Jo Koy, a well-known stand-up comedian for nearly 30 years, will lead a comedy movie ‘Easter Sunday’ to give tribute as well to the Filipino-American community.
‘Easter Sunday’ for Filipino American Community
Jo Koy is a Filipino-American stand-up comedian for nearly 30 years. Most of his acts are about the different traditions of Filipinos and of course how his family celebrates these. This time around, he will bring the ‘Easter Sunday’ celebration of his family not on the stage but through a film.
The official trailer for ‘Easter Sunday’ was already released and it has already gained more than 15 million views, according to a published article in COLLIDER. Jo Koy will bring his family (not literally but in spirit) in this movie and will give everyone knowledge about the Filipino-American community.
In this movie, you have to expect bickering, yelling, eating, drinking, laughing, and most especially loving. Actually, the trailer started when Jo Koy returns to his demanding but supportive family. His on-screen mother commented how he should have been a lawyer and another scene will tell us why their family has the same ATM pin number.
