Ken Jeong Tickets
Ken Jeong TicketsKen Jeong's story is well-known by now, but it bears retelling: Growing up, Jeong was urged by his parents to choose a stable career. He went to medical school and became a doctor, performing stand-up comedy in his spare time. In 1995, he won the Big Easy Laff-Off in New Orleans. The competition was judged by Budd Friedman, founder of the Improv, and Brandon Tartikoff, then president of NBC. Jeong was urged to go to LA and build a career there. In LA, Jeong performed stand-up and worked at a Kaiser Permanente hospital in Woodland Hills. He was cast as a doctor in Knocked Up and rose to real stardom when he played Mr. Chow in the 2009 comedy The Hangover. Today, he continues to perform stand-up comedy all over the country.
Hard Work Pays OffNow in his 50s, Ken Jeong has been working the stand-up circuit for decades. He's always stated that he may not be the best comic, but he is the hardest working. This commitment shows in his live performances. During his student years, he was a fixture at comedy events in Raleigh-Durham, N.C. As a young comic, he opened for famous stand-ups, including Margaret Cho and Jeff Dunham. Today, Jeong is a headliner. As a stand-up, he's known for his quick wit and facility for crowd work. He's stated that the same skills that made him a doctor made him a good comedian and vice-versa. Though he still maintains his California medical license, Jeong no longer practices medicine.
