JO KOY | MYSTÈRE THEATRE AT TREASURE ISLAND | MAY 1, 2015
One of the things I love about being a photographer is the special access. I’ve photographed everything from motocross to horse jumping from the tracks and fields, as well as concerts and comedians from the first row. This past Friday, I photographed renowned comedian Jo Koy. Aside from the laminated backstage credentials hanging around my neck, I also received my own “private booth” and comfy chair … well, actually a stool in the sound booth, but at least I had plenty of leg room and didn’t have to share armrests. Koy’s set was exceptionally well received by a massive Filipino audience likely in town to support Manny Pacquiao’s fight the following evening. His boisterous style and hyper-active stage presence kept the venue full of laughter and made my job for the evening another entertaining credential on my wall.
