Holmberg told the publication Jeong continued with his show once he and a paramedic tended to the unidentified woman, who was later transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

A representative for Jeong confirmed to EW that he and an emergency medical technician helped the woman until paramedics arrived, as first reported by TMZ.

An audience member told USA Today that initially, the comedian thought he was being heckled. An EMT in the audience also provided quick assistance.

Jeong has appeared in "The Hangover" movie franchise and TV's "Dr. Ken" and "Community".

The comedian went back to performing, said Holmberg in a tweet.

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

Heather Holmberg, who was in the audience at the time, took to Twitter to share her first-hand experience.

"So I went to University of North Carolina's School of Medicine, but acting was like a lover I never got over", Jeong said in the article.

Jeong, the son of South Korean immigrants, moved to Greensboro from Detroit when he was 4, according to a 2013 Charlotte Observer story.

Though he's known for his roles in comedies like The Hangover and the aforementioned ABC sitcom, the Crazy Rich Asians actor also obtained his medical license after completing his residency at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans during his early career.
