During his stand-up act, Jeong was forced to stop his show and help an audience member who was having a seizure in the third row, according to TMZ. "The timing was very flawless, Ken just jumped from the stage to help", says Holmberg, noting that the woman appeared to be having a seizure.
After that, Jeong reportedly stepped right back up on stage and continued his set and got the room laughing again. Ken thinks its heckling, when people are asking for his help. He was assisted by a member of the audience who is an emergency medical technical, Holmberg tweeted.
It was a moment where time stands still.
Jeong has appeared in "The Hangover" movie franchise and TV's "Dr. Ken" and "Community". Someone was having a crisis. Jeong tended to her until paramedics arrived, then resumed his show. "Great night! He is gracious and grateful.AND flipping amusing!" Jeong first believed he was being heckled by someone from the audience, but then realized what was happening and quickly provided aid.
Paging "Dr. Ken" never sounded more serious.
TMZ reported that Jeong, who obtained his medical degree in the 1990s, cleared the area and provided medical assistance with the help of an emergency medical technician in the crowd until paramedics arrived.
Jeong began his career as a medical doctor, and is now licensed as a physician and surgeon in California.
