He was born in Detroit, Michigan, to Korean immigrants Young and Dong-Kuen Jeong, a professor at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro. After graduating from Duke University & attaining his MD at the University of North Carolina, Ken completed his Internal Medicine residency in New Orleans while developing a cult comedy following. While in New Orleans, Ken won the "Big Easy Laff-off". Late NBC president Brandon Tartikoff and "Improv" founder Budd Friedman judged the competition and advised Ken to move to Los Angeles. Once residing in LA, Ken began performing regularly at the Improv & Laugh Factory. Soon after he appeared on ABC's The View and was named "The Funniest Doctor in America". Subsequent appearances on Comedy Central & BET cemented his reputation as a comic who appeals to a wide variety of audiences.
