-wife.
Jo never entertains questions about his ex-wife, not even her name, during his stage performances. "Mother of my son," "ex-wife" and "former girlfriend" are the terms that he prefers to use when it comes to referring her. He hasn't even revealed her name. Even on Valentine's Day (2009), he said:
"I am so thankful for the mother of my son. She’s given me the most important person in my life – my son. I thank her for taking good care of him while I’m away and on the road, being a good mom to him and friend to me."
Parents have immense love and affection for their child and yes! Jo Koy is no exception. He loves and gets inspired by his offspring and has immense gratitude for his kid.
