Ken Jeong's medical degree is nothing to laugh at.
The 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 that 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."

Heather Holmberg, who was in the audience of the show, told USA Today that Jeong thought he was being heckled before he realized audience members were asking for help.
"It was a moment where time stands still. Someone was having a crisis. There was a hush over the room," she said.
