Comedian Ken Jeong stops act to help audience member

Posted May 08, 2018

Jeong stayed with the woman until she recovered and was taken away by ambulance. He was playing with them from the stage for a second and it was like, 'No, no, no.

Witness Heather Holmberg tweeted out that Jeong was in the middle of his act when a disruption began in the crowd.

Jeong earned his undergraduate degree at Duke University before receiving a medical degree at the University of North Carolina.

The comedian's publicist Michelle Margolis confirmed Jeong's aid at the club, as first reported by TMZ. In addition to "Dr. Ken", Jeong has also appeared in "The Hangover" movie franchise and TV's "Community". Ken thinks its heckling, when people are asking for his help.

As he helped the woman, he received assistance from a member of the audience who happens to be an EMT. TMZ reports the audience responded by giving him a round of applause. But when an audience member suddenly had a medical emergency, Jeong (who is still a licensed physician and surgeon in the state of California) sprang into action. She regained consciousness and was taken to a hospital.

Though he's known for his roles in comedies like The Hangover and the aforementioned ABC sitcom, the Crazy Rich Asians actor also obtained his medical license after completing his residency at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans during his early career.
