Comedian Jo Koy joined “Variety Live” on Instagram to talk about his third Netflix special “In His Elements” and how he included other Filipino talents in his standup.
“It’s kind of like this Filipino thing, when one person makes it, you open the door and bring other Filipinos in,” Koy told Variety’s Audrey Yap “So, that’s what I did. I was in the Netflix building, and I opened the door and I was like, ‘I got some more Filipino friends. Let’s go. Get in here. Come on, before they close the door!’”
The special includes Filipino performers such as breakdancer Ronnie, Grammy-winning producer Illmind, singer/songwriter Inigo Pascual and comedians Andrew Lopez, Joey Guila and Andrew Orolfo.
