Who is Joseph Herbert Jr?
Joseph was born in Los Angeles, California USA, on 21 April 2003 – his zodiac sign is Taurus, and he holds American nationality. He’s a college student, while he’s probably known best for being the son of Jo Koy, a famous American stand-up comedian and actor.
Early life and education
Joseph was raised in Los Angeles by his father and his mother Angie King, a non-celebrity American woman; his parents weren’t married, and split when he was still a child, but both remained equally involved in his upbringing.
Joseph had a rather normal childhood, as his father kept him away from the media’s attention while he was growing up.
He became interested in various activities while attending a local high school, including acting with the school’s drama club, and singing, while he was also into sports, and played basketball for the school team.
Joseph matriculated in 2021, and although he hasn’t spoken of his further education, it’s said that he’s enrolled at college, from which he should be graduating in 2025.
Joseph is yet to launch his career in any field, but it’s said that he’s already done some modelling work, wanting to make some money for himself.
One can say that he’s a social media star, as his Instagram account’s today followed by more than 50,000 people, while he‘s uploaded close to 20 pictures onto it, the majority featuring Joseph during his everyday life.
Love life and girlfriend
Joseph prefers to keep the details of his love life away from the media’s attention, and hasn’t spoken of any girls (or boys) whom he has perhaps been with. There are still various rumors circulating the internet today, concerning both his current relationship status, and his sexual orientation.
Some of Joseph’s fans believe that he’s today in a relationship with his high school sweetheart, and that the two have been together for around three years now; they have apparently been spotted spending time together on a number of occasions, but Joseph hasn’t addressed these rumors, nor has any evidence been provided to support these.
There are also those who believe that he’s gay, claiming that this is why Joseph avoids talking about girls, but this hasn’t been confirmed either.
As of June 2022, Joseph seems to be unattached.

It was directed by Cyrus Mirakhor, starred Myndy Crist, James Denton and John N. Dvorak, and follows a widowed mortician who has received a life-size doll as a gift from her mother, while the doll has now come to life as her deceased husband; the movie won seven of the 13 awards for which it was nominated.
Jo Koy was raised in Spanaway, Washington State alongside his three siblings Rowena Cook, Gemma Herbert and Robert Herbert, by their mother Josie Harrison, and their father whose name remains undisclosed. Jo Koy initially attended Spanaway Lake High School, but after he and his family moved back to Tacoma, he enrolled at Foss High school, matriculating in 1989. The family then moved once again, this time to Las Vegas, Nevada, where Jo Koy attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, but dropped to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian.
He launched his career in 1994, with a performance at a Las Vegas comedy club; not long after that, Jo Koy was invited to perform as a regular in the comedy club Catch a Rising Star. He gathered enough money to rent Huntridge Theater for his own comedy show, and went door to door to sell the tickets.

He was nominated for a 2019 Method Fest Award Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film, for his performance in the aforementioned “Wake.”
Jo Koy is currently shooting for the upcoming movies “Metal Shop Masters” and “The Monkey King”.
Since 27 September 2021, Jo Koy has been in a relationship with Chelsea Handler, a famous American actress, comedienne and TV show host; Chelsea has appeared in close to 30 movies and TV series, and is perhaps still known best for her portrayal of Trish in the 2012 romantic action comedy movie “This Means War”. It was directed by McG, starred Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hardy and Chris Pine, and follows two CIA operatives who have turned against each other now that they have learned that they are dating the same woman; the film won one of the seven awards for which it was nominated.
