Ken Jeong's Medical Training Comes in Handy During Show

Actor Ken Jeong reportedly helped a woman in his live audience when she required medical attention

Over the weekend, actor and comedian Ken Jeong showed his real medical skills during a live comedy show in Arizona!

With the fortuitous help of an EMT in the audience, the woman eventually recovered and was taken away by ambulance, and Jeong finished his set without incident.

Ken is a licensed doctor, although he no longer practices.

"He jumps off stage to assist".

Audience members were still stunned and confused through the five-minute ordeal, Holmberg said.

He played a doctor in ABC sitcom Dr Ken, which mustn't have been too much of a stretch given his history. "He's a very amusing man, but you were able to see a side of him that's very compassionate", says Holmberg. "They were very, very respectful", she said.

The actor's rep, Michelle Margolis, confirmed the news of Jeong's timely medical intervention, as first reported by TMZ.

At least one audience member thought he nailed the performance. "Great night! He is gracious and grateful".

Jeong received his medical degree in 1995 from the UNC-Chapel Hill, though he soon began moonlighting as a comic. He leveraged his medical experience in a short performance in the film "Knocked Up" and in his own sitcom "Dr. Ken", which was canceled after two seasons previous year.

ET Online reports Jeong is now licensed as a physician and surgeon in California, although he longer practices medicine.

"What do you call the guy who graduates last in your class at med school?"
