PHOENIX (CelebrityAccess) Ken Jeong, star of TV shows “Dr. Ken” and “Community” and known for his unforgettable role in the “Hangover” movies, stopped his live comedy show in Phoenix to assist with an audience member’s medical emergency.
Jeong was a physician before he became a celebrity. The situation occurred at the Stand UP Live Comedy Club Saturday night. Jeong apparently heard a commotion in the crowd and thought he was being heckled.
“He couldn’t see what was going on with the lights. He thought he was being heckled. He was playing with them from the stage for a second,” Said one audience member on Twitter. “And it was like, ‘No, no, no. We need you!’ He realized there was an issue, and he came over. It was a moment where time stands still. Someone was having a crisis. There was a hush over the room.”
Jeong stayed with the women, who was in the third row, until she was taken away by ambulance then returned to his routine.
@kenjeong at Stand Up Live! A woman had a medical emergency during the show. Ken thinks its heckling, when people are asking for his help. He jumps off stage to assist. An EMT helped, too. Then on with the show! Great night! He is gracious and grateful…AND flipping funny! pic.twitter.com/G0nMWb5wMM
