As Jo Koy stepped into the spotlight as the first-time host of the 81st annual Golden Globes, the comedic journey that unfolded proved to be a rollercoaster of laughs and unexpected twists.

Not one to let a good roast opportunity slip by, Chelsea Handler took center stage at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards. Adding to this, she playfully took a jab at her ex-boyfriend Jo Koy. Injecting humor into the atmosphere, Handler showcased her preference for “old and hot” guys. Moreover, she singed out attendees like Harrison Ford, Robert De Niro, and Martin Scorsese as “smoke show” examples. With a cheeky remark about tossing Jo Koy around “like a little Italian meatball,” Handler had the audience.
