Stand-up comic and actor Ken Jeong's unconventional trajectory in the world of entertainment is common knowledge by now. A licensed physician specializing in internal medicine, Jeong began to gain national recognition with his minor role as a doctor in Judd Apatow's movie "Knocked Up," before achieving breakout fame as Mr. Chow in "The Hangover" comedy trilogy. Frequently cast as an over-the-top but quirky antagonist, his first stand-up special "Ken Jeong: You Complete Me, Ho" utilizes the comedian's flair for physical humor and blue punchlines. The crux of the material is a distillation of Jeong's comedy from the last 10-plus years, drawing from his experiences as a Korean American and his unlikely celebrity status.
