Universal has revealed the first official trailer for Easter Sunday, the new comedy starring stand up comic Jo Koy, directed by comedy mastermind Jay Chandrasekhar (of Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest, The Babymakers). Set around a family gathering to celebrate Easter Sunday, the comedy will be based on Jo Koy's life experiences and stand-up comedy.

Yang, Tia Carrere, Brandon Wardell, the Tony nominee Eva Noblezada, Lydia Gaston, Asif Ali, Rodney To, Eugene Cordero, Jay Chandrasekhar, Tiffany Haddish, and Lou Diamond Phillips.
