Jo Koy’s “Easter Sunday” is the Family Movie You Didn’t Know Your Family Needed
We all have experienced the comedy “coin”. On one side, comedy is a mirror; it shows us our own shenanigans, which is why we laugh so hard, right? On the flip side, comedy is medicine. That good ol’, belly-busting laughter heals, mends, and takes the heavy weight off of this mad-complicated thing called family.
