Jo Koy, in his first stand-up performance since hosting the Golden Globes, criticized the celebrity audience at the awards show. Referring to them as "marshmallows," Koy joked about their softness and their inability to laugh at themselves. He also addressed the audience directly, expressing relief that they likely did not watch his opening monologue at the Golden Globes. 

Koy faced backlash for making a joke about Taylor Swift during the monologue, with social media users noting the singer's icy glare in response. Koy has since admitted that the joke fell flat and clarified that he did not intend to criticize Swift. He explained that the joke was aimed at the NFL, not the artist. Other comedians, such as Sara Haines and Whoopi Goldberg, have defended Koy, emphasizing the challenges of hosting live shows.
