Ken Jeong gives medical attention to fan during stand-up show

After he graduated from Duke University in 1990, Jeong earned a medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine five years later.

Ken was doing a comedy set at Stand Up Live Saturday night in Phoenix, where a lady began seizing in the third row toward the beginning of the show. During a performance at Stand Up Live, Jeong thought he was being heckled by a woman in the crowd who was actually having a seizure.

TMZ was the first to report the incident Sunday, saying Jeong cleared the area and attended to the fan until paramedics arrived. They waited with the woman until ambulances arrived and she gained consciousness, where she was rushed to the hospital.

The comedian went back to performing, said Holmberg in a tweet. But not before he reportedly received a round of applause from the crowd.

Once the woman was taken care of, Jeong hopped back on stage and within minutes was able to finish his set and get the tensed-up audience laughing once more. According to witnesses, the actor didn't think twice about stopping his show completely to help her.

Though he's known for his roles in comedies like The Hangover and the aforementioned ABC sitcom, the Crazy Rich Asians actor also obtained his medical license after completing his residency at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans during his early career.
