Jeong played a doctor on ABC's "Dr. Ken".

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.

Jeong's representative, Michelle Margolis, declined to make additional comments beyond saying the TMZ story was "accurate".

Jeong had already brought up his past as a medical professional in his act, Holmberg said, and audience members urged him to help. It was such flawless timing: "Ken just jumped from the stage to help", another audience member, Heather Holmberg, told USA Today of the incident. At first the "Hangover" star, who was performing live at the time, thought he was being heckled but quickly realized the situation was far more serious than that.
