Comedian Jo Koy has been tapped to host the 81st Annual Golden Globes airing in January.

The ceremony, which will air Sunday, Jan. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and stream on Paramount+, marks Koy’s Golden Globes hosting debut, as well as marks the first awards show the comedian as ever hosted.

Recently wrapping up his “Funny Is Funny World Tour,” the stand-up comedian has released five specials across Comedy Central and Netflix, including his recent Netflix special, “Live from the Los Angeles Forum.” Koy starred in Universal Picture’s “Easter Sunday,” which was based on his own experiences and stand-up, and was featured in Disney’s “Haunted Mansion” and the voice cast Netflix’s animated film “Monkey King.”
