Michael Kosta will emcee Gilda's LaughFest 2015's Signature Event at DeVos Place Tuesday night.

He joined "The Jojo Show" to talk about the success of LaughFest and other things.

Kosta is emerging on the comedy scene after several hilarious appearances on NBC's The Tonight Show. He also was a panelist for the Fox Sports One show The Crowd Goes Wild.

The Ann Arbor native will emcee the Signature Event, which also features Sinbad, Kathleen Madigan, Justin Willman and Jim Breuer.

On "The Jojo Show," Michael told me about how he got his start in comedy, why sports and comedy don't mix, and why he went to Illinois to play college tennis, rather than for the University of Michigan in his hometown of Ann Arbor.

Here's a sampling of Michael's stand up talents, which will be on display at LaughFest.
