PHOENIX (AP) — Ken Jeong’s medical degree is nothing to laugh at.
The comedian’s training came in handy on May 5 when an audience member began having a seizure while Jeong was performing at a comedy club in Phoenix.
The actor’s representative, Michelle Margolis, confirmed reports that the 48-year-old Jeong and an emergency medical technician in the audience helped the woman until paramedics arrived. She was taken to a hospital. There was no immediate word on the woman’s identity or condition.
Jeong has appeared in “The Hangover” movie franchise and TV’s “Dr. Ken” and “Community.”
Prior to Hollywood, Jeong earned a medical degree from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
