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

Witnesses at a comedy club in Phoenix said Jeong jumped off stage to help a woman in the audience who appeared to be having a seizure on Saturday. It was such flawless timing: "Ken just jumped from the stage to help", says Holmberg, noting that the woman appeared to be having a seizure.

Jeong, an internal medicine practitioner turned Hollywood funnyman, cleared the area and attended to the woman alongside a medic who happened to be in attendance, Holmberg said in a Sunday tweet. An EMT in the audience also came quickly for assistance. "It was a moment where time stands still.There was a hush over the room", she told USAToday. She regained consciousness and was taken to a hospital. Upon hearing the commotion, Jeong first thought he was being heckled - but then leapt into action when he realized something was amiss, stopping his set and rushing to the woman's aid. "Great night! He is gracious and grateful".

Jeong often plays a doctor on TV and was able to use his real-life medical training to help the woman.


Paging "Dr. Ken" never sounded more serious.

Jeong is best known for his comedy roles in shows like "Community" and "The Hangover" film series, but his education includes pre-med at Duke University and medical school at UNC Chapel Hill.

Although he no longer practices, he's a licensed physician in the state of California.
