Jo Koy: Don't Make Him Angry is yet another gem of a Comedy Central special. While I had not heard of Koy before this event (something that I am sad to admit), I was very pleased with what I saw in Don't Make Him Angry. Koy presents a nice slice of his personal experiences of everything from his travels to his family, and the various subjects blend together rather well. The only main complaint I have about the special is its short 40+ minute length, but then again, Comedy Central specials are usually only an hour long, as opposed to the ones found on HBO or other premium channels.

Koy starts off talking about the other places he has stopped at on his tour. First, he rags on the South with his experiences in Alabama, but these quips are easily eclipsed by his anecdotes about Paris and the French in general. From this topic, Koy goes on to talk about his childhood, and more specifically, his Filipino mother.

First he talks about her mannerisms and accent, but when he gets into her playing her Nintendo Wii and Wii Sports, the show really gets fun. Between his mom challenging him to a game of Wii Bowling, to her first experiences with the console, everything is just plain funny. Koy then moves from his mother to his son and wife.

At the age of five, Little Jo (his son) seems to be infatuated with a certain part of the male anatomy that he has named his "Ting Ting" and the jokes that come from these situations are bound to really embarrass the little kid when he gets into his teens and finds a copy of this DVD, especially the segment involving a green permanent marker.

Overall, the show is pretty good. Koy packs a lot into his performance and while it took me a few minutes to get into the show, once I was hooked, I was laughing pretty continuously. What I found pretty impressive by this DVD were the number of special features. Most of these stand-up DVDs are fairly lacking in this department, but Don't Make Him Angry has a good bit to offer. Not only does the DVD have Koy's pre-show involving rappers and break dancers, but he also interviews both break dancers (excuse me, "Beat Boys").

The DVD also comes with Jo Koy's Comedy Central Presents half-hour show, where you can see some of his jokes in earlier phases. Thankfully though, there isn't a whole lot of overlapping between this smaller set and the longer feature presentation. To round out the special features, there is also a series of short one-on-one interviews with Koy about various parts of his life. I'm not really sure why these were recorded in the first place, but they definitely feel like they were part of a commercial or something.

In the end, Joy Koy's new special was pretty good, and the DVD gives you quite a bit, but like most stand-up shows, unless you are a big fan of the comedian, or stand-up in general, there isn't really a need to purchase this disc, so a rental is probably enough for your average viewer.
