Ken Jeong is the latest comedian to land a special over at Netflix, as news surfaced this week. Before taking over movie screens, Jeong spent most of his time perfecting his craft on the comedy stage. For the upcoming ‘Ken Jeong: First Date’ comedy special viewers are set to hear about Jeong’s career changes from a doctor to a comedic actor. A date for the Netflix special has yet to be announced.
The former Dr. Ken star will film the special this fall at the venue where he got his start – the legendary Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, California. Tentatively titled Ken Jeong: First Date, the premiere date is yet to be determined. In the special, Jeong comes full circle and returns to the stage to reflect on how he went from being a doctor to comedy superstar, and opening up about his wife’s battle with breast cancer and how that led to him starring in one of the biggest comedy franchises of all time, The Hangover. Jeong and Brett Carducci will serve as Executive Producers.
