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

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. But when an audience member suddenly had a medical emergency, Jeong (who is still a licensed physician and surgeon in the state of California) sprang into action. "The timing was very ideal, Ken just jumped from the stage to help", says Holmberg, noting that the woman appeared to be having a seizure.

Heather Holmberg was in the audience and tweeted that Jeong initially thought the crowd was heckling him when they asked for help for the unidentified woman. Ken thinks its heckling, when people are asking for his help.

"He couldn't see what was going on with the lights". "He realized there was an issue, and he came over. It was a moment where time stands still.There was a hush over the room", she told USAToday.

He assisted the woman until an ambulance arrived, USA Today said, then returned to the stage and finished his routine. Someone was having a crisis.

Comedian Ken Jeong is well-known for various parts, including an incompetent Spanish instructor on "Community", a gang boss in "The Hangover", and a doctor on the short-lived ABC series "Dr. Ken".

ET Online reports Jeong is now licensed as a physician and surgeon in California, although he longer practices medicine. The woman was taken to an area hospital and there was no immediate word on her identity or condition, reported Fox.
