Ken Jeong, Netflix announce former doctor’s first stand-up special

Ken Jeong, comedian, actor and former physician, announced today on social media that he will return to his stand-up roots for his first-ever Netflix comedy special, Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho. The special was filmed at the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California where he first got started in 1995. In this Netflix special, Jeong reflects on his shift from physician to stand-up and how it is to attribute his career success.

Most known for his roles in the Hangover trilogy and hit TV show, Community, Jeong actually started in stand-up decades ago when he began to perform at the Improv, Laugh Factory, and the Ice House. It wasn’t until Jeong filmed his role in the hit 2007 comedy Knocked Up that he fully committed to acting and entertainment and quit his medical practice.

That doesn’t mean he can’t still save lives. Last year, the Masked Singer judge jumped off the stage during a stand-up set to aid an audience member having a medical emergency.

After another stand-out performance in 2018 blockbuster, Crazy Rich Asians, Jeong worked again with Jon M. Chu., who directed his first stand-up special with You Complete Me, Ho.

The comedy special will premiere on February 14 on Netflix.
