Following a sold-out performance last year, comedic sensation Jo Koy returns to Treasure Island March 22 at 9 p.m. Guests must be 18 years or older to attend.

Pursuing big dreams of a career in comedy, Koy began performing at a Las Vegas coffee house in 1994. Encouraged by his mother, who Koy credits for his comedic and acting talents, the comedian used insightful jokes, his Filipino heritage, family humor and an explosive stage presence to rise to stardom. Koy's stage name comes from the Filipino term "Jokoy" which means joker and was his childhood nickname.

Koy joked his way from open mic night to land his first television appearance on BET's "Comic View." Since then, Koy has appeared in other television specials including "Jaime Foxx Presents: Laffapalooza," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and various VH1 specials. He also appears weekly as a round table guest on "Chelsea Lately."

When Koy landed a coveted spot on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" in 2005, he joined the ranks of the select few to ever receive a standing ovation. Following his Tonight Show success, Koy hit the road as a part of Carlos Mencia's "Punisher Tour" in 2006.

Koy continues to fill clubs across the nation and can currently be seen starring in his second one-hour Comedy Central special "Jo Koy: Lights Out."

Tickets are available starting at $44.95, plus tax and handling fees, and can be purchased online at www.treasureisland.com, or by calling the box office at 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7723.

Treasure Island on the Las Vegas Strip is a privately owned hotel and casino and stands alone as the only major Strip property to claim that unique market position. Boasting nearly 3,000 guest rooms, Treasure Island is a world-class destination for headline entertainment, the enchanting Sirens of TI nightly outdoor show and Mystère, the classic Cirque du Soleil performance that combines the powerful athleticism, high-energy acrobatics and inspiring imagery that have become the company's hallmark. Upscale and casual dining choices, hip nightspots and indulgent spa and shopping experiences further complement the one-of-a-kind Treasure Island guest experience.
