Ken Jeong Answers Audience Questions in ‘Ask Dr. Ken’


Thank you, I am Ken Jeong,
or as Ellen pronounces it, Ken Je-young. Now it is an honor to be
guest hosting for Ellen, diggle in her generous. So– but as you can see
Ellen isn’t here today. I want to tell you exactly
what she’s going through, but you know my
movie, The Hangover? You know that? Actually it’s not that. I just wanted to plug
my movie The Hangover. So it’s doing amazing on DVD. Now Ellen has the day
off, so obviously I was asked to fill in because
apparently she and I wear the same size suit. Actually you know what? My wife and kids are here
today in the audience. Where are they? I Want to give them a shout out. Hey! Look at them. Oh, wow. Look at the frown
on their faces, huh? Yeah. All right, all right. Wow. I didn’t force her
to be here at all. That is my wife, if you go back. That’s my wife Tran. That is– yes. [CHEERING] And that is the apple
of my eye, Alexa. Yes. [CHEERING] And what’s your name, sweetie? I’m kidding. Zooey. Zooey. Don’t get mad, don’t get mad. All right, all right, all
right, all right, all right, all right. Don’t worry, we’re
cutting all this. Now I’ll be honest,
I brought them here because I’m a little nervous. This is actually my– it’s actually my first time
ever hosting a talk show, so thank you Ellen. This has been a huge honor. [CHEERING] I’ve had an amazing time. It’s been incredible. I have never, ever
done this before, so I just gotta I
reference what I know. So I’m an actor. I’m a comedian. And this is true. I’m also a doctor. So just for me to make
me feel comfortable, I need you all to disrobe. If that’s OK. No? OK. Yeah, it’s true. I was a general practitioner
and I worked full time. Actually I would– any general
practitioners in the crowd? Good. Let’s talk about them. General practitioners, we are
the dumbest of all doctors. All right? Like in general I knew nothing. OK? If a patient came up to me, say,
doctor, what would do I have? I don’t know. In general you’re sick. I don’t know these things. I’m going to refer
you to a specificicst. Now my whole point is I
love doing comedy This is– I’m living out a dream, but
honestly I miss my patients, and I miss helping people. So today I thought
I’d help all of you out with any medical
questions you may have in my segment, Ask Dr. Ken. [MUSICPLAYING] Those are my real abs. I had a sit up coach. Where is Adrienne Lee? My question was, why do
some Asians get Asian glow, and is it dangerous? Got it, why do some
Asians get Asian glow, or like the Asian
flush if you will. Like basically it is due
to a lack of an enzyme called acetaldehyde
dehydrogenase, age which metabolizes
alcohol in the body. And when you have an
accumulation of said substance, you can get that Asian
glow, or in American terms looks like a tomato. So it’s– and but
just to be clear, I can also answer non
Asian medical questions. I just wanted to
throw that out there. I don’t want everyone to
assume that’s my only area of expertise. So you know. I help out whites. OK, so umm yup. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, Adrienne. [APPLAUSE] Keep it real, Adrienne. All right. So where is Mafa– Ameperosa? It’s actually Mafa. Mafa. That’s what I said. I said that. Hi Dr. Ken Jeong. Hi, Mafa. Hi, my question is, what
is your medical opinion on medicinal use of
cannabis or marijuana? Yes. Next question? Yes? Yup yup. I have some more in
the back of my Camry. Now, where is Huijeong Hong. Again, this doesn’t have
to be an Asian question. So but Huijeong. Yes. Hello Dr. Ken Jeong. My question is,
I’m wondering why I started to sweat only
half side of my face when I eat really spicy food. Excuse me for a second. Web M.D. Half my face. Sweat. Oh, we’re out of time. Sorry. Yay. Good job.
