(RNN) – Actor and stand-up comedian Ken Jeong proved that his medical degree is no farce.

He was performing at a comedy club in Phoenix over the weekend when a woman in the audience began having a seizure.

Jeong stopped his show and tended to the woman, along with an EMT, until paramedics arrived. She was taken to a hospital.

Jeong gave up his medical career in favor of acting and stand-up comedy. He’s appeared in "The Hangover" movie series, TV's "Dr. Ken” and "Community."
