Comedian-actor Ken Jeong didn’t just play a doctor on television, he actually has a medical degree. It came in handy in Phoenix over the weekend, when he helped a woman at his show who had a seizure.
The actor’s representative, Michelle Margolis, confirmed that Jeong and an emergency medical technician in the audience Saturday at Stand Up Live took care of the woman until paramedics arrived.
Jeong came down from the stage of the downtown comedy club when he realized someone was in trouble.
TMZ reported that he initially thought the commotion was caused by a heckler.
The woman was taken to a hospital.
Neither her identity nor her condition were released.
The 48-year-old performer went back to the stage and finished his show.
Jeong is best known for his role “The Hangover” movie franchise. He also starred as TV’s “Dr. Ken” and was a regular on “Community.”
He has remained a license physician in California, although he no longer practices.
Jeong received his medical degree from the University of North Carolina in 1995.
