In the video, we see Handler talking about her experience with Koy, and how he changed everything when it came to dating. She said, “Before I started dating Jo Koy, I was like, ‘Oh my god are guys serious? Like, they can’t be!’ And then I met Jo, I knew Jo, and I was like ‘Oh, that’s not true!’ He redeemed men in my eyes, like that’s not true for all men.”

“And yes, there are some really problematic men out there,” she started with a giggle. “But that’s always been the case, but it’s nice to know that there are men out there that are just wonderful, gonna add value, and listen to what you have to say instead of interrupting you every two seconds.”
