[With the long-awaited Lights Out stand-up special finally on store shelves, renowned comedian/television personality Jo Koy gives his top five reasons to pick up the new DVD.]
1. Brush Yourself Off & Think Again
Reason number one would have to be because if you are thinking about having a child, watching my DVD might make you change your mind. If you already have a kid, then I'm pretty sure you'll understand my pain after you've watched this DVD. I'm pretty sure when you watch this DVD, you're going to feel pretty good about yourself because you're going to realize you're not the only one living with this monster.
2. Retro Back, Retro Back
Reason number two is because you'll see just why Retro Jordans are still the sh*t to this day. You shouldn't rock anything else on your feet other than Retro 11's. My obsession with Jordans is based off the fact I was broke as a kid. I grew up in '84, '85, '86, '87 and '88. Those were the years of the J's. Back then, we didn't have $100 to spend on shoes especially when your mom was from the Philippines and couldn't understand anything that was more than $100. When I was able to afford them, it was too late and I couldn't even get them on stands anymore. When they started doing the Retros, I was on it. I don't think there's ever been a pair of shoes like the Retros. I try the new ones that are out, but those Retros are classics and I had to bring out the patent leather 11's for this special. Those were in the box for three years before I rocked them.
3. The Time Has Come
Reason number three is because it's my favorite special. It took 20 years for this to actually happen and it happened in my hometown, Los Angeles, and I got to talk about the stuff I really wanted to talk about. You're going to see my talking about more stuff on my mom, my son, it's just a complete story. I'm really excited about this particular special. My first special, Don't Make Him Angry, I got it three years ago after 17 years in the game. It was my first one, but when you do your first special, you're excited, nervous and don't really know what you're doing. For this one, I've already gone through it all and know what to expect. I knew how to be comfortable, I knew how to write the whole routine correctly and it felt right. This was like my everything.
4. ...And Now You Know!
The fourth reason is because it's also a really good learning tool. If you're dating somebody that's got a mom from another country, this is kind of like that bumper. It's going to teach you about all of the craziness about moms not from this country and trying to adapt to this culture, especially if you're dating a Filipino.
5. Keep It Trill
The last reason is because my son is going to private school. We need to pay for his private school tuition and so buying this DVD will help.
