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

Comedian and actor Ken Jeong is a man of many talents, and one of those talents is being an actual doctor, it turns out.

Jeong was on stage at the Stand Up Live Comediy Club in Phoenix on Saturday night when the trained physician and former star of ABC's "Dr. Ken" jumped from the stage to help a woman in the third row who needed medical aid.

A representative for Jeong confirmed to EW that he and an emergency medical technician helped the woman until paramedics arrived, as first reported by TMZ.

"It got very quiet very quickly", audience member Heather Holmberg told The Washington Post.

The lights came on, and it became clear the woman was having an apparent seizure, an audience member later said.

Jeong was joined by an EMT who was also in the audience and stayed with the woman until paramedics arrived. Ken thinks its heckling, when people are asking for his help.

"He literally jumped off the stage and ran right over there", she said. "He's extremely amusing, and gracious", Holmberg said.

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. He was playing with them from the stage for a second and it was like, 'No, no, no.

ET Online reports Jeong is now licensed as a physician and surgeon in California, although he longer practices medicine.
