Comedian Jo Koy to open Stand Up Live

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Comedian Jo Koy of "Chelsea Lately" fame is opening the Valley's newest comedy club this weekend.

Stand Up Live is located at Cityscape in downtown Phoenix. It's on the second level right nest to Lucky Strike Bowl.

Koy, who's been doing standup for more than15 years, will be the first of many talented comedians to take the stage at the new 600-seat venue.

Koy's career took off after an appearance on "The Tonight Show With Jany Leno" in 2005. He became one of a select few to ever receive a standing ovation on the show.

Now he not only fills clubs across the country, he's a weekly round table guest on "Chelsea Lately."

Koy stopped by the 3TV studio Thursday morning to chat with Tara Hitchcock about it -- and show off his pearly whites.

Koy performs at Stand Up Live Friday and Saturday.
