‘Easter Sunday’ Trailer: Comedian Jo Koy Celebrates The “Filipino Super Bowl” In New Family Comedy

If you’ve seen comedian Jo Koy’s stand-up, you know it’s filled with crazy stories about his Filipino-American family. He’s got the kind of endearing humor that is easy to like, which explains his decades-long career. Well, Koy is leaning into that with his first major leading role in the comedy, Easter Sunday.

Directed by Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar, known for cult favorite Super Troopers, and co-written by Ken Cheng and Kate Angelo, Easter Sunday follows a fictionalized version of Koy as he returns home to his demanding, but hilarious, family for Easter festivities.

The cast includes Jimmy O. Yang, Tia Carrere (always good to see her), Eva Noblezada, Eugene Cordero, Jay Chandrasekhar, Brandon Wardell, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Tiffany Haddish.

Easter Sunday will open in theaters on August 5th.

Stand-up comedy sensation Jo Koy (Jo Koy: In His Elements, Jo Koy: Comin’ in Hot) stars as a man returning home for an Easter celebration with his riotous, bickering, eating, drinking, laughing, loving family, in this love letter to his Filipino-American community.
