NPR: My Big Break – Ken Jeong: Doctor By Day, Comedian By Night

Apparently, National Public Radio has started a new series of interviews titled My Big Break, and doctor / comedian Ken Jeong gives his account how he moved from being a doctor to a comedian / actor.

Jeong says his big break was when he played a character named Dr. Kuni in the 2007 film Knocked Up.

Personally, I’ve not necessarily been a big fan of Jeong’s characters in the move The Hangover or in Community, but I am sure glad he is a Hollywood actor representing Asian Americans in non-traditional personalities (he’s also a fellow Duke alum, which I think is pretty cool).

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .

About John

I'm a Taiwanese-American and was born & raised in Western Massachusetts, went to college in upstate New York, worked in Connecticut, went to grad school in North Carolina and then moved out to the Bay Area in 1999 and have been living here ever since - love the weather and almost everything about the area (except the high cost of housing...)
