MANILA – Filipino-American comedian Jo Koy is postponing his upcoming show in Cebu to a later date following the shutdown of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport due to ashfall from Taal Volcano.

On Instagram, Jo Koy announced that his Cebu show at the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino originally scheduled on January 14 will now be on January 17.

However, his show at the Mall of Asia Arena on January 15 will push through.

Following his announcement, the comedian asked his followers to include in their prayers the Filipino families affected by the Taal volcanic activity.

Located in the middle of a picturesque lake south of the capital, the Taal Volcano on Sunday belched a massive ash cloud that drifted across parts of Luzon, including Metro Manila. 

Seismology institute Phivolcs earlier raised the danger level posed by Taal Volcano to 4 out of a possible 5, meaning "hazardous explosive eruption is possible within hours to days."

One of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines, Taal has erupted more than 30 times in the past 5 centuries, most recently in 1977.
