‘They’re the one you’re laughing at’: Jo Koy desperately tried to vindicate ‘unfunny’ Golden Globes 2024 by blaming his writers that backfired terribly

Jo Koy tried to fault his writers for his disappointing Golden Globes 2024 comedy set.

Jo Koy, the host of the 81st Golden Globes Awards ceremony, is facing criticism for his opening monologue. Many have labeled his speech as “unfunny,” with numerous Hollywood A-listers in attendance expressing dissatisfaction with his jokes. In fact, he tried to vindicate his jokes by blaming his writers.

As the second Asian host in Golden Globes history, Jo Koy created awkward moments for many celebrities with his opening monologue. This is largely because of the fact that most of his jokes were just plain awkward and they rarely landed.

Jo Koy Tried To Pin Blame On His Writers For His Disastrous Monologue

At the start of his monologue, comedian Jo Koy tried to temper expectations about his Golden Globes stand-up monologue by pretty much blaming his writers, stating that he was only given that gig 10 days ago.

“I got this gig 10 days ago,” he told the audience. “You want a perfect monologue? I wrote some of these [jokes] and they’re the ones you’re laughing at.”

Obviously, that didn’t really soften the blow any bit as everyone in attendance groaned at almost all of his jokes. Nonetheless, it ended up damaging his reputation more and it is likely Jo Koy won’t be featured in the Golden Globes ever again.

According to Deadline, Jo Koy attempted to inject humor into the Golden Globes with jokes about Meryl Streep, Succession, Oppenheimer, Ryan Gosling, Harry & Meghan, and Hall & Oates. While he achieved occasional success, one notable zinger involved calling out Saltburn‘s naked-dancing Barry Keoghan in the audience.

“Where is your pen*s seated?”

Koy also revisited the topic by addressing Bradley Cooper’s fake nose from Maestro, suggesting, “Watch Saltburn, that thing was dancing.” Arguably, one of the standout jokes from the opening monologue revolved around Only Murders in the Building and a feuding pop singing duo, where he said: “You don’t know whose side to be on. That’s how I feel about Daryl Hall and John Oates.”
