PHOENIX — Ken Jeong’s medical degree is nothing to laugh at.

The physician-turned-comedian’s training came in handy Saturday when an audience member began having a seizure while Jeong was performing at a comedy club in Phoenix.

The actor’s representative, Michelle Margolis, confirmed reports the 48-year-old Jeong and an emergency medical technician in the audience helped the woman until paramedics arrived.

She was taken to a hospital. There was no immediate word on the woman’s identity or condition.

Jeong has appeared in “The Hangover” movie franchise and TV’s “Dr. Ken” and “Community.”
